4 1.2 b) The trainee needs to choose four components of verbal communication and describe how they apply to effective communication. Note: The trainee has the following information and sample answer in their assessment to help guide them. Effective verbal communication is essential in a tourism workplace. The way you speak to people will depend on the situation you are in, and in a work situation it is important to use language that is suitable for the company you represent. Your customers will also have expectations about how you should communicate with them. Sample answer: Grammar Use of grammar refers to the rules by which words are used and put together to form sentences. It is important to use correct grammar when speaking with customers otherwise it could cause confusion. Using the correct grammar will make things nice and clear for the customer and it will also give them more confidence in your abilities. The trainee must describe how four components of verbal communication apply to effective communication. Components of verbal communication may include: Clarity of speech Articulation Listening skills Voice projection Voice modulation Questioning skills Feedback Other (please specify) The trainee s answers will vary. Assessor sample answers: Voice modulation This is when you change the tone of your voice. It is important to vary your tone when talking with customers as it shows you are interested in them and it will prevent your voice from sounding monotone and boring which will not be engaging for the customer. Varying your tone will help establish a good rapport. Voice projection You need to make sure you project your voice appropriate to the situation, this means not speaking too softly so that people are straining to hear you, or too loudly otherwise they will feel like you are shouting at them. When you project your voice at the right level it usually installs confidence and often gives more credibility to what you are saying. Edition 2 Published June 2012 Page 4 of 22

5 1.3 c) The trainee needs to choose three components of non-verbal communication and describe how they apply to effective communication. Note: The trainee has the following information in their assessment to help guide them. Effective non-verbal communication is communication without words or sounds. It includes your body language, facial expressions, posture, how closed or open you are physically, your level of eye contact, your gestures, as well as your style of dress and the personal space you keep around you. Non-verbal communication is a critical part of communication and it is always important to remember the saying actions speak louder than words. Assessor sample answers: Body language Body language is an important part of effective communication, it is important your body language matches what you are saying and how you are saying it otherwise it could become a barrier to communication. Displaying positive / appropriate body language will help establish rapport with the person or people you are communicating with. Use of silence When used correctly, the use of silence in communication can be very effective. Depending on the situation it is at times useful to remain silent in order to give the other person time to think or express what they are trying to say. Using silence appropriately will show you are attentive, prepared to listen and that you are not rushing the person you are communicating with. The trainee must describe how three components of non-verbal communication apply to effective communication. Components of non-verbal communication may include: Body language Posture Use of silence Facial expressions Eye contact Personal space Gestures Other (please specify) The trainee s answers will vary. Edition 2 Published June 2012 Page 5 of 22

6 1.4 d) The trainee needs to describe barriers to effective communication in a variety of tourism workplace scenarios. There are three scenarios. For each scenario the trainee needs to describe three barriers to effective communication. Note: The trainee has the following information in their assessment to help guide them. Barriers to effective communication are those things that will interfere with the communication process and result in the sender and receiver misunderstanding each other, or simply make communication difficult. Assessor sample answers: Scenario 1 Barrier 1: Organisational There are normally three people who work in the Visitor Centre but with one person away sick and the other colleague out at lunch the staff shortage over the busy lunch time has created an organisational barrier. Barrier 2: Personal The personal barrier is a direct result of the remaining staff member feeling tired as well as stressed due to being short staffed. Barrier 3: Physical There are several physical barriers: the child running around playing with the displays and yelling when his mother tries to make him stop; the phone ringing every few minutes; and the courier. All of these are a distraction and will have an impact on communication. The staff member will be struggling to focus. The trainee must describe three barriers to effective communication for each scenario. Barriers to effective communication may include: Cultural differences Stereotyping Not listening actively Physical Personal Non-verbal communication Age differences Educational differences Voice modulation and articulation Organisational Word Choice The trainee s answers will vary. Edition 2 Published June 2012 Page 6 of 22

7 Scenario 2 See previous page for. Barrier 1: Age differences The age differences between the Japanese couple and Sean could be a barrier to communication. Sean is talking at them rather than to them. Barrier 2: Not listening actively Sean is not listening actively to his customers as he keeps speaking over the top of them. Barrier 3: Word choice Sean uses industry jargon when telling the customer what he s booked for them and this has created a barrier to communication as the elderly couple look at each other confused. Other barriers for this scenario could include: Cultural differences and Educational differences. Scenario 3 Barrier 1: Stereotyping Marcia has assumed the young guy who has walked in is a backpacker. She has stereotyped backpackers as not wanting to spend any money. Barrier 2: Non-verbal communication By folding her arms across her chest Marcia is displaying negative body language which is creating a barrier to effective communication. Barrier 3: Voice modulation and articulation The tone of Marcia s voice is creating a barrier to communication; it is telling the customer she isn t interested in helping him. Another barrier for this scenario could include: Personal. Edition 2 Published June 2012 Page 7 of 22
