The Multidimensional Communication Process: A Communication Paradigm for the 21st Century.
Waner, Karen K.; Winter, Janet K.
Effective communication and the human element are receiving increased emphasis during the 1990s. The communication process is a complex, foundational component within organizations, especially where participative management is practiced. Several models have been developed to describe the communication process; however, few models adequately depict the continuous multi-directional communication process and the effect of the participants' environments on the communication that occurs. The proposed Multidimensional Communication Paradigm displays the all-encompassing process. By understanding the many facets of the communication process, students and business workers can develop skills that not only improve communication, but also promote moral values and satisfaction in employees. (A figure illustrating the Multidimensional Communication Paradigm is included. Contains 14 references. (Author/RS)
