GROUP 4 I. Definition: Personal communication is communication to and for one’s self. II. Problem: An employee takes notes in her daily project meetings with other employees from the same company. The project’s deadline is the next day and the employee can not understand what the main objective was from reading her notes because she sat at the far end of the table and wrote in a very general and vague way.

The employee can have notes but they are useless without meaning. The third part to the solution is knowing what to write down. The manager might say one thing which sounds interesting but it might not be even part of the meeting. For example, the manager explains an experience of how he went to another country. The food he ate might be a transition to the concept being taught but might not be included in it. The last part to the solution would be to sit closer to the manager so she can fully comprehend what he says and what he means.
