1.Communication is a process.Communication as a process means it is astep by step activity and it is essentially a two-way process that involves theactive participation of both the sender and receiver. It is the act or processof using words, sounds, signs, or behaviors to express or exchangeinformation or to express your ideas, thoughts, feelings, etc., to someoneelse. Communication is a dynamic process which is influenced by thecommunicator’s mood and thinking.It is a complex process too. By complex process, it means, one messagemay be interpreted in many ways by different people.2.Communication is much more of an ARTthan a science.There is no right orwrong way to communicateno set of absolute rules to be followed butthere are underlying principles to guide us into effective communication.3.Communication has a sender and receiver.Communication occursbetween two or more people acting as the speaker or the receiver of themessage. In other words, it is a two-way process of reaching mutualunderstanding, in which participants do not only exchange (encode-decode) information, news, ideas and feelings but also create and share
6meaning. In general, communication is a means of connecting people orplaces.4.Communication is verbal or non-verbal.Communication can be expressedthrough written or spoken words (verbal) or actions (non-verbal) of bothspoken words and nonverbal actions at the same time. Communication isnot all about sending or receiving facts in words. It does involve ideas andemotions that are expressed through signs, symbols and gestures.5.Communication is inevitable.Inevitability means communication is takingplace even when someone does not want or intend to communicate. This“does not want to communicate” feeling of someone actually doescommunicate something.6.Communication is irreversible.This means that what you have said cannever be unsaid. Irreversibility happens the very minute you click the “OK”button for a comment or post on your social media and that it would betoo late to take it back when a lot of people have already reacted, andcommented to it. The same thing when you perhaps throw a hurting oroffensive word to your enemy because of your anger7.Communication is Unrepeatable.Unrepeatability means that an act ofcommunication can never be duplicated. We may say the same thing overand over again but the effect of what you said the second or third or fourthtime will not be the same asthe first time you said it.
7COMMUNICATION PROCESSThe process of communication refers to the transmission or passage ofinformation or message from the sender through a selected channel to thereceiver overcoming barriers that affect its pace.The process of communication is a cyclic one as it begins with the sender andends with the sender in the form of feedback.
