The essay highlights the key improvements that I need to do in order to develop my research and writing skills.
This course has taught me the significance of communication in business. The course has helped me in developing deeper understandings about the positives of communication in business that has helped me in writing a good introduction for the essay. I have been able to write a good introduction, as I emphasized on the internal and external benefits of communication in business thereby, ensuring success. However, I need to develop an in-depth understanding of the significance of communication in business that will help me to write an excellent introduction. I still need improvement in this course that will help to write an excellent introduction that will help in developing better and in-depth understanding of the topic.
I have explained the terms ethos, pathos and logos and their role in business communication successfully by mentioning their main features and the cognate strategies involved. I have provided in-depth details of ethos, pathos and logos by describing and critically analyzing each of the features of ethos, pathos and logos. I have described in detail the tone and approach the individuals need to follow that helps to ensure effective communication among the individuals in business. However, I have misunderstood the cognate strategies of ethos and pathos. Pathos is concerned with humor rather than ethos. Thus, I need to discuss the cognate strategies and features of ethos and pathos more intricately. This will help me to develop a deeper and clear understanding of the cognate strategies of ethos and pathos thereby, preventing such confusion in future. In addition, I need to evaluate critically the viewpoints and perspectives of different authors regarding ethos, pathos and logos that will provide me an opportunity to clarify my doubts and support my arguments.
Invitation to External Special Guest
I have mentioned in detail the the significance of emphasizing on the emotional connection while communication. This is because I have mentioned the benefit of emotionally connecting with the audience. However, I need to improve this in order to get an excellent comment. I can achieve excellence by considering the emotional aspects the speaker needs to consider while communicating with the audience. This is because each individual have a distinctive personality that restricts the speaker to establish a same emotional connection to each individual. In addition to emphasizing more on the process of establishing an emotional connection in detail would have helped me in achieving excellent comment in this section. I have only mentioned the cognate strategies in pathos that helped in effective communication and defined them separately. Nevertheless, I have failed to discuss how each of the cognate strategies can be implemented in order to ensure effective communication with suitable examples in terms of business. I have described the cognate strategies in terms of audience and speakers but have failed to relate it to business communication. Therefore, explaining the cognate strategies of ethos, pathos and logos with suitable examples in terms of business communication would have helped me in achieving excellent comment.
I have been able to provide an insight into the cognate strategies of pathos by explaining the different cognate strategies separately. This has helped to develop a deeper and in-depth understanding of the features of pathos that is essential in establishing effective business communication. I have been successful in providing insightful details about the significance of pathos by explaining the features with suitable examples. I have also mentioned the challenges faced by the speakers while establishing effective communication. Thus, mentioning the potential challenges that can be encountered in business communication along with methods of overcoming them. This has helped me in getting excellent comments from the professor.
I have been successful in receiving an excellent comment while describing the significance of communication in business in this digital age. I have mentioned how ethos, pathos and logos can be used in today’s business communication along with their significance. I have used suitable examples of the use of the cognate strategies of ethos, pathos and logos for ensuring effective communication in business. Additionally, I have also mentioned the potential challenges that are encountered while communicating in business and how the cognate strategies of ethos, pathos and logos can be sued to overcome them. I have critically evaluated the viewpoints and perspectives of different authors in terms of ethos, pathos and logos thereby, judging their suitability in terms of application in business communication.
I have conducted extensive research while writing this report that has helped me in providing a deeper understanding of the application and significance of ethos, pathos and logos in business communication. Extensive research has also helped me to understand the viewpoints, opinions and perspectives of different authors while writing the report. Additionally, reading different journals and research works have helped to develop a deeper understanding of ethos, pathos and logos in business communication that has helped me in writing the report with such depth and insightfulness. Moreover, I have considered reading recent journals that are not more than 5 years old. As a result, I have been able to consider recent information in writing the essay. Thus, the essay has recent and updated information in terms of the significance of ethos, pathos and logos in business communication in this digital age.
According to the feedback of the lecturer, I need to check the use of spelling, grammar and use of punctuation. Improving in these areas will help me in enhancing my writing skills as well as getting good grades in my course. According to the comment received, I have mixed the American and British spelling throughout the assignment. I need to be more careful while writing my assignments in terms of American and British spellings. I need to assure that I use similar spelling throughout my assignment thereby, sticking to one of the forms, either American or British. According to the comment received, I need to improve the use of punctuation while writing the report. This is because appropriate use of punctuations tends to bring sense in the writing thereby, communicating the message well to the readers. Thus, I need to use the punctuations appropriately such as commas afterwords in order to create a pause before commencing the long sentence.
