Please reflect this week on your communication journey. In week 1, you rated your communication skills. Take the scale below and rate yourself now:
Novice: You tend to “wing it” when communicating. Your messages seldom achieve your desired goals.
Intermediate: Your communications are sometimes effective, but you lack an established process for communicating (and you aren’t actively testing your methods).
Proficient: You apply some tools and techniques of communications and, while you may do so inconsistently, you are fairly effective when you communicate.
Distinguished: You are considered highly professional. You regularly influence outcomes through communications and you are highly communications-oriented.
Expert: You have extensive experience in business communications, are well-versed in the topic, and can influence goals strategically while driving action with your messaging.
Explain how good communication and writing can help your career and your life.
