As soon as a child is born communication starts. Some scientists argue that communication starts even before a human is born. However, without communication we would be lost, communication is an essential part of our life. In our society there are different types of communications; for instance the way we talk to friends is different compared to how we talk to our boss or people of influence. We exchange words in different tones to family and friends, the communication is more casual. When we use communication in school, at work, or in other professional settings, the word choices change to a more professional standard and a person becomes more articulate. Personal communication differentiates greatly from professional communication, especially in health care settings.
According to Cheesebro, et al. (2010) communication does not just consists of words, it is more like a process broken down into separate parts. Sending, receiving, and encoding messages, which happens simultaneously and then the process of decoding and giving feedback. Channel is described as in how the information is transmitted. This can be done via face to face, phone, mail, email, or chat and text. Through communication a person doesn’t just exchange words, the individual also expresses what he or she needs, wants, or implies. Moreover, communication also consists of gestures, mimics of the face, and other emotions a person expresses while conversing. Cheesebro talks about John Francis Ph. D. a person who committed himself to silence for 17 years. Francis only communicated through nonverbal interactions and listening. While silence, he earned his master’s degree and Ph.D. and founded a nonprofit organization. Ultimately, his way of conversing proved, communication is unavoidable and always present. The way Francis lived for over 17 years shows how basic elements of communication can be incorporated in effective communication Cheesebro, et al. (2010).
