Efficient interpersonal communication is a very good quality that helps people in every aspect of life, be it personal or professional. It is the process where a person expresses his thoughts through a well-designed message, sends it across a communication channel (oral, visual, written) and the receiver receives the message and replies via the channel.
Factors that Determine the Efficiency of Communication
The development of rapport will depend on the educational background, social background, family upbringing, and the kind of experiences the person has come across.
Styles of Interpersonal Communication
There are various styles of this form of communication, and that we adopt into our lives depending on how we need it.
Although, this style might prove to be an efficient form of communication during crisis situations, it can intimidate the receiver or the audience and can actually create a communication gap.
However, this style cannot function when the receiver does not have enough knowledge about the required action desired out of him/her.
This style works well when the sender and the receiver are equally interested in carrying the conversation ahead.
This is a style where a person shows complete disinterest to participate in the communication process or carry it forward.
So, we now have a clear idea about effective interpersonal communication, factors that determine its efficiency, and its various styles. Let's use it to our advantage, and reap the benefits.
