3 EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION IN BUSINESS Culture and technology have a great impact on effective communication. For instance, people from different cultures perceive information and communicate with different languages leading to language barrier (Samovar et al, 2015). On the other hand, the level of technology determines the effectiveness of communication between the managers and the workforce within the organization (Quirke, 2017). How would you deal with communicating effectively in your workplace environment where there may be a cultural barrier? Goetsch & Davis (2014) states that it is important as a manager to first know the cultural barriers in the members of the organization and know what they value or dislike. After knowing the cultural differences within the members, the manager should know how the differences are relevant to the job and accommodate them. A simple language which is understood by everybody should also be used within the organization and cross-cultural training should be put in place to eradicate the cultural barriers among the employees (Goetsch & Davis, 2014). What are some of the communication problems you have in the workplace and how would you improve them? Self-editing and use of wrong communication tool are the serious problems encountered in the workplace. People should ensure that they go through the message they are sending to other members to ensure that it is well framed and contain a good tone. Again, right tools for sending information should be utilized depending on the message. An email is an effective tool when sending non-sensitive information while sensitive information requires personal contact (Shockley-Zalabak, 2014).

    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.
