Who demonstrates competent communication within a particular context?
I feel like my Mother in law demonstrates competent communication with a particular context. She is 62 years old and very old fashion (But in a good way of course) and she speaks very proper. She uses and follows specific words and passages when speaking.
What behaviors does this person exhibit that make him or her effective?
My mother in law uses eye contact when speaking, always has and uses proper posture when communicating. She is always very respectful, a good listener, doesn't ever ininterrupt someone when speaking, never degrades others and will only voice her opinion and/or give advice in a positive manner.
Would you want to model some of your own communication behaviors after this person? Why or why not?
Yes, I would want to model some of my own communication behaviors after my mother in law. She is a great role model and is such a wonderful and positive influence in so many ways but especially when it comes to communication. I do and have modeled some of her communication behaviors before and continue to do so. She has made an impact in my life, especially when it comes to communication. I used to be very afraid to talk on the phone for many reasons. She got me liking to talk on the phone and now I'm comfortable using it thanks to her. I no longer have fears of talking to people on the phone. That's HUGE for me. I look forward to learning so much more from her and whatever I do learn communication wise I plan to share it with my friends and colleagues! :-)
