Positive communication is about the way we express ourselves by talking, listening and by our non-verbal cues such as body language. Most of us can learn how to effectively communicate, the question is do you want to learn? One barrier to effective communication that I deem important is stereotyping, it sure is one of the most difficult problems I have yet to overcome. Stereotypes are generalizations, or assumptions that individuals make about another group of people based off your own or other people’s opinions and encounters. Stereotyping is my biggest problem when it comes to communicating effectively with other people.

Generally, the message is the variable the speaker has the most control over, however since I was provided with a curriculum my message could only be manipulated so much. This lead me to spend a large portion of my preparation brainstorming examples that my audience could relate too. If your audience can relate to what you’re saying they will me more receptive to the message. I believed this topic would be too difficult for the class to grasp, however they proved me wrong. After generalizing each lesson the class surprised me with many of their responses and even their ability to review the lesson after each activity was finished.
People with non-confrontable personalities and those who do not like conflict in my opinion may have a harder time reaching out to the team about how to better the organization. It may be harder for them to take that constructive criticism and turn that into a positive learning experience and then share that with every other member of the team. It’s hard to identify and fix a communication problem if we don’t know what type of network group we are dealing with. As we have learned from the text about the three common small group networks, the
Public speaking anxiety results into boring and poor speech which is made in hurry. Through my communication lessons I have known how to prepare and practice, get organized, know the details of my topic and learn how to visualize on my success as a communicator in order to beat the fear of public speaking.

In my experience, my first observation was difficult to perform because it is hard to focus on the surroundings and one can get easily distracted. The second observation was still sort of difficult because I have reflected on my first experience as an observer. As I gain more experience as an educator observing should become like a natural thing like breathing. In addition, there are personal challenges teachers need to overcome such as, personal biases that could come in the way of an observation. The goal is to be conscious of the bias we bring to our work and to be open to multiple interpretations of observed behavior (Gordon & Williams-Browne, 2015).
The Topic Communication skills and interactions are very important for every part of life. The way that people communicate can affect how well they do in school, in their careers and in their interactions with friends and family members. Some of the most important communication skills for success in our lives occurs without the use of words, and instead takes the form of an action. This can be the way in which someone stands, what their posture looks like, where they look, where they hold their arms and whether or not they make eye contact. This is because people tend to say things with their bodies that may otherwise go unnoticed, or may indicate that they mean something different from what they are saying.
Public Speaking is way to present thought, ideas, facts and many other things. Although, for most people it is anxiety and confusion. It is important to be an effective public speaker.

Most people have a time in their life where they must get up and present, whether it be for their job, school, or other activities.
Personally, I am not confident with my speaking skills at this point. I would like my audience to fully comprehend the concepts or facts that I would present to them. In order to do so I must improve my speaking skills I believe that a problem most people, including myself, have when giving speeches is facing an audience. Just looking out to an audience of a mere ten could get your knees knocking. I know it is important not to let your audience know that you are nervous because this could easily make them doubt what you are about to say.
The Importance of Listening Throughout my life I have had struggles communicating to other individuals, because instead of having a normal conversation with another person, it seems I am only part of that to be a listener. When I started thinking about this topic I realized that the fault didn’t lay on the other person but on me for not being able to express my experiences in the simple way other do. It is a fact that not everyone knows how to communicate, and to this properly, there are many factors that go in that need to be learned. In order for communication skills to improve we must be receptive of our own capacity to effectively understand what a proper conversation with another person is like while still having in consideration that
