Demonstrative communication includes nonverbal and unwritten communication. Listening and responding is very vital in interpreting the message conveyed. This article contains examples and explanations on how demonstrative communication impacts the meaning of the message effectively or ineffectively.

Effective Demonstrative Communication
Communication is unavoidable. Everyday and everywhere, we use communication to express our thoughts and ideas. Communication is clearer when words, tone of voice, facial expression, and gestures are combined with words.

Standing straight and tall, constant eye contact to the audience, a firm projected voice, and proper tone of voice to emphasize points entails that he is strong and knowledgeable officer because of the confidence portrayed through demonstrative communication supporting his speech.

Ineffective Demonstrative Communication
Demonstrative communication can be misleading sometimes especially when it is not properly expressed. There are times that demonstrative communication is portrayed far opposite from the context of the message. As the saying goes “action speaks louder than words” holds true in this account.

One example is a human resources report regarding sexual harassment act. A company was holding a Christmas party at a five star hotel for employers and employees. A female employee asked a male employee to dance. She was wearing a very seductive dress. Her dance moves were...
