Discussion 1 and 2 | BUS 340 Business Communications | Ashford University

Discussion 1

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 13 from your textbook; the articles Focusing on the Fundamentals of Effective Communication Within an Organization and Effective Communication for Corporate Sector: A Need for a Paradigm Shift; and the Week 5 Weekly Lecture.

Business speakers do not always have the luxury of complete confidence in the material they have to present. For instance, sales forecasts for new products are notoriously difficult to make because they depend on multiple factors in the marketplace. If you were presenting a forecast that was the best available answer but not one that you confidently believed, should you still follow the guidelines presented in your readings for appearing confident in front of your audience? Explain your answer in two to three paragraphs and include a minimum of one scholarly and/or credible source from the library.

Guided Response: Review several of your peers’ posts, responding to at least three of them by Day 7. Respond substantively to at least three classmates throughout the week, suggesting aspects that they may have overlooked. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion forum. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 and respond robustly to anyone who replies to your initial post.

Discussion 2

Enhancing Presentations [WLO: 2] [CLOs: 4, 5]

Describe what would be the easiest issue to control. Explain your reasoning and provide a practical real-world example.
