Re Making Communication at Work Book Excerpt:

Almost 400 years ago philosophers John Locke and David Hume implicitly defined communication as a tool for the transmission of pure ideas, stating that the ideas themselves are what matter, not the way in which they are expressed and exchanged. Now known as the transmission model, this form of communication is still the foundation for academic courses in communication theory and practice, and is embedded in most business literature and education that address subjects related to workplace communication, organization behavior and culture, leadership, and conflict resolution. But what if this accepted model of communication was incomplete? Re-Making Communication at Work argues that the transmission model of communication needs to be replaced by a new approach to communication. Sostrin challenges the status quo by exposing the most common myths that inaccurately define successful communication at work. These misperceptions are replaced by a set of core principles that deliver a clear mandate for re-making communication at work. Sostrin not only provides the theoretical foundation for this new approach, but he uses a straightforward model and exercises that demonstrate how managers, students, and consultants can powerfully improve relationships, decision-making, and collaboration with a few lines and circles.

The Work and Workings of Human Communication Book Excerpt:

Discover the fundamentals of human communication with this comprehensive and insightful resource Written in four sections, The Work and Workings of Human Communication identifies the underlying fundamentals that make our communication distinctively human. These fundamentals are the common ground that tie together the many topics and subject matters covered by the study and discipline of communication. They are also the basis of the unique contribution of the communication discipline to the social sciences. Professor, researcher and theorist Robert E. Sanders starts by focusing on what is unique about human communication and moves on to an examination of the complexities of scientific inquiry in the social sciences in general and in the communication discipline specifically. At the heart of the matter is the fact that humans are thinking beings who can make choices and therefore are not entirely predictable. This points towards new topics and questions that are likely to arise as the discipline evolves. Sanders’ approach leads to recognition of the fact that communication is at the center of how humans build our ways of life and participate together. By focusing on the underlying fundamentals that give rise to the discipline’s topics and subject areas, The Work and Workings of Human Communication encourages students to engage in independent thought about what they want to contribute by: Emphasizing the importance of communication in creating, sustaining or changing—and participating in—our ways of life on an interpersonal level and on a societal level Recognizing that human communication is inherently collaborative; people affect situations by interacting with others, not acting on others Explaining the history, current agendas and possible future of the social science side of the Communication discipline A perfect resource for new graduate students in introductory communication courses who have an interest in the social science side of the discipline, The Work and Workings of Human Communication is also highly valuable for undergraduate communication and liberal arts students who don’t possess a background in the discipline.

Talking Business Making Communication Work Book Excerpt:

Internal communication is a growing field with the number of specialists increasing worldwide. In spite of this, and vast increases in spending on communication, research shows that organizations are finding it difficult to raise the number of employees who feel well informed. Now, more than ever, internal communication does not just concern communication managers. In today's lean organizations line managers are taking on more and more of the burden of employee communication and managers of remote offices have to be their own communication managers. 'Talking Business: making communication work' addresses the key issues in communication within organizations, supported by case studies taken from experience of working with global businesses. It provides a coherent theory of business communication and shows how a radical difference to communication practice and business performance can be made. The authors employ an interactive structure throughout with signposts to link related cases and chapters.

Communication Advocacy and Work Family Balance Book Excerpt:

This book presents an understanding of work-family balance for working adults belonging to a number of different family structures (e.g. single and/or childfree adults, LGBT couples, families with female breadwinners). It contends that family structure should serve as a way of thinking about diversity (i.e., race, gender, age, family) in the U.S. workplace. It also argues that—in addition to accommodations occurring through workplace policy—the negotiation of work-family balance happens as a result of self-advocacy that occurs in everyday communication about family at work. Relaying the stories of a number of different working adults belonging to a variety of different family structures, it explores the range of obstacles faced in the attempt at balancing work and family life, generates informed ideas for eliminating barriers commonly experienced in balancing work and family, and problematizes enduring assumptions regarding gender roles and the myth of steadfast public and private spheres.

Communication in Social Work Book Excerpt:

Communication in Social Work focuses on the role of communication in social work. This book discusses aspects of communication in the helping process and illustrates where information and advice on their own would not have been helpful to the client. Comprised of seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the nature of communication and explains why a study of the communication process may help in dealing with serious problems of the environment and human relations. Attention then turns to communication processes in social work, with emphasis on the role of non-verbal behavior in the interaction between social worker and client, along with the factors that influence communication between them. The chapters that follow focus on social factors in communication, considering the sociological view of social work as a mechanism of social control, as well as the importance of communication in the helping process. This book concludes by explaining how social agency contributes to the nature of the social worker's activities, touching on topics such as problems of cooperation and coordination in social welfare. This text will be of interest to professionals and policymakers involved in social work.

Communication Work Book Excerpt:

"Communication @ Work" teaches students to produce ethical, effective, and expressive communication in the workplace by presenting practical skills and applications, and by challenging students to communicate imaginatively in their future careers. The user-friendly material is current, engaging, and based on sound research extending from both the communication and social science fields. In addition, much of the complex theory students find so difficult to understand is explained in clear, practical ways, helping students to develop the skills they will need to succeed in the workplace. Features"Reality @ Work" boxes offer real and hypothetical examples designed to introduce theory and practice in realistic and ever-changing workplaces. Flexible organization allows instructors to customize the sequence of core material to their needs, tailoring the amount of focus they want on small group/team and presentational speaking. Provides extensive coverage of presenting in both formal and informal settings. "Quick Start" chapters on informative and persuasive speaking give students the basic skills they need for effective speaking; followed by more in-depth coverage for those students interested in more advanced concepts and techniques. "Contemporary Voices" features three popular speakers and writers who reflect contemporary communication scholarship: Peter Senge on learning organizations, Daniel Goleman on emotional intelligence, and Stephen Covey on principled leadership with effective habits. Solid coverage is supported with lively, up-to-date examples that will resonate with students. Chapter-end activities provide students with an opportunity to focus on technology, teamwork, ethics, writing, and speaking. Praise for "Communication @ Work" "[The] references are cutting-edge and current. It sets the tone well for the primary focus of business communication, and allows students to pull in and relate their more specialized knowledge of theoretical concepts in business and organizational behavior, to focus specifically on the challenges of communication in contemporary organizations." --"Mary L. Mohan, SUNY Geneseo" "I have really enjoyed the comprehensiveness of this text. It combines the in-depth techniques of a handbook with the pedagogy of a successful textbook. . .[and] presents a synergy of research and information from multiple disciplines that contributes to successful oral communication." --"Thomas J. Healy, Salem State College" "My experience has been that most textbooks are dry and the students struggle to get through the course material. This book, however, does a very nice job of integration theory/concepts and application to workplace settings." --"Tina M. Harris, University of Georgia"
