P2 Describe the stages of the communication cycle

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Describe the stages of the communication cycle (P2) In this assignment I am going to describe the six stages of the communication cycle, which are ideas occur, message coded, message sent, message received, message decoded and message understood. Communication is where two or more people exchange information, ideas and feelings. Every time we want to start a conversation with another person we go through the six stages of the communication cycle with out realising it. The first stage of the communication cycle is called ideas occur or aiming. This is the process where we think about what we need to communicate and to who to communicate to. We unconsciously ask ourselves questions such as, what do we want to say? Who do I want to say it to? ...read more.

It is important for us to recognise that these things affect how we say what we want to say, to be able to communicate clearly to others. The third stage of the communication cycle is called message sent or transmitting. This process is where words are spoken or images are shown from one person to another person. The person talking needs to take into consideration the person they are talking to, they need to think about the language they talk in, will the person receiving the message understand, can I make it any clearer, is it the right time to tell them the information, is there anything that would distract the other person such as background noise and do I need to summarise the key points. ...read more.

Conclusion

The fifth stage of the communication cycle is called message decoded or decoding. This is the process where the receiver of the message translates the non-verbal and verbal communication used by the sender of the message. The message should be effectively translated if the sender has given enough attention to what they were saying, but the meaning of the message is the responsibility of the sender not the receiver. The final stage of the communication cycle is called message understood or responding. This process gives the receiver a chance to ask any questions and gives them clarification on the meaning of the message. This also gives the sender a chance to make sure they haven't missed out any stages of the communication cycle. ...read more.
