Professional CommunicationIn today's technological world, people spend quite a bit of
time sending information via social networking sites, instant messaging and
e-mail as alternatives to traditional face-to-face and voice-to-voice
communications; however, communication is a two-way activity.
What is the role of the sender and receiver or
encoder/decoder in e-communication today?
How do you decide what type of communication tool to use?
What do you consider when selecting an e-communication
channel in a professional environment versus a social environment?
What are some of the things you anticipate from the receiver
or decoder side of the model today? For example, a speedy response via instant
messaging or the lack of spontaneity when using e-mail versus traditional
face-to-face discussions may drive the type of sender tool you use.
