ASSESSMENT TASK 2: DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this assessment is to observe yourself and write a reflective paper about your own

communication style in the workplace.

In any form of communication, it is important to be aware of how we influence the process and to do this, we need to be able to identify our strengths and weakness in our communication skills. Developing self-awareness relies on being able to reflect deeply and recognise the role of ‘self’ impacting on outcomes of communication interactions.

To complete this task, first you will need to observe your professional communication in the form of face to face communication over the course of a week. Following this, select two examples of face to face communication to analyse and discuss: one example should showcase your communication weakness(es) and one example should showcase your communication strength(s).

The suggested format for this reflective essay is as follows:

• Brief introduction to paper

• Brief description of your face to face communication example demonstrating your weakness(es). 
Please include such as passive communication, unable to put own opinion, unable to persuade colleague/ patient during communication

• Using a clear reflective cycle (citing which reflective cycle you are using), critically reflect on your weakness(es) in the face to face communication example, and analyse the impact of those ‘self’ weakness(es) to the outcome of the communication exchange. Use theory to support your analysis. 
- Please use Gibbs refection cycle- each step needs to be analyzed and critically reflect – demonstrating my weakness during communication- this needs be supported by reference –

• Brief description of your face to face communication example showcasing your strength(s). (Please include such as 
 Empathy, active listening, effective coomuication)

• Using a clear reflective cycle (citing which reflective cycle you are using), critically reflect on your strengths in the face to face communication example, and analyse the impact of those ‘self’ strength(s) to the outcome of the communication exchange. Use theory to support your analysis. 
 Please use Gibbs refection cycle- each step needs to be critically reflect and analyzed – demonstrating strength - this needs be supported by reference –

• Analyse what you have learned about your persuasive professional communication abilities and how these impact on the outcomes of the communication. 


• Brief conclusion to paper. 


As this is a reflective task, you may use first person. Please ensure that you maintain confidentiality and privacy, so be sure to use pseudonyms for any descriptions of people or organisations.

As this is an academic essay, no headings or dot points may be used. You are expected to use literature to support the discussion throughout the paper. Correct APA (7th ed.) should be used.

For guidance on standards for assessment preparation, including referencing, please see Assessment Preparation Guidelines.
