Week 5 Assignment

De-Escalation

Conflict is inevitable, but how we deal with conflict is up to us. In this assignment, you will imagine a conflict at work and then decide the best way to use your communication skills in order de-escalate, or defuse, the conflict. Here is what you need to do.

1. Imagine that you have received an angry e-mail at work from either a colleague or a client. Write that e-mail in the style of an e-mail message including To, From, and Subject. If you have received an angry e-mail at work, you may choose to create a similar message to the one you received, but the message must be written in your own words. For examples of angry e-mails, as well as an excellent discussion of online incivility, see Chapter 10 of our textbook.

2. Decide on the best way to de-escalate the conflict, and then create the appropriate message. For example, you may choose to respond to the e-mail with another e-mail, or you may choose to respond in a different communication channel. If you decide to "change the channel," so to speak, you might choose to respond with a phone call, a video conference, or a personal meeting. You will then create that message. For good ideas on how to respond effectively to a rude or inappropriate e-mail, Chapter 10 of our textbook is a must read.

Requirements:

This should include the angry e-mail, written in the style of an e-mail. The length should be no longer than one page.

It should include the de-escalating response written in the appropriate format. If you choose an e-mail, write it in the style of an e-mail. If you choose a phone call, personal meeting, or video conference, you'll create a brief, imaginary dialogue between you and the angry colleague or client in which you de-escalate the conflict.

Conclude with a one-paragraph discussion of your communication channel choice. In other words, explain why you decided to respond in the way you did.

Week 6 Assignment

Outlining Your Presentation

A great first step when approaching a longer communication task is to create an outline. A well-written outline provides a clear organizational template and structure for a presentation, such as the one you are working on. Ultimately, the presentation you complete in Week 8 will draw upon and follow the outline you create here. Use the sample outline in Chapter 12 of our textbook as a guide. Before starting work on this assignment, be sure to read the opening section of Chapter 12, pages 279–288.

Requirements

Purpose statement: A declaration of the goal of your presentation

Thesis statement: A one-sentence summation of the central idea of your presentation

Three main points: Specific ideas related to the presentation topic

At least two subpoints for each main point: Subpoints help to explain main points

Sub-subpoints, as needed: Sub-subpoints help to explain subpoints

Week 7 Assignment

Annotated Bibliography

As Chapter 13 of our textbook notes, an effective presentation must have solid support in the form of research. Toward that end, this week you will create an annotated bibliography consisting of at least four high-quality sources in support of your presentation topic. At least two of these sources must come from a library database, such as Ebscohost or ProQuest.

The annotations should be listed in alphabetical order (by lead author's last name or first word of the title if no author) and include the following elements.

The reference in APA format

A summary of the article written in your own words

(Warning: Do not copy the abstract.)

One quotation from the article, incorporated into a sentence, written in APA style, including author, date, and page number

An overall assessment of the article and how you feel it will fit into your presentation

A sample annotation is shown below.

Reference: Austermuehle, E. (2018). Monitoring employees through GPS technology: What is legal and what are best practices? Employee Relations Law Journal, 44(1), 10-14.

Summary: Austermuehle's article shows that there are a number of benefits to employee monitoring, as well as some risks that need to be accounted for. Among the benefits are making sure that employees are adhering to laws and company policies, improving employee productivity, and increasing employee safety. On the other hand, risks include invading employee privacy, which may result in litigation or lower employee morale. Austermuehle believes that employee monitoring can be beneficial, but argues that it must comply with the law, be used only for legitimate reasons, and not be used outside of work hours. In addition, a clear written policy on monitoring should be provided to employees.

 

Quotation: Austermuehle (2018) states that "employers should monitor employees only to the extent that it is justified by a business need" (p. 13).

Overall Assessment: Austermuehle's article is well written, well researched, and presents a balanced approach to a controversial topic. It will prove useful in my presentation on employee monitoring.
