—for our Communication Skills Tip
Whether or not a student turns in his/her
homework on time, done completely, with neat penmanship, is a function of a teacher's
Communication at the level of skill is not taught to
university education majors, in part because any communication mastery
curriculum addresses personal integrity. Mastery requires one to commit to telling the truth under all
circumstance, to give up gossiping and blaming, to master creating agreements that work,
and, to clean up (acknowledge) life's perpetrations. During such an intense
curriculum some people quit, especially when they get
angry. Quitting is a control and take-away communication. Universities cannot afford to
loose an angry student's tuition.
Teachers who intend for homework to
be turned in on time and neatly, produce that result. Communication is a function of
intention. To master communication one must be willing to study the subject of
intention. Intention as a communication variable is
not taught in university speech/communication courses, ironically it is included
in advanced sales training curriculums.
To be clear about intention one must
be willing to look at and study the premise that results equals intention.
