Confident Communicators and Fearful Communicators
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Try the experiment of communicating some experience to another person and you will find your own attitude towards your experience changing. – John Dewey
The Confident Communicator We will call our hypothetical Confident Communicator Carl. The key to being confident when you have to communicate with your spouse about an Internal Issue, is first to have defined your Core Values. A Confident Communicator such as Carl has most assuredly taken the time and effort to define his Core Values. He understands–or, through a process, has come to understand–who he is as a person. Moreover, if you were to ask Carl who he is as a person, he would be able to give you a concrete, verifiable, unchanging definition of himself and of his Core Values. A Confident Communicator will place boundaries around any given conversation and is therefore able to minimize or eliminate the chances of an emotionally bad outcome for himself in the communication. A Confident Communicator measures a conversation about an Internal Issue against his self-definition and can ensure that he won’t lose emotionally.
As a result, he is able to NOTICE situations, interactions, and, yes, communications with his partner that are–or that could be or that are becoming–incompatible or inconsistent with his Core Values. Using his self-definition as a benchmark in this way offers Carl a source of emotional protection in the conversation. The Fearful Communicator A Fearful Communicator is the opposite of a Confident Communicator. Let’s name our hypothetical Fearful Communicator Faye.
As a Fearful Communicator, Faye fears an emotional loss when communicating with her spouse about Internal Issues. Faye will narrowly focus on what effect a particular conversation will or might or could have on her emotionally. Faye will set her expectations regarding a conversation about an Internal Issue solely in terms of how much of herself she will,...
...initiatives to help provide safer care for patients undergoing cardiac surgery in the OR, ICU or in our cardiovascular floor. UT Southwestern provides several ways where patients and the general public can communicate to the institution regarding the quality of customer service and how satisfied or dissatisfied they were with the services provided and other factors related to their hospital visit. We frequently conduct patient satisfaction surveys and score them both in the institution level and departmental level. This form of outcomes assessment is extremely important to hospital executives and quality officers in increasing the quality, efficiency and effectiveness at UT Southwestern as well as reducing infections and hospital costs due to Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s). Our Patient Satisfaction and Experience Surveys ask patients who underwent surgery or other procedures questions such as: How was the ease of access to services? How were the interpersonal skills of the providers? There are two key surveys UT Southwestern conducts: The first is called the Consumer Assessment of healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) and the next is called Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAPHS). This is the most reliable and effective way we communicate with our patients regarding how satisfied they were with our services.
UT Southwestern frequently gets praise from our patients for the professionalism...
...In this day in age we need fast communication. The Internet has been the most widely
used tool of communication in the world. It is one of the best inventions of this century because
it allows for so many things to happen. Keeping in touch with family and friends via social
networks, email, and paying your bills online are just a few examples of why the Internet is the
best invention of this century.
There are several ways that people all over the world have to keep in touch with family
members. Most personal computers, laptops, tablets, and even some cellular phones now have
cameras on them. One of the most widely used social networks, Skype allows you to call a
device that has Skype application on it for free. When you call the different devices you can turn
on your camera and share video with the caller. If you don’t have a camera on your device you
simply talk as if it were a normal call or you can chat online. Also on Apple devices like
iPhone or iPAD there is an application named FaceTime, this application also allows for video
calling to other Apple devices. Another popular social network is Facebook. Although
Facebook doesn’t allow video calling, people still have the opportunity to chat online with others
thousands of miles away.
Another reason why the Internet is the greatest invention ever is email. If you are
just looking to send emails to your favorite people all you need is to create...
Unit Two Final Draft
In order to be an effective communicator, first you must be an effective listener. Everyday people throughout the world confuse hearing with listening. Listening is described as the process of making meaning out of another person’s spoken message whereas hearing is the physical process of perceiving sound according to Kory Floyd author of Interpersonal Communication. Jodi Brownell is a professor of organization communication and is an expert on listening. She has also created the HURIER model which describes the six steps of effective listening. Although each step plays an important role in the listening process they may be used interchangeably.
The first step in the HURIER model is hearing which has been described as the physical process of perceiving sound. (Floyd, 223) It is important to know that hearing is not the same as listening. A person can hear without listening however, they cannot listen without hearing. (Floyd, 223) It is also important to remember that hearing is not enough; you must understand what you are hearing to effectively listen.
In order to fully understand what is being conveyed to you through a message you need to be able to comprehend it. Let’s pretend that you are calling into your phone company’s customer service line. If the representative picks up and asks “how I may help” you with a strong accent you may not be able to understand it. To get over this hurdle it is the...
...method”. With the GTM, lessons were divided up into a reading section which usually featured a well- known text selected for its intellectual content followed by vocabulary lists with translation equivalents. Explanations of grammar were given in the students’ native language. Proficiency in the language was often judged according to criterion such as the ability to analyze the language into its syntactic structure.
In deed, the GTM is a language teaching method based on grammar analysis and the translation of sentences and text to and form the learners’ first and target languages_ Nunan [27, p. 308]. In grammar-translation classrooms, learners typically know a good deal about the language but are unable to use this knowledge to communicate appropriately. With grammar and translation drills, it is often difficult for learners to make the conceptual leap from the classroom to genuine communication outside the classroom. This is not to say that drills of these kinds have no place in the language classrooms, but it means that they are insufficient. The following is the principles of Grammar-Translation Method that Richards and Rodger [32, p. 32] present:
-Grammar rules and vocabulary of the target language are taught in mother tongue.
-Students are taught to translate from one language to another.
-Native language equivalents for foreign language vocabulary are required to memorize.
-The teacher is the authority in the classroom.
...PREPARE TO COMMUNICATE IN A BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT
List the reasons for identifying the purpose of communication, the audience and the outcomes to be achieved.
To save time by knowing what you want to say and how to say it
To be more composed and precise when talking
To be more efficient
To ensure that the audience is left knowing the purpose of the talk and what goals have been set.
List the different methods of communication and situations in which to use them.
Verbal communication is used when the person you want to communicate with is present or you are using the telephone.
E-mail is used when you do not require an immediate response, or do not have any other contact information for the recipient.
Written communication can be used instead of an email or when you have no access to a computer.
Communicate in Writing
Explain the reasons for checking work.
It is important to check work as it would look unprofessional if any work you produce had spelling mistakes or poor grammar. It’s also important to ensure that all details of the work are accurate and easy to understand.
Describe how you check the accuracy of your written communication.
I check the accuracy of my written work by following up on all details I input. I do this by phoning or emailing the person who I collected this from. This means all details in my work are accurate and easy to understand.
Describe how to use spell/grammar check.

...The Internet: A Way to Communicate
The word communicate means to send a message. You communicate when you talk to someone, or when you write a letter to a friend. Communication means all different ways of sending messages or passing information from one person to another. These include visual methods such as sign language, auditory, such as voice and music, and physical, such as touch. Communication allows us to give this information to others for the purpose of enriching life for ourselves and others.
We are living through a period characterized by the works of a new technological paradigm organized around information technologies. This period is being driven by the new information and communication technologies. It is the most important revolution since the industrial revolution.
Advances in electronics, computers, and satellites mean that we can send information farther and communicate faster than ever before. Powerful rockets have placed communications satellites in orbit around the earth. They relay thousands of telephone calls across continents so quickly that you can talk to people on the other side of the world as if they were next door. Communication satellites also carry television and radio programs, facsimile images, telex messages, and computer data.
One of the new communications technologies that are affecting our lives on a scale of significant as the telephone and television is the...

Touch Communicates Distinct Emotions

Touch Communicates Distinct Emotions
This article discusses touch, emotion, and communication. Past studies have focused solely on the emotional signaling of the face and voice. Through these three studies the authors investigate how different forms of touch communicate certain emotions. Our sense of touch is one of the most significant senses and is highly developed at birth. It is theorized in two ways; the first one being that touch communicates the Hedonic Tone Theory, relating to pleasure and claims that dimensions of feelings are based on a scale from positive to negative and touch intensifies or weakens the emotion. A positive emotion would express compassion and a negative emotion expresses hurt or anguish. The study is guided by the three motivations: modality (mode or manner), descriptions of physical signals used to communicate emotion, and discovering that humans have many emotions that are communicated through nonverbal behavior in.
The purpose of this study was to determine if touch, (pulling, lifting, squeezing, stroking, etc.,) could communicate specific emotions such as anger, love, gratitude, sadness, disgust, etc. The study was to describe the forms of touch used, prove that emotions communicated by touch could be...
