Using reflective material from independent study and/or in-class activity explore issues of communication, listening, relationships, and process and show how engagement in these exercises have influenced your thinking around areas for personal development. You can frame your response here using Gibb’s Reflective model or devise a communication action plan.
Using these insights, you will need to record a 10-minute communication encounter with another member of the group. Within this, you will take the role of the listener/helper. The discussion topic is between you and your colleague. You need to agree between you on the boundaries and issues of confidentiality.
We would suggest two things a) do a number of recordings and b) watch them all and then chose one in order to elicit and demonstrate the communication skill/aspect that you would like to enhance, critique and develop.
The recording which I completed showed signs that my eye contact was inadequate and I could have listened more to the respondent. Other factors which could be reflected upon was my sitting position ect.
