Effective Business Communication
Effective communication involves the transmission of information from one person to the pother in a way that can be interpreted for the actual meaning. In an organization, effective communication is essential since the employers can communicate instructions to employees for implementation. The employees can also effectively communicate to the management to express their views grievances and challenges they experience in their undertakings (Kaul, 2004). Modern communication methods include the use of modern devices such as radios, televisions, mobile phones computer and the Internet to relay information. However, the modern methods of communication have both social and psychological aspects. Communication involves many people, groups or organizations interacting. The social features of modern communication results from the influence of the information manifested amongst and the associated changes people for instance, the business managements and the customers. The psychological perspective of the modern communication ways may alternatively originate from the mental effects of the information and the description of the reactions of different interacting individuals or groups. The psychological aspects alter individuals’ behavior which translates into changes in practice (Kushal, 2009).
The modern methods of communication have led to diverse effects on people’s ways of doing things in the society. This has resulted from either the outstanding ease they render in communication or the difficulties they attribute to in their application. The modern ways have led to change in the belief amongst the members of the society. It is evident that many people have forgotten the natural way of communicating face to face by one another. This omission has occurred due to the increase in the Internet surfing and other forms of written communication like electronic mail amongst the youth. The digital communication has also affected the global soci9ety in a positive manner as a convenience and efficiency in communication has been advanced (Obaidat, 2011). The interaction in the society has been advanced by the modernity in communication and today many businesses are operated globally through teleconferencing which has greatly reduced much physical transportation by the business representatives.
The modern communication methods have led to tremendous changes in education worldwide. Through modernity, electronic learning has been enabled and one can attend a learning institution several kilometers from home without moving a single step from the doorstep. E- Learning demands, taking assignments and researches through the Internet, tackling them before submitting it to the tutor via the Internet (Roebuck, 2006). There are most online libraries through which learning materials fare obtained and in which substantial researches are carried out. The effect of the online sources on behavior has been that, the reading of the physical books or journals have been reduced.
Psychologically, the advanced communication systems can be used to determine behavior, predict changes in behavior and account for the alterations comprehensively. It is important to note that as the community increase the use of effective coommunicatio0n with time they come to assume that the current way is the original (Guffey, 2005). Members of the global community have been directed into believing that there has never been a different way of conveying information from and to different destinations and hence take the current way to be the official whether formal or informal. The short message services in cell phones do knot requires perfect or complete sentences. They are written to people who are well versed with the subject of discussion and simple phrases can be well understood by the recipient. This offers the explanation to the current problem experienced in the verbal sentence construction amongst people with numerous grammatical errors (Roebuck, 2006).
In businesses, there can exist psychological blocks which are closely related to individual emotions. There are circumstances in an organization that might lead to emotional blocks. These barriers are caused by the feelings and perceptions in people. During any presentations in the business, the perceptions in people may be triggered by their sex economic status or race. Most perceptions lead to negativity in communications as they attribute to negativity in assumptions that defects communication (Ruscher, 2002). The main cause of different emotional drive is caused by the difference in analysis and understanding of the topic of discussion. In some societies, where male chauvinism is embraced, any presentation by a female character is negated among men because of the ego-driven mentality that, females are weak. Nevertheless, research provides that in the communities without gender disparity and the plight of women an effective communication is not deterred with sex (Krey, 2006). When the information is considered without vetting its contents a significant effect may be realized because an effective communication is realized when the information relayed has no effects of inconvenience.
There are evidences that in the future, the communication systems will be distinctively sophisticated according to the current frequent developments (Guffey, 2009). The consequence of the improvement and the modernity might be that the erosion of the initial practices regarding to communication, but majorly fluency and consistency during communication. The derailment of the social aspects might increase because there will be no consideration of the previous communication modes and as a result a dynamic change in the society. In conclusion, the psychological aspects of modern communication methods have resulted to changes in the individual behavior which has resulted to changes in the ways of doing things in the society (Rodriques, 2002).
