I need help with a Communications question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
That being said, below is an activity designed to get you to think about some of the “communication climates” in your own relationships”. Read the questions below and respond with a few sentences answering each of the questions. You will have until next Wednesday, May 13th at 11:59pm to complete the activity.
1. Identify the communication climate of an important interpersonal relationship using weather metaphors like “sunny, gloomy, rainy, calm, etc.
2. List the communication that created and now maintains that “climate”. List both verbal and non-verbal messages like “complimenting one another”, “listening to each other”, “arguing a lot”, etc.
3. Describe what you can do to either maintain the climate (if it is positive) or to improve the climate (if it is negative). Again, think about verbal and nonverbal messages like “asking more questions”, “making more eye contact”, “less interrupting”, “more smiling”, etc.
