QXD 26/5/05 12:37 pm Page 9 Unit 1 Business communication basics 9 SUMMARY OF COMMUNICATION CHOICES Use oral channels when: • your message is fairly simple • you need an immediate response • you don’t need a permanent record • you want to encourage interaction in problem-solving or decision-making • you need to read the recipient’s body language • you need to hear the tone of your recipient’s response • your message has an emotional factor. Use written channels when: • your message is fairly detailed or requires careful planning • you don’t need an immediate response • you need a permanent, written record • you have a big, widespread audience • you want to minimise the distortion that often occurs when messages are passed orally from person to person • you don’t need immediate interaction with your audience • your message has no emotional factor.

When explaining the options, keep them logical – state the action first and then the key to press.

A message pad like the one shown overleaf provides headings which act as a reminder to obtain the necessary information from the caller. When taking messages, remember that the caller cannot see you. You will need to give verbal signals to know that the message is being understood.
