For this assignment, think back of a time where you think you used the wrong channel to convey a message to someone in your life. Examples could be sending a text message to break up with someone, or emailing a boss when in both situations you should have talked to them face to face.

In a 2-page paper, written using appropriate spelling/grammar, address the items below. Remember to be descriptive, and use as much detail in your examples as possible.

  1. Describe the relationship you have/had with the person in the interaction.
  2. Explain which channel you used initially and why you think it was the wrong means to communicate with them.
  3. Explain which channel would have been better for the situation and why you think it would have been more effective.

Answer preview

Reflecting on time, I think I used the wrong form of communication when I was breaking up with someone, we had dated for quite a long time. I believe a weak communication channel was used considering the long-term relationship we shared. This person became my lover after several years of friendship; hence the break up was a significant decision in both our lives. Therefore, I now realize that a better mode of communication should have been used to end things without grudging. This person was not only a lover but a friend to also my family members. It is obvious they play a crucial role in my life, but I chose to take the coward way out, and end things between us.

Principles of communication

Go back and review the Communication Principles in the reading and in this module’s lesson content. Familiarize yourself with the information and address the following in your post.

  1. Choose two of the principles of communication.
  2. Provide two examples for each of the principles (so you will have a total of 4 examples by the end of your post).
  3. How could you apply your knowledge of these principles in a future interaction to prevent or reduce misunderstanding?

Answer preview

The knowledge of these principles of communication can be applied in preventing or reducing misunderstanding in future interactions. Among the ways in which I can apply the knowledge of these principles is by being specific in communication. When sending an email, making a phone call, or talking in a meeting, I can apply the knowledge of these principles by avoiding spending much time giving details that are unnecessary to prevent misunderstanding. This can be achieved by keeping it straight to the point. I can also apply the knowledge of these principles to maintain focus during communication to track the points I want to communicate in the message. This is because when one is not focused during communication, it is easy to forget to share important points on the matter being addressed, which can misguide the audience.

Communication Plan for Wells Fargo

The textbook provides an example of using the Pyramid Principle approach to communication using a top-down approach. It consists of an overarching summary statement, with levels of support linked in a dialogue which answers why, what, how, below it. Placing the levels into one sentence helps test the logic and flow (see textbook example). USING this pyramid approach create a communication for your organization and post to the discussion board. Responses from classmates should offer constructive feedback for improvement. (Use this opportunity to create a “real” communication for your organization, department or team).

The communication plan outlines a communication in Well Fargo by a top manager to employees on crucial strategic messages. The first level of each message communicates what is to be done, the second level why it will be done, and the third level how it is done. The pyramid principle in a top-down communication is useful to clearly articulate the message to subordinates who were not involved in the planning process (Awasthy, Chandrasekaran, & Gupta, 2011).

Importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace

Q1 discussion

This discussion is about the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace (see page 76 in textbook). Please remember the adhere to Netiquette guidelines (see page 8 course syllabus) so that we can share and be part of an inclusive classroom environment.


Communicating for success is vital for success in the workplace. This discussion is about emotional intelligence and the positive effects at work.
As you studied the chapter on emotions, it is important to manage emotions according to role expectations and social norms (page 265 in textbook). The goal is to create positive emotions (see page 255 in textbook) that create positive feelings when interacting with co-workers and customers alike.

For this week’s discussion please address the following questions:
What would be your part in contributing to a positive work environment with your co-workers? If you do not have work experience, discuss positive emotions you experienced that you might have had participating on a sports team or in a volunteer capacity such as a fundraising event.

What nonverbal messages (body language, tone of voice, eye contact, smiling) can you send that would create an enriching emotional environment. Ultimately, what strategies would you use to create your “dream job?”
Remember, arguably we all might have had in some way or another unsatisfactory experiences in the workplace but the focus in this discussion is on creating and maintaining a positive and polite work environment.

Please contribute your primary post of approximately 350-450 words

Answer preview

When creating an enriching environment, I would use several nonverbal messages. For example, I would use eye contact during a conversation. To make it effective, I would ensure that the time I maintain eye contact makes other people comfortable. When people maintain eye contact, they can gauge each other’s responses and interests. I would also use body language, such as nodding, to show that I am paying attention during a conversation. People are motivated to share their minds when they know that they have the attention of others. Another nonverbal message I would use is a soft tone to create a calm environment.

Answer preview

Language and speech development are the two basic components of communication in children. Recognizing the normal language and speech development in children is important in knowing whether the child’s communication is developing right. A child can be affected by communication disorders during early development leading to delay in the child’s communication.  Delay in children’s communication is different, but the stages of language and speech development in children are the same (Lewis, 2017). However, there are variations in the age at which children develop. By the time a child attains one year, the child should develop speech in terms of babbling and cooing. Before a child is 12 months old, he or she should be paying attention to various sounds and saying words like mama.

Intercultural communication entails both the verbal and non-verbal components of interacting with others (Pipas and Jaradat, 2014). The aspects of intercultural communication that I am deeply versed in is always asking for feedback. Whether the audience is responsive, I tend to engage my audience to obtain a direct and honest response. However, I need to work on my non-verbal communication, such as body movement and maintaining eye contact with others. Besides, some gestures or actions may have different interpretations of cultures.

The strategies that I will apply to be culturally competent in public speaking are learning critical verbal and non-verbal communication among different cultures. Each ethnic group has rules that govern how they interact with one another. Elements such as body movements, facial expressions, tone, eye contact, and gestures can be received differently due to the varied meanings in cultures (Pipas and Jaradat, 2014). Therefore, I will be thoughtful about the cultural background of my audience to avoid presenting confusing messages.

Verbal and nonverbal behaviors

For this discussion, you are going to observe a conversation between two people and comment on both their verbal and nonverbal behaviors during the interaction.

First listen to either a conversation you observed outside of your home, such as at school, a grocery store, an elevator or on a bus. Do not make it obvious you are listening to their conversation, just casually observe. While you are observing, try to answer the following questions and report back about the conversation in your original post.

  1. What do you think the relationship between the two people was?
  2. What do you think they were discussing?
  3. What nonverbal actions occurred in the interaction?
  4. What paralanguage did you pick up on and how did it influence the conversation?

Keep in mind these responses will all be conjecture because you will not know what the true answers are. The point is to see what information you can obtain by simply watching people converse.

Answer preview

I think the relationship between the two people was that of a couple who engaged in a fight. It seems like they were either dating partners or married, but I could not tell the state of their relationship. However, they were not in good terms because they appeared to conflict about the pregnancy based on their non-verbal communication. All I heard were people shouting and calling each other names. I could tell there were emotions involved in the conversation, and they were couples who had argued about an issue revolving around the pregnancy.

Discuss the current methodologies used to secure wired or wireless networks via current Firewall technologies and the potential exposures that currently exist

Summary in 250 words


Answer preview

The firewall comes in handy when securing a network from various exposures to security threats. Some of these exposures include DDoS attacks and identity theft. The DDoS attack happens on a network, where the targeted server is flooded with fake traffics (Diovu & Agee, 2017), thus denying the legitimate user from accessing the server. However, this exposure is avoidable with a functional firewall, which blocks all fake traffics. Identity theft occurs when an adversary uses the information of another user to execute frauds on the internet. If the firewall is down, an attacker can access user information because there would be no filtering of packets.

Case Study #3: Insomnia and Sleep Disorders

S.H., age 47, reports difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. These problems have been ongoing for many years, but she has never mentioned them to her health care provider. She has generally “lived with it” and self-treated the problem with OTC Tylenol PM. Currently, she is also experiencing perimenopausal symptoms of night sweats and mood swings. Current medical problems include hypertension controlled with medications. Past medical history includes childhood illnesses of measles, chickenpox, and mumps. Family history is positive for diabetes on the maternal side and hypertension on the paternal side. Her only medication is an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and diuretic combination for hypertension control. She generally does not like taking medication and does not take any other OTC products.

Diagnosis: InsomnIa

2. What drug therapy would you prescribe? Why?

3. What are the parameters for monitoring the success of the therapy?

4. Discuss specific patient education based on the prescribed therapy

The second inline therapy would be Estazolam. This is also an insomnia therapy for chronic insomnia. According to several pharmacology types of research, this therapy also has high efficacy in the treatment of sleep disorders. It is among the therapies that have lower probabilities to adverse effects on its users. Notably, Estazolam has no adverse effects such as somnolence and nausea unless the patient has withdrawn from the medication abruptly. Withdrawal from the medication is supposed to be slow and gradual to avoid the side effects. Over the counter (OTC) medicines, are those the S.H can buy without a doctor’s prescription, but through the following the label, they can be administered safely. Melatonin is an appropriate OTC that the patient can apply. This medication will critically help S.H in controlling her natural sleep-wake cycle in a more relaxed way. Research has shown that hormone melatonin supplements are useful in the treatment of jet lag and so its effectiveness for chronic insomnia treatment (Edelson et al. 2020).

The people we form relationships with, intimate or otherwise, are determined by various factors (Adler 261). Some people come together and get close as a result of appearances, similarities, complementarity, or even rewards. My relationship with Dwayne stems from the similarities we share and how well we used to complement each other. Although we shared the general love for some items or activities, our preferences we quite different but complementary. I will use our love for basketball to illustrate this point. Even though we are huge basketball fans, we support two very different teams. I support the Los Angel Lakers while Dwayne is a big LA Clippers fan. Besides being neighbors, the love for basketball and the rivalry between the two teams are amongst the reasons we became close.
