Letter of Advice
For this assignment, you will write a letter of advice to either a
newly engaged couple or a group of coworkers. Imagine that either the
engaged couple or coworkers hear that you are taking a course in
interpersonal communication and want advice regarding how to communicate
in their personal or professional relationships. Based on what you have
learned in this course, your personal experience, and the five learning
objectives we have covered, what advice would you give them regarding
how to communicate effectively? How can you use what you have learned in
this class to offer a couple or group of co-workers advice to have more
positive relationships? Write your paper in the form of a letter.
Please review the Sample Final Paper.
Use the list of learning outcomes to write your letter. The course
learning outcomes you will need to cover are listed below:

- Differentiate appropriate levels of self-disclosure and emotional intelligence in various relationships.
- Describe strategies for using communication techniques to resolve interpersonal conflicts.
- Analyze the impact of gender and culture on interpersonal communications.
For each of the five learning outcomes, create a separate heading
that states the learning outcome that you are addressing. Then, address
the following for each segment:
- Explain the principles of and barriers to effective
interpersonal communications. Why do the principles matter? How can your
couple or group of co-workers overcome the barriers you have listed?
- Analyze the role of communication in developing and maintaining
one’s self-concept, self-image, and self-esteem. Begin by defining each

impact the relationships of your couple or group of co-workers. What
advice can you offer to help them develop a positive self-concept or
build each other’s self-esteem?
- Illustrate the importance of self-disclosure and emotional
intelligence in various relationships. What role does self-disclosure
play in the relationships of your couple or co-workers? How can their

importance of gender and culture in relationships generally and for your
couple or group of co-workers specifically. What advice can you give to
become a better communicator based on the information you have
You must address all five of the learning outcomes and the
questions listed with those objectives. For each objective, be sure to
define key terms and relate those ideas directly to advice for your
couple or co-workers. The point here is for you to demonstrate how these
ideas can be utilized to help people in their relationships. Try to
offer specific advice they can integrate into their lives.
Begin your paper with an introductory paragraph that has a
succinct thesis statement and that previews what you plan to cover in
your paper. End with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis and
restates your key points.
You must use at least five scholarly sources to help you make your
points. At least three of these should be course readings and two
should be academic articles you have found yourself by doing research in
the University Library. If you need help doing research, visit
the University Library, which can be accessed through the
Library tab in the left-navigation menu, in your online course.
You must also draw on personal experience to offer advice or to
illustrate points. It is acceptable to use hypothetical examples and/or
your personal experiences for either your couple or group of co-workers.
We simply want to see that you can apply what you have learned to some
potential “real world” experience.
