Week 5 Reflection Journal
How do Communication skills connect with the course material this week? How did Communication skills help you with your research this week?
In order to have amazing leadership, great communication must be established as well. With seeing how much communication interlines with leadership, it has made me understand this week’s material easier. It has brought out my strengths and weaknesses. Overall, I now know how to improve on my weaknesses in order to make sure any task given to me will be accomplished with ease.
Write down at least one specific aspect of Communication that you need to still develop and describe how you could work on developing that aspect.
Communicating information clear and accurately is something I need to continue to develop. Some people I am great at it but I don’t think as such. Sometimes information that I give is not clear because of my frustrations beginning to show. So accepting criticism, being an active listener and understanding my workers will allow me to become a strong communicator.
How does Communication connect to achieving your career goals?
Communication is highly important with whatever you do in life. With my career, to become an efficient leader, I must become a great communicator. This will allow my worker to complete given tasks successfully, have myself looking superior to my upper leadership and be and have my workers trust me with anything they are going through. Great communication skills will allow me to focus more on my career goals as well.
Based on your work in the course as well as general education courses at Grantham University, explain what Communication means to you.
Communication can make or break an office, team, corporation or any organization. Communication to me is a tool that is develop amongst leader and workers to complete task successfully. It is also a tool to open up bonds of trust so that the workplace is peaceful and not a hostile environment.
Describe a specific assignment, presentation, or project you worked on in one of your past courses at Grantham University that allowed you to develop your Communication skills?
Every course that I have taken at Grantham University has taught me how to develop my communication skills. Mainly because of the discussion questions and replying back to my peers weekly. I have never taken a course where I was forced to be in opened discussion until taking classes with Grantham University. Which is a skill and trait that I will take serious to have an outstanding end result.
Write down at least one question you have about your organization, your research project, or this course in general?
We always write essays about how we should live as an outstanding leader. Why we cannot do recorded speeches rather than essays?
