What is Communication Cycle?

Communication Cycle is the process by which a message is sent by one individual and it passes through a chain of recipients. The timings and effectiveness of a communication cycle is based on how long it takes for feedback to be received by the initial sender.

  • Sender: the person or entity originating the communication
  • Message: the information that the sender wishes to convey
  • Encoding: how the sender chooses to bring the message into a form appropriate for sending
  • Channel: the means by which the message is sent
  • Receiver: the person or entity to whom the message is sent
  • Decoding: how the receiver interprets and understands the message
  • Feedback: the receiver’s response to the message
