Evaluating Business Communication

For this evaluation I choose the financial report of JJJ Company and after reviewing the report a can conclude that when it comes to the transmission of the message, this report conveys a clear message: do not acquire JJJ Company, the report was clear and to the point.
Because of the nature of the information presented (graphics and numbers) I do not consider that any other type of communication would had been as effective as a financial report; a memo can provide information regarding why not to move forward with the acquisition, however the level of detail and the use of graphics is not found in the memo, the same would go with an email or a letter, that is way I think that the financial report was the right choice to present this information.
Being the audience the CEO of the company, he require facts represented by numbers and graphics, however they need to be presented in a clear matter so the information can be understood clearly and any questions that the CEO might have are answered; this report presented simple yet clear facts on why not to move with the acquisition, and using the information presented the CEO should be able to move make a conscience decision regarding the acquisition.
In order to improve this report I consider that the wording should be review, although the financial report is clear I would make sure to avoid phrases like “huge risk” I would have said considerable risk. The report used appropriate jargon and kept a good level of professionalism.
This report talks about the financial health of a business, and only a handful of people should be aware of this information, and because of that confidentiality is important, sheering this information with outside people could potentially damage the…...

Communication can best be summarized as the transmission of a message from a sender to a receiver in an understandable manner. The importance of effective communication is immeasurable in the world of business and in personal life. From a business perspective, effective communication is an absolute must, because it commonly accounts for the difference between success and failure or profit and loss. It has become clear that effective business communication is critical to the successful operation of modern enterprise. Every business person needs to understand the fundamentals of effective communication. Communication is a dialogue not a monologue.

I need to know how I could better assist a client but using different techniques to better assist. Getting to know the clients past and present situation would be a good start. I would need to know what they feel like they need the most help with. I will start with Children that I would be assisting. The approach I would use for a child would be the Behavior Therapy Approach and focusing on using my patients knowing children may not understand their situation. Using direct and active problem solving to help with new skills. Working with Women I would definitely need to know their past behaviors and any issues. Issues like abuse or drug issues are just a few items named to discuss. Better to say this as psychoanalytic therapy and using listening as an approach. Elderly people I would focus on humanistic approach while using Acceptance so I can accept who they have become and their past life and current struggles. Lastly for homeless clients I would focus on Humanistic approach while using empathy. I feel any individuals that are living in a shelter if that, need empathy. They also need listening and communication feedback. I believe this could help get them back on track and encourage them to strive and work for a better future. All of......

I recently participated in a team project where we were instructed to send communiqués to four audiences based on the purpose of the communiqué and the receiving audience while projecting the senders leadership style; for the following I will be evaluating the four communiqués my team submitted. In the communiqué sent to the CEO of Riordan Manufacturing, John, the accounting manager, was to advise the CEO of the financial instability of JJJ Company and recommend not moving forward with the acquisition. For this communiqué our team collectively agreed that a formal memo would be the best communication for the audience and purpose, I stand by this decision. The memo was a more formal approach as it was intended for the CEO, which showcased his leadership style more direct and to the point. The structure and layout of the memo was assembled with less of a personal feel as is seen common in e-mails or text to a coworker. The information conveyed in the memo was factual pertaining to the purpose of the memo in regard to the financial instability of JJJ Company. I do not think this memo shared too much or too...

In addition to the multicultural aspect, the agency also serves children, women, the elderly, and the homeless. Your manager has asked you to decide the best communication approach for each of these clients. About the Clients In the human services profession it is becoming increasingly more important to know and understand the different cultures and their beliefs. When it comes to communicating effectively with people from different cultures, it can be of great help if you first understand the social and psychological forces that drive their verbal and non-verbal behavior. It is important to encompass skills like warmth, authenticity, empathy, permissiveness, and acceptance. Effective Strategies and Techniques Empathy refers to the ability to understand someone else’s point of view and ideas.

Evaluating Communication Techniques

...Evaluating Communication Techniques Introduction Organizational leaders are continually searching for new and easier methods of communicating with their stakeholders. Any evaluation of communication techniques should include information about where we have been on the technological time line, where we are now, and the future of communication techniques. There was a time, not so long ago, that land line telephones were the norm and pagers were the ‘techy’ devices that all business people must have. Pagers sent an alarm to the device as an alert that someone was trying to call. Imagine the frustration of being in your car and suddenly having an emergency ‘page’. There were no cell phones during the time of the pager, so the only option was to seek out a pay phone. That scenario sounds archaic today. Shortly afterwards, we had an amazing revolution in technology with the cellular telephone. Business people could finally communicate with peers and customers, no matter where they were located. Naturally, the internet and the abundance of information that it provides, is among the greatest advances of our lifetimes. But, technology is still evolving and the future promises to hold many more time saving marvels as technology evolves all around us. We must be prepared and ready to adapt to the changes that are coming our way. Business and management practices also evolve to keep up with the technological advances. The Importance of Managerial Ethics in Business...
