1LEADERSHIP COMMUNICATION1.Among three contexts for communication, the first one is intrapersonalcommunication, which involves only one person. It is often referred to as “self-talk”. Weuse language for reflecting on our personal experiences and even talking ourselvesthrough situations. Intrapersonal experience can be both positive and negative andinfluence the way we observe and respond to situations and communicate with others.The second major context is interpersonal communication, which generally involvestwo people. This type of communication ranges from being intimate to very personal, andthen to formal and then impersonal. The third communication context is groupcommunication, which is a dynamic process in which a small number of people getthemselves involved in the conversation. It is usually described as having an involvementof around three to six people. The bigger the conversation group the more probabilitythere is of breaking it down into smaller groups. Each of these contexts have some kindof influence on the communication process. These contexts at some point can overlap,which can create an even more dynamic process. Communication in these contexts overthe lifetime would help in its application with respect to the experience gained from eachof these contexts. 2.Organizations mostly see different forms of group communication inside them.Organizations generally have large groups in which a form of communication exists.While communicating in a diverse form of group, especially in a marketing department,the first and most important things to consider are age, gender, education and location forlearning more about the involved people and their generic preferences and even dislikes.In a department as big as marketing, several smaller groups are found, divided according

This knowledge about the group can be utilized forincreasing the efficiency of a business communicator.3.The key steps involved in having an effective two-way communication process are: Development of a notion that the sender wishes to conveyEncoding the idea to be communicated into proper words, signs or charts that wouldassist the transmission process. In this step, it is decided by the sender what methodof transmission would be used, as along with that the words and signs also needs tobe prearranged for transmission. The third step involves the act of transmission of the message with the help of thechosen method. Senders even attempt at keeping their communication channel free ofbarriers for making sure the conveyed messages actually get the chance to reach thereceivers.The fourth step makes it possible for another person to obtain the message. In thisstage, the initiative is transported to the receiver. The message gets lost if there is nodetected function from the receiver’s side.This step involves the decoding of the message for it to become easier to understand.It is obvious that the sender would want the receiver to understand the conveyedmessage in the correct way in which it was meant to. The comprehension situationhappens only in the mind of the receiver. Communication might make people listen,but there is no way that others can understand it if not meant to. It completelydepends on the receiver to choose to understand or not. Several employers overseethis fact when they give orders. They make the mistake that telling someone anythingwould be enough, which is not the case unless there is comprehension.
