Module 7 Assignment 2
Publish a blog post that explains at least two communication skills that are important to embody when leading policy change and why. Then, describe your own strengths and/or opportunities for improvement in relation to these skills. Justify your response by explaining how you came to these conclusions.
Two communication skills that I consider essential to embody when leading policy change are patience and perseverance. These two skills or qualities are important because policy change takes time. It may take years or decades to occur and it is essential to be patient and to persevere in order for the change to happen. You may have an extraordinary idea for change but if you don’t have the capacity to be patient and persevere the change is never going to happen because it takes time. I think I have an excellent proposal for change in my community of practice but I also think that its completion may take some time, patience and perseverance. I am not absolutely sure that the change in policy is going to happen but I am going to try my best to use these qualities for the benefit of our children.
