After last week’s class we are aware of the direct and indirect approach of communication. This article clearly identifies the difference between them and how both methods can be effective. It also states when these two methods should be used as it “can make all the difference in your interactions. There is an appropriate time and place for each one of these communication styles.” Direct communication can be good when telling people to complete certain tasks whereas the indirect approach can be effective when breaking bad news to someone.
Following the guidelines in this article and information from class you can apply these methods to figure out which one works best for you.
