Communication has aspects of both science and art. There are scientists that study communication and language and the ways that it affects our love lives, our careers, and much more. Solid communication can be taught, just like any other skill.Great communication comes with practice and getting feedback. There are many different types of communication, and unless you're constantly practicing, rehearsing, and fine-tuning it, you'll find that good communication is seen as bad in some cases, and bad communication can work in others.The art part comes with finding your true, authentic voice, and matching it with all the solid rehearsal and science and study that you've done. When this happens, you'll be able to really know almost immediately what type of communication is needed, and be able to shift gears just as quickly.

My personal experience working in retail sales has shown me that following the protocol to achieve sales goals did not always bring the results I was hoping for. I am a person that likes to follow the rules, and when doing so in a sales environment, I still seemed to suffer. I completely failed at selling products and services. I noticed that people who were meeting and exceeding their sales goals have other tactics that bring in consumers. I guess that is what I meant by my earlier post. I lacked the passion for it. I consider having a passion or a knack for sales to be an art.

I like the idea you introduced regarding a chef creatively conveying his or her craft. When I think of creativity, I think of paintings, fashion, song, or dance, etc. but communication can definitely be characterized by creativity, beauty, themes, pictures, and color. Art, in its many forms, is practiced by almost all human cultures and can be regarded as one of the defining characteristics of the human species. In all societies today, the visual arts are intimately intertwined with music, dance, ritual (marking life landmarks, death, religion and politics) and language (poetry, song and story-telling). (Morris-Kay 158) I think this is a good depiction of communication artistically. Dance rituals in certain cultures tell stories passed down throughout generations.

Amber, I can understand your views regarding needing a passion in order to be successful in the retail sales field. Without a true passion behind our work in many times it becomes nearly impossible to be truly innovative. Sister Mary Lauretta stated To be successful, the first thing to do is fall in love with your work.Passion is the difference in a career and a job in my opinion. Also the statement you made about your personality and job traits not meshing up was point on with the teachings we have had this week.

Professor Jones, it is very true clarity is vital to communication. So many times you can think you are depicting a certain message and be received completely different by your audience. I remember telling my daughter to clean her room, much to my dismay once I saw her version of clean I realized I had better clarify very quickly what this meant to her. Though this is a simple day to day example many times what we convey and what we are trying to convey can be lost in translation completely.There can be no assumptions of our audience's understanding,we must CLARIFY lol.
