BUAD 304 Professor Cummings TA: Zheying Wu February 4, 2006 Assignment #2 Chapter 10 Critical Thinking 1, 2, 4 1. “Ineffective communication is the fault of the sender.” Do you agree or disagree? Discuss. “Ineffective communication is the fault of the sender.” This question can be argued on both sides. Usually it is the listener who believes that ineffective communication is at fault of the sender and the sender believes that ineffective communication is at fault of the listener. Although the sender may believe that the listener may either jump to conclusions, “hear what they want to hear,” or do not ask to clarify when they do not understand, I believe that most ineffective communication is at the fault of the sender. The sender may assume that the listener may adequately understand the material being discussed. The sender may use words or examples unfamiliar to the listener and therefore incoherent. The sender will continue to talk when the listener is distracted and the message is not fully relayed. Words can have different meanings to different people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
