There are several elements included in the communication process. First, there is the sender who forms a verbal or non-verbal message. This message could be an idea, a thought, an opinion, or a feeling. The message is transmitted through a medium (channel) to the receiver. Communication channels can be face-to-face conversations, phone calls, email, social media, etc. The receiver who gets the message gives meaning to it, and he/she provides feedback to it. During the communication process barriers may be encountered such as noise, distance, language, etc.
