Communication Styles


In this lesson, students learn a great deal about communication styles and then analyze one another’s style to understand what their preferred styles are. They should also think about the Platinum Rule that says the speaker should treat others however the other person would like to be treated and not how the speaker prefers it. By understanding that everyone has different communication styles, students will have greater awareness for differences and how to accommodate others’ communication styles. This is fundamental to developing successful emotional intelligence — understanding the thoughts, views and feelings of others.
