Use headings, bullets, numbering, special formatting, and external links to relevant information to highlight key ideas. Read the case below and complete the instructions that follow. Case Haniz Zogby is a marketing specialist at Ingram Publishing, and Jaclyn Peha is a technology intern. Hanz and Jaclyn recently met about making changes to the website. Hanz thought the conversation went well and they reached some agreements about how to proceed. Jaclyn, on the other hand, though she was not given a fair chance to express some of her ideas and feels that Haniz dominated the conversation and did not allow her to express her ideas. She thinks the plan to develop the website is incomplete because it does not involve the integration of social media. Jaclyn is just an intern and Haniz technically is not her boss, but he is the lead person on the project. She wrote a late-night angry email to Haniz with her complaints. Now Haniz wants to resolve an uncomfortable situation with Jaclyn and make progress on improving the website. Note: Scenario reprinted with permission from McGraw-Hill. Signature Assignment: Case: Handling an Angry Email Instructions Assuming the role of Haniz, write an email (of no more than 700 words) to your senior project manager (not to Jaclyn) who also oversees Jaclyns internship.

Compare and contrast spoken versus written communication and assess the most effective communication methods to handle an emotionally charged email. (must use outside reference here) ? Recommendation – how you and Jaclyn could build and maintain a working relationship by using reinterpretation in response to the angry email. ? Write a Conclusion paragraph addressing the effectiveness of the communication processes used to achieve organizational goals and suggest a plan to defuse the situation and resolve any differences to remove the tension and move forward. Format your business email with a descriptive subject line, greeting, message (with headings for each main topic) , conclusion, pleasant closing, and a complete professional signature block. Use correct grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Use the bold words above in your headings (readability).

The Lord of Communication: a VIDEO quiz This is a first for my classes – a video quiz. I want you to create a video of yourself answering the quiz questions. Think of it like this: if we were in class, and I asked you to stand up and answer the first question, how would you respond? What would you say and how would you say it? How would you answer the question so we know that you have watched the film and you understand the business ethics concept? AND, just as importantly, how would you communicate your understanding to make OTHERS understand as well. Below is the Lord of War quiz. There are directions on the quiz, so be sure you read them.When answering the questions, please use as much detail and depth as you need to make your point clear to the audience. Your understanding of the characters, the film, and the business ethics concept should be explained using examples and detail from the film. The bottom line is this: I want to be sure you have watched the film, and you understand all of the business ethics concepts we have gone over. The questions on the quiz will show me if you have watched the movie and whether you have gone through the lecture notes. When you are ready, go to the “Student Videos/Speeches (Go React)” section to record your video quiz. There will be some directions there as well, so be sure to follow them.GO REACT NEW_LOW VIDEO QUIZ_2020.pdf GO REACT NEW_LOW VIDEO QUIZ_2020.pdf – Alternative Formats
