This can result in unintended conflict and misunderstanding, which can be unfavorable to a relationship pending the situation. This is why it is necessary to understand the various methods of interpersonal communication and how miscommunication can occur. Oral
• In the process of encoding and decoding (communicating), “noise” occurs. “For true communication to take place, the receiver has to be able to decode the message the way the encoder wants to be understood” (p. 90). Both, encoder and the decoder, need to take the time to ensure a message has been correctly decoded. • It is important to understand methods of communication and inhibitors to decoding. o Vernacular use and inflection are two common hindrances to verbal communication.

Both competent and intercultural communicators the same concept as to how to communicate effectively, but different methods to do it correctly. In conclusion, there are similarities and differences that can make effect the way you communicate as a competent and intercultural communicator. As a competent communicator you can have things effect your communication such as noise and environment, and as an intercultural communicator high and low context can affect your communication. They also have similarities such as having the goal to make you become a better communicator no matter the situation.
And finally, the environment must be considered when communication takes place. Barriers to effective communication prevent people from transmitting information clearly and rapidly (Wallace, 2009). These barriers may also prevent the other party from receiving the intended message. One surefire method that sees that the intended message is received is through the use of feedback. Reference: Wallace, H., & Roberson, C. (2009).
Introduction In this essay, I will be discussing ways in which cross-cultural conflict may arise, and ways to overcome these communication barriers. Effective communication between people of the same cultural background is complex and challenging at the best of times. Trying to understand and have good, effective communication between people from different cultural backgrounds is even more challenging. When counsellors engage with clients from different culture backgrounds, there can often be misunderstandings that occur through misinterpreting a certain cultural norm that is prevalent in one’s culture but is not in the others. In doing so, this could lead to a breakdown in communication between the client and the counsellor and ultimately affect the outcome of the healing process.
Some parties might be trying to save face and that is why they are not being honest or telling the truth. Parties could be dealing with the tensions of connectedness and separateness, certainty and uncertainty, or even openness and closedness. The parties’ conflict styles could be avoiding, accommodating, competing, collaborating or compromising. It is important for mediators to be aware of all these different concepts and theories that can affect mediation. Through a thorough examination of conflict management styles, Face Negotiation Theory, and Relational Dialectics Theory it will be shown how important these theories and concepts are to effective mediation.
This starting point must be verified, and then the process must move forward using a combination of Aristotelian logic, further observations and third-party information. Whenever observations or third-party knowledge is used, it must be verified carefully before proceeding. This process seems satisfactory, yet is much more complicated than it reveals on its skin. To further clarify the issue, some of the terms that have just been thrown around must be more specifically defined for their context. What is Aristotelian logic?
First we must take the time to listen to the problem or idea they have. In some cases this will be enough to show the value you place in them. Next we must put ourselves in their position to get some idea of where the feelings are coming from. Next their needs to be some attempt to find an outlet for those feelings if needed. This solution or outlet will be important if the act of listening and valuing is not enough to assist the individual in their issues.
Police officers using excessive force is preventable when the situation can be handled much differently. Is excessive force really necessary or could less aggressive still get the same result when handling the situation? The answer to this question can be difficult to determine. It is important that police use force is some situations but to what extent and when is the issue that is being challenged.

However, if objective criteria is introduced, then mutual consensus is more likely to arise and relationships between the parties will remain cordial. Objective standards must be practical, scientific and fair. Also, the standards must be accepted by all concerned parties. In order to discuss objective criteria with the other party, the application of following points is necessary: 1.
