Assignment 1: Discussion—Planning a Presentation to Summarize Your Course Learning
In this course, you have examined the various aspects of effective leader and manager communication in organizations. Now is your opportunity to summarize and synthesize what you have learned.
Respond to the following:
- Describe at least four major things you have learned in this course.
- Explain why these are important for organizational effectiveness.
- Explain why they are important for you personally as a leader or manager in an organization.
As a leader or manager, you will be called upon to deliver information in PowerPoint presentations. Being able to communicate concepts and information effectively is a very important skill. Using the same information that you discussed in the three points above, you should (1) identify the major points you would include in a PowerPoint presentation and (2) discuss at least five criteria that you would use to design and develop this presentation so it communicates most effectively with an audience of your choosing.
