Communication is "the imparting or exchanging of information or news," and "a connection between people or places," according to the New Oxford American Dictionary.
Miscommunication can happen in scenario, whether it's between a romantic relationship, a partnership with co-workers for a group project or where to go when there is an emergency evacuation. Excellent and effective communication is vital.
In reality, crises occur daily. In 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported 1,247,321 violent crimes in the United States. This statistic ranges from murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. Additionally, the same year, nearly 11,000 deaths were reported as a result of murder or manslaughter involving a firearm.
