Debugging communication

How does communication work? How can we break it down into segments or steps? What problems occur in each "step"? How to fix this?

A lot of issues on projects haappen due to bad communication. However, it is tricky to determine exactly when, where and why this happens.

In this talk I would like to break communication down into 4 main steps and analyze problems that occur between each of them:

  1. What your idea you wish to say is
  2. What you actually say
  3. What the other person actually hears / reads
  4. What the other person walks away with

I would also like to offer practical advice how to make sure you get your message across throughout this communication process.
