EFFECTS OF COMMUNICATION

By

VIKRAM KARVE

 

Why do you speak…?

The aim of any communication is to produce a desired effect on the audience.  Communication is a stimulus and the effect of communication is the response we elicit from the recipient of our communication.

So before you speak, you must ask yourself: “What effect will my words have on the person(s) to whom I am speaking…?”

You must be clear in your mind what outcome you want to achieve and ask yourself: “How can I bring about the desired effect in the person I am communicating with…? What do I need to say…? What style should I adopt…?”

Given below are various effects a communication can produce in the audience, outcomes which you as a speaker can create in a listener, intentionally, or unintentionally, if you are not careful. You may intend to sympathize with someone but she may think you are patronizing her. You may want to humour someone and land up humiliating or insulting him. Unintentional lapses in communication may result in negative outcomes in the audience. Converely you may want to confuse your audience and end up educating them…!

 

A FEW COMMUNICATION EFFECTS (STIMULUS and RESPONSE)

Impress

Irritate

Dissuade

Flatter

Humour

Entertain

Whether it is public speaking or interpersonal communication, make sure you have a definite intention and clear about the communication effect you want to achieve in the audience before you speak rather than create an unpredictable effect on the listener by default.

And if you do not want to have any effect on a person (or to cause any change in their understanding, beliefs, feelings or behaviour) then it is best to remain silent. Why indulge in aimless communication…? Why speak if you have nothing to say…?
