Communication Needs & Digital Age Communication
Order Description
Communication Needs
If we consider that our most important biological imperatives (e.g., breathing, eating, sleeping) are the things that we do or are required to do most frequently, communication may be among the most important human activities. We are communicating constantly. For this dialogue session, identify a reason “why” humans need to communicate. For the reason that you identify, provide an example. Additionally, discuss the reasons to communicate within an organizational context. In other words, how does membership in an organization help a person to satisfy the need or reason to communicate? How might membership in an organization prevent satisfaction of a particular need or reason to communicate? What are the implications for effective leadership? What are the implications for organizational behavior?
Digital Age Communication
In the digital age, new channels for communication have developed that simply did not exist a few decades ago. Cell phones, e-mail, texting, Twittering…who knows what might develop next. However, various channels for communication are not always the best choice for different types of messages or communication needs. When should different communication channels be used? When should they be avoided? Can you provide an example from your organization when choice of the wrong channel had detrimental effects? What advantages are there to new digital technology forms? What are the disadvantages?
