My strengths are Ideation, Deliberation, Focus, Empathy, and Individualization. My top three strengths going in order are first: Individualization-I tailor my approach to each person and try to see how we can work better as a team. I enjoy peace and try to bring people together.
Communication takes place in any and all locations, intentionally and unintentionally, and it can be positive or negative. Many of our personal traits and character qualities can affect how we communicate with other people, and how they communicate with us. Recently, I had an experience that further proved this point to me in a very real and tangible way.
My greatest personal strength is that I am comfortable speaking to large groups. This will enable me to clearly give information and guide the ensemble effectively in any situation.
In my line of work, communication is important. As a healthcare professional whatever information I choose to communicate must be clear and precise since a miscommunication could potentially harm a patient. This event occurred just a few days ago at work; I had a patient on a mechanical ventilator with an extensive medical history that included end-stage renal disease (ESRD). He was in the ICU on CRRT, which is a bedside dialysis. I immediately noticed that he was breathing very fast which caused a drastic drop in his CO2 levels. I expressed my concerns to the patient’s nurse as well as my supervisor on that night. We tried brainstorming, and my supervisor finally said “just drop it to 8.” Since the patient was breathing fast, and the way to
Interpersonal communication is extremely important in the world. Being unable to effectively communicate limits your ability to succeed. Our group, although we all posses very different and strong personalities, worked very well together and were able to decide which items were essential to island survival. There were a few roles played in the group and some were even shared. Hopefully I can carry these reminders as I move into the workforce. Through these group activities, I learned how I work with others and the roles that emerge from a group.
As we learned in class, there is no single effective way to communicate; however, there are different strengths that someone can naturally have or acquire through practice (Adler, Rosenfield, & Proctor, 2015) . A strength that I believe I possess is being able to communicate well with different people in various situations. Sarah Beth is a girl in my church who is my age, and she has Down syndrome. Sarah Beth is highly functional, and she has contagious energy. Because Sarah Beth has Down syndrome, one has to speak a little more descriptively and a little less complicated to communicate well with her. Whenever I see Sarah Beth, she raises her hand to give me a high-five and she asks me about my boyfriend. Although I love seeing Sarah Beth
Modern human beings walk through the world with their heads down. Absorbed in the ever-growing realm of technology, they forget that they live in the real world. Communication is no longer achieved by speaking with our mouths, but by typing words on a screen with our fingers. The last several years have brought huge advancements in technology, many of which have greatly affected the way that we communicate with one another. Since 1995, the number of internet users worldwide has risen from 16 million to a whopping 3,035 million as of June 2014 (Internet World Stats), and as of 2014, 99% of all American citizens own a cellular telephone (Johnson). Many people are extremely grateful for these technological advances because they make interactions
In June 2012, standing at Parade Rest in front of my supervisor, I had to explain myself for making another soldier feel belittled. Staff Sergeant Waschler, the Treatment Noncommissioned Officer, criticized my interpersonal skills due to the teaching method I used to explain patient assessments and documentation to a fellow soldier. Besides remorse, a plethora of emotions beleaguered my mind including fear, surprise, and guilt during this encounter. Perplexed by all of this, I felt absolute regret since I had no intention of making the soldier feel disparaged. Staff Sergeant Waschler dismissed the soldier and explained to me that my teaching methods may not work effectively on every person and therefore a teacher must adjust their interpersonal
It is significant to state that there are similarities and differences between Sternberg’s theory of love and a biblical model. First and foremost, from what I can assimilate, the similarities between Sternberg’s theory of love and a biblical model are seen in intimacy and commitment. As scholars have concluded, intimacy includes trust, honesty, supportiveness, and being open. As far as commitment goes, we can see that there is loyalty, devotion, putting others before oneself, and the fact that we need each other. From a biblical standpoint, Jesus Christ wants nothing more than to offer all these things to us, but at times we are not willing to accept these gifts. The answer to perhaps fulfilling love,
My strength is personal preparation skills; these are skills I erudite during my master's degree program. They are time management and online learning experience. Time management is a skill that has helped me set and accomplish different goals in life. Online learning is a skill I attended. I love my private space and time alone to think and reflect. As a result of my master's program, I am more experienced in using the online library resource to find journal articles.
My wife and I have differing opinions regarding the importance of housework. For me, a clean home constitutes feelings of peace, happiness, and a clear mind. My wife on the other hand, feels that organization and cleanliness of the home are not essential to happiness within the home, but that the moments shared within the home create happiness. These personal schemas are important to consider in the upcoming interaction, as our dog has just given birth to a litter of puppies. This afternoon I was feeling overwhelmed. My wife spent the better part of the day sleeping, after a long shift. This left me with dishes, laundry, housework, and puppies to attend to. I felt like I was bearing more of the load in our relationship
Effective leadership is directly related with the ability of the leaders to lead the organizational and interpersonal communication, working on its development. The leader designs not only his interaction with other employees, but also with people, who interact within the company. He needs to live and work in conditions of the phenomenon of group dynamics. Effective leadership is impossible without effective communication. This subject is studied at the junction of several interrelated disciplines (management, psychology, conflict resolution, etc.). The purpose of this paper is to determine the relationship of leadership and communication and to suggest an effective leadership strategy to Williams` company.
When I first registered for this course, I wasn’t entirely sure what it would entail. If I’m being honest the term “interpersonal communication” wasn’t one with which I was familiar with. Upon reading the syllabus, I feel that I have a pretty good idea of what I can expect to learn. For this course, my goals are to learn how to communicate more effectively on multiple levels, such as within my written communication and verbal communication in particular. It’s my hope that this course will help me think more critically about the ways in which we communicate, and how those communication efforts impact our daily lives. As my instructor, I hope to receive feedback from you on my work. It helps to know what went wrong in an assignment

The people I like to work with, are the type of people that can speak out their mind and does not hesitate to state their thoughts. I also love working with people who seeks to be better everyday.
