This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

The eight essential components of communication is, source, message, channel, receiver, feedback, environment, context, and interferences. I was working as an intern over the summer for a large company, I have not been in that setting before. The work environment was different; I have never worked for an IT firm before. This company had a large cafeteria in there building. The sources of the message where from colleges and managers. I had to construct what they were telling me to do by understating their body language and voice of tone. The meanings which were negotiated to me were commands. Do this, do that. As a receiver you listen, see, touch, smell, and/or tase to receive a message. Almost all conversations had feedback. If I did not understand or needed a different perceptive my feedback would help clarify their meaning.
