Sample text

Without sustained, vigorous communication among citizens, democracy fails. 2. Communication skills are especially important for effective interaction in our era, which is characterized by social diversity. In pluralistic cultures such as ours, we need to understand people who communicate differently from us. We also need to understand diverse kinds of families and communities and the ways that all of them are sustained. Friendships and workplace relationships between people with different cultural backgrounds enlarge perspective and appreciation of the range of human values and viewpoints (Bernard, 2004).

In short, communication skills are vital to personal and professional well-being and to the health of our communities and society. Because you’ve been communicating all your life, you might ask why you need to study communication formally. One good reason is that formal study can improve skill. Some people have a natural talent for music or athletics. Yet they can become even better musicians or athletes if they take voice lessons or study theories of offensive and defensive play. Likewise, even if you communicate well now, learning about communication can make you more effective.

People interact differently in a living room and on a beach, and we may be more alert at certain times of day than at others. The history of a system also affects communication. If a workplace team has a history of listening sensitively and working out problems constructively, then when someone says, “There’s something we need to talk about,” the others are unlikely to become defensive. Conversely, if the team has a record of nasty conflicts and bickering, the same comment might arouse strong defensiveness.
