For this assignment you will be required to:

  • Referring to Bevan and Sole in Chapter 1 (see section 1.4  specifically), explain two basic principles of competent/effective  interpersonal communication. These include taking responsibility for  your behavior, sharing meaning, acknowledging your view is only one,  respecting others and yourself, and practicing being a competent  communicator.
  • Describe an instance of miscommunication that illustrates one or  more of these principles. If absolutely necessary, you can use a  hypothetical exchange. Be sure to give precise details so it is clear  what went wrong.
  • Identify one or more barrier that caused this miscommunication. To  give you some examples, it can be things like culture, ideas of the  self, or various types of noise that disrupted the receipt of the  message.
  • Explain how the barrier(s) interrupted the process of successful  communication and how these barriers can be overcome based on what  you’ve learned in this course.
