Verbal Communication


  1. Overview
    From quick conversations to phone calls, meetings, formal presentations, and sales pitches, you must employ effective verbal communication skills at all times. While verbal interactions are extremely common, they can also be stressful. Every interaction contains the potential for success…and the danger of failure. To be “on your game” at all times requires purposeful practice, reflection, and adjustment based on input and feedback. No matter what your verbal communication skills are, you can improve them.
    In this assignment, you will develop and deliver a verbal communication for the scenario you have identified. Your communication should match your challenge or opportunity. For example, if your challenge is an interview for a new position, you may choose to record yourself answering a few key questions that might be posed by the interviewer.
    For the purposes of this course, your video presentation should not exceed 5 minutes. (Your scenario might require a much longer presentation, but limit your response to the key 5 minutes in this case.)
    For Part 1, create and deliver a verbal communication that aligns with your strategic communications plan. Record your presentation for submission to your instructor.
    For Part 2, reflect on your presentation, and document your preparation and how you used feedback to refine your verbal communication.
