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. The sender may mean one thing while the listener interprets it as another.
