communication challenge

n Week 2 of your CCC, you will be laying the foundation and putting together a plan for the change you will implement in Week 3. The challenge you identified and had approved in 1E during Week 1 is the challenge that will be your focus for Weeks 2 and 3.

Note: The headings identified below and detailed on your template must be used to keep your submission organized.

Project Timeline
The following is a breakdown of what will be covered in each part of the project:

Due Description
Week 1 Selecting a communication goal  and conducting research
Week 2 Describing communication pattern, analyzing goal, and developing a plan
Week 3 Implementation of the plan and evaluation of your progress


Before you try to repair the communication challenge identified in Week 1 Part 1E, you first need to identify a pattern and understand where the breakdown takes place. Consider your encounters over the last few weeks. When did this challenge occur? If you have selected as your challenge “keeping a calm voice when instructing my children,” then identify when you did not keep a calm voice. Next, identify your challenge as a behavioral pattern. Here is this challenge stated above as a behavioral goal, “I want to keep a calm voice when instructing my children.” Now it is your turn, write your behavioral challenge as a behavioral goal that begins with the phrase, “I want to….”

Next, put yourself in someone else’s shoes. . . someone who has the same communication challenge you identified in 1E in Week 1. Answer the following questions as if you were watching the challenge take place.

  • What did that person do to escalate the communication challenge?
  • What could that person have done to de-escalate the communication challenge?
  • What must that person be saying and/or doing for me to say that he/she has achieved the communication goal that he or she shares with you?
