and then to reflect upon communication within your organization.
Before you begin this report, you will need to complete a brief on-line communication
assessment and read some information about a rather commonly recognized
communication style assessment tool called DiSC. Keep in mind that this is not meant to
define your communications style, but rather as a model to help you in gaining insight

You will then use this information to notice how the various communication styles
appear within your work place. At the same time, reflect on how your communication
style either helps or hinders your effectiveness/success at your internship. Finally, give
