Discuss the difference between active voice and passive voice.

Which of these is the preferred style by business communication resources?

(20pts)
Nikki's answers

Active voice can be observed in a sentence structure in which the subject carries out the action. In passive voice sentence structure  the subject receives the action. Active sentences tend to be shorter, more precise, and easier to understand. Passive voice allows the writer to avoid personal references or personal pronouns to create a more objective tone.

Overall, business communication resources tend to recommend active voice as the preferred style. Still, the styles themselves are not the problem or challenge, but it is how we use them that matters. A skilled business writer will see both styles as options within a range of choices and learn to distinguish when each style is most appropriate to facilitate communication.

Share what you have learned from this course and how it has helped you both personally and

professionally in the area of communication.  (150 WORDS MINIMUM)

(20pts)
Nikki's answers

For much of my life chatting has been my recreation. I didn't put much thought into and believed I was naturally talented at persuasion.  My Business Communications course, however,  has made several great impressions on me in the areas of planning, forming and refining my communication even further.

At my job I have begun to take greater note in planning my e-mail, letter and presentation communications. Now I take more time to complete my work, but take pride in knowing it is typo free and easy to understand.

As an entrepreneur I must consider further the role effective communication will have on my future partnerships, negotiating and sales. I will put deeper consideration also into the customers I work with and people I hire based on their communication skills.

I look forward to refining my "Who am I" presentation and posting it to my website and social media. I also plan on refining my elevator pitch, knowing I will have to be ready in the near future.

With these major areas of my new understanding of communication affected, I move forward in my career as a business person appreciative of this course offering and more confident in my potential to communicate more effectively.
