Question and answer
identify a range of communication methods and aids to support individuals to communicate
Verbal communication is simply speaking. When you use verbal communication, be aware of your tone of voice, speed, and inflection. Avoid sarcasm or angry tones, as they can put the people you are speaking with on the defensive. [ When speaking to a group or your team, make sure you speak loudly and clearly so everyone can understand you. Arrange for a microphone if you are addressing a group in
a large room. Verbal communication is best when you need to discuss something in detail, or when complimenting or reprimanding someone. Written communication is the most appropriate when detailed instructions are required, when something needs to be documented, or when the person is too far away to easily speak with over the phone or in person. Email is a lifesaver for many people, especially in the business world. If you rely on emails and memos to conduct your business, it's very important to portray a professional image. Don't use abbreviations unless they pertain to your field, and always use spell check and read over your email before you send it to make sure it's clear and concise. Emails should be brief and to the point. Non-verbal communication plays a large role in the way you communicate with others. Unless you're using sign language, however, you probably don't want to rely on it as your sole means of communication. You do, however, need to be aware of it. Your gestures, eye contact and movement, and the way you stand and sit all convey a message to the person you are communicating with. Use gestures appropriately, or leave your hands at your sides. Don't fidget, which is distracting, and avoid crossing your arms, which sends off the appearance of being angry or closed off. Always look the person you are speaking to in the eye, and don't roll your eyes or stare while they talk. ]
