For your paper, please take a look at the videos and article presented that are linked below. Pay particular attention to the video and article, as you watch/read, take notes on some of the topics presented that interest you.

Article: The Puzzle of Non-Verbal Communication

Requirements for this assignment:

Your paper should utilize appropriate course material that we have covered in regards to non-verbal communication. 

Ensure you address the following topics in your paper:

Pick three areas of interest from the article or video and discuss why you find it interesting, if you have seen any personal examples of it (i.e., someone who covers their mouth while talking, specific gender non-verbals, cultural differences).

This paper should be fun, I would suggest that you read/watch the materials as soon as possible and then start observing others around you for some non-verbal clues.

Page 1 = Cover Page

Pages = 2-4 = Body (3 pages a minimum discussion of non-verbal areas of interest)

WEEK 5 POWERPOINT PROJECT

Topic: Teaching Effective Presentation Skills 

Instructions: This project requires you to develop a PowerPoint slide presentation for use as a training tool with managers and supervisors on how to prepare an effective presentation. As you move up through the workforce you will at some point be required to give a briefing or presentation to others. Hopefully, one day you will also have to the opportunity to develop one of your worker’s speaking and presentation skills. There is great satisfaction in taking a nervous employee, helping them to develop their presentation, coaching them on delivery and then watching them knock it out of the park! With this in mind, your presentation should briefly outline (i.e., no more than 2-3 slides) how to start a presentation (that is attention-getting steps) an and overview for the audience. You should focus the majority of your presentation (i.e., 8-10 slides) on what makes an effective presentation. Factors to consider in all forms of communication–Who is your audience? What is your message? Are you trying to persuade? Inform? The Week 5, Lesson 1 has a lot of great information to get you started, as well as the Forum in Week 4 (the Guy Kawasaki TED Talk). 

Here are some guidelines to get you started: You are going to brief a small group of newly graduated APUS Business Students on how to present an effective presentation. Your audience ages are anywhere from 20-60 years of age, with various business backgrounds, military experience, and even some small business owners. 

There should be an introduction slide, a topic overview slide, 10-12 slides on presentation techniques, a conclusion slide and lastly a reference slide. Use the “notes” feature of PowerPoint to list your talking points on each slide for me to read what you would actually be saying.

Submission Instructions: IMPORTANT! Save and submit your work as a PowerPoint Presentation with speaker notes

Link here on how to do this in PPT

Your grade will be based upon your ability to follow assignment instructions, research conducted, the effectiveness of the training proposed, critical thinking and analysis, and APA 7th edition format.

Please support your ideas, arguments, and opinions with independent research, include at least 
three (3) supporting references or sources
 (do NOT use your textbook as one of the three required references, or encyclopedias, Wikipedia, unknown, undated, or anonymous sources, such as brief articles from websites), include a reference section (i.e., 1-2 slides), and cite all sources properly in the text of each slide, in accordance with the 7th edition of the APA manual.

Helpful Tips

I encourage you to go online to Purdue OWL, or Excelsior OWL, which have writing labs for students. Look up PowerPoint presentations in APA format in the search box. These websites will have helpful tips on best practices. TED talks are also another great source for good information.

WEEK 7 FINAL PAPER

You are to write no longer than a 7-page paper in proper APA 7th Edition format. For your paper, you will create a fictional character for a movie. The character should be in a management position. Your paper should utilize appropriate course material (and from your own research).

Describe the personality of your character (this is to help the reader understand the challenges your leader faces).

How did your character develop their management traits?

Identify three management traits that the leader possesses and explain why they are necessary to a successful manager.

How you can develop each skill or trait in your own life? Training, education, experience, etc. – but be specific (if you create goals, they should be SMART).

What are the possible disadvantages of having these traits?

How have you seen the selected traits utilized effectively in your own experiences in life?

How can you market the traits (for this I would like to see resume bullets for each of the traits)? – Put yourself in your character’s shoes, as if they were writing a resume.
