you cannot not communicate expresses which principle of communication

Blake and McCanse's LEADERSHIP GRID: categorizes leaders across two dimensions- concern for people and concern for production. IMPOVERISHED MANAGEMENT: low concern for people and low concern for production. Do the absolute minimum; are withdrawn from subordinates, make decisions based on what is easy or expedient. COUNTRY CLUB MANAGEMENT: high concern for others and low concern for production. More concerned with interpersonal harmony. They avoid confrontations and favor harmony. Make decisions based on what is best for their followers and what will best maintain social harmony. AUTHORITY-COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT: low concern for people and high concern for production. Accomplishment of the mission is more important than the well-being of the group members, subordinates are vechicles for a task, mostly communicate instructions, make decisions based on what will get results. TEAM MANAGEMENT: high concern for others, high concern for production. Place duel priority on getting the job done and the welfare of their subordinates; believe that task and social requirements can both be supportive in doing a good job and facilitate team development/foster harmonious working relationships.


Use both desire for results and concern for subordinates when making a decision. MIDDLE-OF-THE-ROAD MANAGEMENT: have moderate concern for others and a moderate amount of concern for production. Usually compromisers/ balancers. Seek acceptable judicious levels of task accomplishment and place a moderate amount of concern on the interests of their followers. TRANSACTIONAL LEADER: uses a system of rewards and punishments to exert influence over others. Loose influence when they loose rewards/penalties. Make decisions based on desires to accomplish and the leader's ability to offer a salient reward/punishment to secure compliance. TRANFORMATIONAL LEADER: gains influence through a process that appeals the the followers beliefs or values. Are good communicators who inspire their followers with a vision, have charismatic abilities. Considered to be change agents who can implement innovations and have fierce loyalty. -both can happen at different times, both have certain times that they are most appropriate.


SITUATIONAL LEADERSHIP THEORY: matches appropriate leader behaviors based on the readiness level of followers. Readiness can be characterized by 2 variables: ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS. Uses their follower's readiness to use either a DIRECTIVE or SUPPORTIVE leadership style. CONTINGENCY THEORY: (Fiedler's c-theory) leaders are more fixed in their leadership styles; the right type of leaders should be picked for a particular situation or the situation should be modified. Determines if the leader is task-oriented or people oriented using the LEAST-PREFERRED COWORKER (LPC) SCALE to see what they are based on the people the work the least well with. High LPC= relationship-oriented and low LPC (task-oriented). To find best situation for the leader it looks at:
Communication is all around us, but not many of us take the time to truly analyze and understand what effects our communication has on others and on ourselves! P This video outlines one of the common axioms of the communication field, and discusses how what you aren t saying is sometimes just as important as what you are saying.


WHAT COMMUNICATION QUESTIONS DOES THIS VIDEO ANSWER? g How can I be a more effective communicator? g Why does saying nothing sometimes get me in trouble? g Is it possible to not communicate? g How does my lack of communicate influence how others think of me? g Why is it important to understand communication? Communication is everywhere, but do you know how to effectively communicate? My name is Jill Schiefelbein with Impromptu Guru and these 60 second videos will help you communicate well. Communication has been around since human beings were created, but as a discipline it came to prominence around the 1960s. Three theorists by the names of Watzlawick, Beavin, and Jackson created five axioms of human communication and the first axiom has gained prominence in all different fields. The axiom states that one cannot not communicate. Let me repeat that again. One cannot not communicate. What that means is even when you re not actively sending a message, even when words are not coming out of your mouth, coming across the keyboard from your typing, or being texted you re still communicating.


Let me give you an example. Let s say youre fostering a relationship with a potential client or a new client and you haven t touched base with them in a couple of weeks. That non-communication over that couple of weeks sends a message. So, is it the message you want to be sending? It s important to be cognizant of that because one cannot not communicate means that what you re doing, active communication or not, you re still sending a message and that s important for you to know.
