Discuss about the Professional Development and Business Communication for Subjectivity.
This reflection has been based on the Professional development and Business communication in which discussion will be made regarding the different aspects which have been learned during the course. I have developed knowledge regarding the different aspects in this course which have contributed towards my knowledge and will help me in future. This assessment has been done in different weeks for developing knowledge of the different concepts of the business environment which results in the development of the individual at professional as well as personal level. I will be able to perform the roles and responsibilities assigned in the future in a better manner.
I have gained knowledge of the communication and business foundation. This has helped me in understanding the role played by communication in performing the roles and responsibilities assigned to a professional. Communication is essential for the exchange of the information and flow of the information in a better manner. I have learned about the role of communication in performing the tasks in a better manner and establishing healthy relationships with the different individuals. I will apply the knowledge gained for meeting the objectives of the professional life (Porarinsdottir, 2012).
Another aspect which has been discussed in this course is interpersonal skills. Interpersonal skills are those skills which are used by an individual for interacting with others in a proper manner. I have understood the role of interpersonal skills in shaping the personality of the individual. This skill will help me in attaining the goals in a better way. It is required for solving the problems faced at the professional level. I will apply interpersonal skills for dealing with the problems faced at professional and personal level. I will apply the knowledge gained for enhancing my interpersonal skills. I will use this knowledge for developing a positive behavior towards the different aspects of life (SSG, 2014).
Visual communication is another aspect which has been covered in the course which is an important element. In the visual communication process, communication is done with the help of a visual aid. Communication is done with the use of the symbols and imagery. An individual can share the ideas and information and the others can read and view the ideas and information with the help of visual aids. I have learned the importance of visual communication as the use of visual communication will help me in saving time, clarity is maintained while delivering the message, sharing consistent experience and retention of the information is done in a better manner (Derntl, 2014).
I have learned the role of the writing process and writing academically and written communication is important as it ensures that the information is communicated in a clear manner. Writing skills create an impact on the success in the professional life. In the professional and personal file, it is vital to communicate in a better manner for ensuring that information is communication efficiently and effectively. I need to develop effective writing skills for ensuring that I will be able to communicate with different individuals in the professional life in a better manner. I have learned that one must develop writing skills for ensuring that one is capable of interacting with others properly (Dolan, 2016).
Oral presentation and public speaking is another important element which contributes towards the professional development of the individual. I have learned that oral presentation and public speaking skills are required while performing the roles assigned. As a professional, I will have to give presentations and speeches among a large number of people and for this, I need to enhance my public speaking and oral presentation skills (Warnock, 2008). One must be fluent in communicating information or sharing information for enhancing the flow of information and making sure that information is passed on in an effective manner. I will focus on developing my public speaking and oral presentation skills for ensuring that I can share information and communicate in a better manner (Urzua and Vasques, 2008).
Another aspect discussed in the course is reflective writing. Reflective writing can be explained as the providing an overview of the aspects learned and impact of the learning on the individual. I have developed the knowledge of the manner in which reflections are written. I have learned the importance of reflection writing as this helps in the discussing the learning which I have gained from the execution of a course or enrollment in a course. As a professional, one must collect and analyze information collected from conducting a research. Professional needs knowledge of different aspects of the business environment and this can be gained with the help of the collection and analysis of the research information. I have learned that knowledge of the various aspects of the business environment can be developed with the help of conducting a research activity for gathering relevant data. I have learned how to present the research information for communicating the information with the others in professional life (Billett, 2010).
Business writing is essential for a professional as a professional need to develop business writing skills. For the attainment of the knowledge of the business aspects, there is a need to develop business writing skills. Effective writing acts as an effective tool of the business environment which helps in presenting the business information in a better manner. Being a successful professional, I need to develop business writing skills for presenting information in different formats. Team effectiveness is essential for business as promoting and ensuring team effectiveness will help in enhancing the performance and attainment of the goals. I have developed knowledge of the role of team effectiveness which will help me in professional life for developing a better team for performing the operations of the business (Helyer, 2010).
Thus, at the end of the reflection it can be concluded that as a professional, one needs to develop various skills for performing the role assigned in a better manner. I have developed knowledge of different aspects which are crucial for a professional. These aspects include interpersonal skills, visual communication, reflective writing, public speaking and oral presentation, analysis, and presentation of the research information, business writing and role of team effectiveness.
