This week, you learned about organizational communication. Communication is essential for any organization to work toward a shared purpose and achieve success. Examples of an organization include a workplace, a community or religious organization, a volunteer organization, or a family. Some components of effective organizational communication include seeking and responding to feedback, establishing consistent channels of communication, conflict resolution, and crisis planning.
