For this discussion in your initial post, you will create a scripted dialogue that represents at least three of the four categories of messages mentioned in the chapter. This can be a conversation you actually had with someone, or something you made up. You can follow an informal dialogue format like below.

For example- A conversation between two co-workers:

Bill: Hi Phil! I’m glad to catch you before you got into the next project. I would like to ask your advice on this new policy since you have worked with the company for so long and can provide valuable insight. (Endorsement)

Phil: Yea, well, no one else around here seems to think my opinion matters. I am just a paper pusher, so I may not be the best per—–. (complaining)

Bill: No that is not the truth. We value your input, but sometimes I am not sure if you are approachable. (interrupting)

Phil: I would probably be more approachable, if I felt valued. (defensiveness)


and taste our undisputed quality.
