Mostly, communication is oral, face-to-face, and one-on-one. In our communication, we are the sender of a message, which goes to another co-worker, parent, child, supervisor who receives the message. From this point, we are looking for feedback whether it is a child or an adult from that message that was received effectively. The receiver who receives the message needs for it to be clear, believe it, and act on it. Remember that communication is part of every task or function we do.
There are six possible ways that a message is received:
1. What we meant to say.
2. What we actually say.
3. What the other person hears.
4. What the other person thinks they hear.
5. What the other person says about what you said.
6. What you think the other person said about what you said.
So, remember to think before you speak.
