My wife and I participated in communicating with an alphabet communication board. We attempted to discuss the evening plans including what we were eating for dinner and what we needed from the grocery store. As I started with the alphabet communication board, both her and I immediately discovered how difficult and time consuming communication would be. During my attempts to spell each word in a sentence, I found it difficult to indicate when the spelling of a word stopped and the next word began. This caused confusion with my communication partner as she continued to attempt to figure out the words within my sentence. Several times, I had to use a combination of head nods, eye contact and the yes/no portion of the communication board to indicate
In addition to being one of the most entertaining shows to binge in the background of daily life, The Office is considered to be one of the more quotable comedies the 2000s brought us. The show’s compilation of lovable and often stereotypical characters provided us with nine seasons worth of memorable tomfoolery, character development, and one-liners. But for the purpose of this paper we will be looking beyond the plethora of “Worlds Best Boss” mugs and “That’s what she said” jokes, and taking a cold, analytical look at The Office to determine what the show offers in regard to interpersonal communication.

The components of self, as described in the book are, “ . . . self-awareness, self-concept, and self-esteem” (McCornack 39).

As a police administrator of the law enforcement agency in Collierville, TN, I utilize several means communication for the cadets and in-service classes. The first thing I teach is to first remain calm in an effort to get collaboration from witnesses, victims, defendants, or anyone involved with any incident. If a leader cannot remain calm, how does anyone think that any of the parties involved to keep their composure? Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) has a motto, “Talk down before you take down”. Just because someone gets into a situation where he or she thinks use of force is necessary to diffuse a situation, talking can sometimes rectify incidents.

It is also known as nonverbal communication. This type of communication includes no words but gesture, body language, eye contact, posture or facial expressions. When we interact with others, we continuously exchange wordless signals. A considerable part of nonverbal communication is facial expressions as these indicate others about our feeling, attitudes, states of mind and relationships. Facial expression also plays a major role in communication since the expression on our face say a lot about our mood. Eye contact also plays a vital role in effective communication. There are times when we experience words that come out of our mouth and the ways we communicate through our body language are totally different. In this kind of situation, the receiver has to determine whether to believe verbal or nonverbal message. Regularly the receiver would select the nonverbal as it is more natural and it truly displays the speaker’s true feeling and intention. The gestures such as the way we sit, how fast and how loud we talk and how much eye contact we make send strong messages to the receiver. These messages are sent continuously even when we stop speaking. It means that even when we are silent, we are still communicating
Communication is an inevitable aspect of life. It is an event which happens almost every second of every day. Communication is an act of giving and receiving of information—desires, needs, perceptions, knowledge, etc.—of two or more persons through orthodox or unorthodox methods which can either be intentional or unintentional (de Valenzuela 2002).
