Wk 1 – Communication Styles and the Business Communication Process

This assignment focuses on communication styles and the business communication process. Students apply the communication styles to a conversation they recently experienced to better understand their own style and how it is perceived by others. Additionally, students learn the elements of the transactional communication process and how that process can be applied in a business setting.


Consider a recent interpersonal conversation you had in a business setting.


Create a 800 to 1,050-word analysis in which you:

  • Discuss the content of the conversation. What was communicated in the conversation, and who were the communicators?
  • Explain which style from Edmondson best describes the method of communication you and the other person used throughout the conversation.
  • Explain why you selected those styles and how the conversation would have been different if you had used each of the different styles of communication.
  • Discuss in what ways the business setting affected the communication process.


Cite at least two references in your paper.


Format your paper according to APA guidelines.


Submit your assignment.
