Write a 700-1000 word paper considering the following: Destructive communication takes many forms. This is vividly depicted in the film, The 33.
- Describe a work interaction in which you witnessed or experienced one-upping, withdrawing, bottling negative emotions, lashing out unexpectedly, engaging in personal insult rather than addressing a problem, or insistence on handling issues alone. Be sure to define the term(s) you are using for this example.
- Explain the response this behavior created in the interaction and how you or the other person reacted in turn.
NOTE: If you cannot think of a personal work situation where one of these events occurred, you might want to view The 33 and use an example from the film.
- Given what you have learned in this chapter, discuss what you would have done differently in that interaction and what advice would you give others in a similar situation. If you choose to use the film, discuss what did the miners did to resolve their communication and work through group conflict.
