Communication- is the process of sharing information, thoughts, or feelings. To be an effective communicator one must master the skills of using “I” messages,active listening, assertiveness, and using appropriate body language.
“I” message expresses your feelings, but does not blame or judge the other person. Using an “I” message helps open the lines of communication
Active Listening-is focusing your full attention on what the other person is saying and letting that person know you understand and care. Read the examples on page 137 on how to become an active listener.
People express their opinions and feelings in three ways: 1-Passive- holding back and going along with what is being said. Lack of respect for yourself. 2-Aggressive-communicating in a way that is threatening or disrespectfully. Lack of respect for others. 3-Assertive-standing up for yourself in way that doesn’t threaten the other person. Respect for both yourself and others. Go to PHSchool.com Code: ctd-2061
