About Lesson

Think back to what you learnt about communication as a two-way process. Often, we need to take follow-up action (either directly related to the initial communication or as a result of the communication). This might be to:

  • *provide additional information to supplement initial communication
  • *clarify issues that were ambiguous in the original communication
  • *correct errors in communications
  • *sign a document or prepare one for signing
  • *re-draft or revise communication materials
  • *provide the information in another format or using another channel, method or medium
  • *undertake an activity specified in the communication, for example:
  • *meet with others
  • *provide resources
  • *perform a task
