How to Improve Your Interpersonal Communication Skills

Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing. - Rollo May
Interpersonal communication competence consists of a set of skills, knowledge about communication, and self-evaluation. Competent interpersonal communication skills include self-disclosure, owned feelings and thoughts, and descriptiveness and support. Whenever we communicate we always do the following two things simultaneously:

1.Representation - We represent some information. We make some statement about the world around us.

2.Presentation - We present the information in a particular way, which will then define our relationship with the other person in a particular way.

The Art of Effective Interpersonal Communication

The Art of Effective Interpersonal Communication | Journey of Communication | Scoop.it
A discussion of Interpersonal Communication. What it is and how to make it effective.

 

You will be shown that there are three factors involved in effective interpersonal communications and without these factors communications cannot occur. While all three are important effective listening stands out first because if you don't listen you cannot communicate effectively. Constructive feedback allows you to respond appropriately and convey back to the communicator that you understood them. Using interactive body language draws your fellow communicator into the dialog more, conveying your interest in their subject. Interpersonal communication depends on many factors but there are three factors which stand out above the rest; effective listening, constructive feedback and interactive body language responses.

There is nothing very new in marriages in the new century. It’s only the stress of the increased pace of daily life that has compounded old problems. Without a firm faith in the Lord Jesus, it is impossible to have a vibrant, healthy marriage in our era. To have a happy home, a safe haven, one must learn to communicate.

For many, the term “communication” is ill-defined. Properly understood, communication involves both sending and receiving. There is only one thing worse than MIScommunication: that is DIScommunication. Most men desire intimacy with their wives, but few understand the art of true communication. No man is born with these skills: they must be learned. Furthermore, no man can master these skills by reading a textbook. He must have someone to learn these skills with. In the second chapter of the Bible, the Lord said that it was not good that a man should be alone. He needed another person to communicate with. Adam was incomplete without Eve.

In the Gospels, when the Father chose to communicate with humankind, He sent His Son to dialogue with us personally. Since most of Jesus’ teachings involve interpersonal relations with one another, this assumes He had marital communications in mind as well. Jesus desires a growing, loving relationship with His bride, the Church, through the communication of prayer. Communication is the basis of intimacy—and good communication means the ability to transmit and receive properly understood messages. Communication is the vehicle that takes a person on the road of deeper understanding. Superficial communication with one’s spouse, like superficial prayers, are not the answer.

Biblical Framework for Communication

Communication is part and parcel of God's intrinsic nature, simply because God is a personal God. God is depicted as a communicator in terms of His acts of creation (Gen.1: 3b, 9b, 11b, 26b). But making human beings wasn't his final activity; it was just the beginning of the story of a communicating God. Human beings are blessed with the gift of communication because they are created in the image of God. After the act of creation, God do not remain in eternal isolation but enters into relationship and communion with His creatures. The Bible is the record of God's communication to human beings (John 20: 30-31).

Guide to Giving and Receiving Constructive Feedback

Constructive feedback is important when working through any type of problem. Without providing feedback the situation is often left half handled and is more likely to become a problem again in the future. Although giving constructive feedback is a very important aspect of everyday life, one's ability to receive such feedback is of equally importance.
Feedback is vital to the overall improvement of one's self or of a team. You should not be surprised when you receive feedback nor should you stray from providing constructive peer feedback when necessary. A good way to set the stage for feedback amongst a group is to agree on guideline for providing such feedback. This will eliminate any misunderstanding when giving and receiving constructive feedback.

Essential Elements of Human Communication - Research and Analysis Essay

The process of communication between human beings has been studied, analyzed and dissected seemingly since the beginning of time. Our complexity is seen through our use of verbal and nonverbal communication on a daily basis, as well as our ability to interact with fellow human beings on multiple levels, mentally and emotionally. We begin communicating the moment we come out of the womb through an infant squall and do not stop communicating until death. There are several basic, essential components of human communication that must be understood before further, in-depth analysis can occur.

A basic definition of communication is: "the process of creating and sharing meaning through the use of symbols." The idea of communication being seen as a process is of most importance. You are a different person when you go to sleep at night because of the people you met, communicated with and interacted with throughout the day. Communication changes us. Verbal communication is, "the ways in which you use the words in a language to generate meaning." It is essentially any communication that uses language, whether it is oral or written. Symbols are used throughout verbal communication as sounds combined to make words-they symbolize ideas, thoughts, etc. Without symbols, communication would be meaningless.
