14 weeks had passed since the start of the course. Initially, this module was just a module that I had to bear with for 15 weeks and be done with it, but as time passed the module had helped me developed lots of communication skills that I could use in my life. There are also goals that I set during the first blog post that was to understand myself better when I am communicating with someone else. I am now more aware of how I am communicating and able to understand my own conversations more now.
I have also learned communications models such as the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) and Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence Management Strategy. These are the tools that we used in our project to tackle our workplace abuse problem. TKI is about the 5 conflict management mode to help us approach on solving conflicts and Daniel Goleman’s approach is to help us identify our own emotions and how to manage it.
Other than learning more about communication, I am thankful for such a group with high efficiency in producing quality work as well as spending the time to discuss and work up on the project. I appreciate all the efforts made by my team mates and such camaraderie is hard to find during a 1-trimester module. Overall the project was a great success as everyone presented well and put in their best efforts during the whole trimester. All the challenges faced during this module and the experience gained is a worthwhile one.
I wish everyone the best in their future endeavors!
