What are the key elements of communication
What are the key elements of communication that you use in your work environment?
We communicate daily in our personal and professional lives. How we communicate with our friends and family differs from how we communicate in the workplace.
Consider how you react and what communication skills you use and answer the following questions:
How do you communicate with superiors, subordinates, and peers? Are the elements of communication different or is the approach different? What communication skills do you use when you are working in a team? What communication skills do you use when you are dealing with a situation that is making you angry, for example, phone rage? Do you believe that the same communication skills work for every situation? Why or why not? Write your response to each question in one paragraph. Be sure to refer to appropriate terms, concepts, and research from your readings this week to help support your response.
Second assignment !!!!!! Design Communications Manual
You have been appointed the vice president of the human resources department at a fictional multinational organization. It is your job to design the framework for a communications manual for this organization. The communications manual should contain best practices, company recommendations and scenarios all targeted at organizational communication.
The board of directors wants to have an overview of what you plan. Your job, in this assignment, is to prepare that overview in the form of a table of contents for the manual with a brief description of each section.
Please begin by naming your organization and defining your organization’s primary business.
Prepare a table of contents as an outline for your communications manual. Include at least five sections (communications topics) in the manual. Each section should have a heading and subheading. The heading should include a description of the topic. The subheading should include a) an example scenario of how this topic should be handled in your company b) a description of why this section is important to organizational communication and c) an explanation of how this communication policy will benefit both the employee and the organization.
Follow the table of contents with a one page action plan on how you will ensure that this communications manual is effectively implemented at your organization.
Your table of contents and action plan combined should be four to five pages in length with descriptions in Word format. Apply APA standards for writing style and references to the descriptions.
