The Communication Process
Components of Communication
1. Source (the sender)—person attempting to send a message
to another person. Authority and experience of sender can
call attention to message.
2. Message—a purpose or idea to be conveyed. Clarity,
complexity, length, and organization affect reception of
message.
3. Channel (medium)—how and through what media the
message is conveyed to the receiver.
4. Receiver—the party to whom the message is sent must get
and understand properly the message for communication
to take place.

how messages are transmitted and understood.

relations distractions in the
environment can disrupt the
communication process.
