Communication and Conflict What is Communication?  |  The Communication Process  |  Organizational Communication   Conflict  |  Self-Test   What is Communication? Communication is the process by which information is exchanged and understood by two or more people,  usually with the intent to influence or motivate behavior. Communication can also be defined as the  process of interaction through which meaning is shared, consciously or unconsciously, verbally or  nonverbally, with another. Nonverbal communication is an important part of communication media, and it  can be more powerful than words or voice. In some instances, nonverbal communication can completely  change the meaning of words.  The Communication Process Figure 1: The Communication Process and possible sources of noise.

    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.
