1. Introduction:
Introduce your strategic communication plan in an engaging and interesting way.
Mention your name and the date of your recording (important!). Define interpersonal
communication in a way that orients your audience (i.e. your instructor) toward the main
focus of your plan. Give a brief preview of the presentation’s key points.
2. Behavioral blend and background:
Briefly describe your behavioral blend as identified in your Uniquely You profile,
emphasizing how it influences the way you communicate and relate to others. Also, share
about how your background and identity influences your communication patterns, both
positively and negatively. This section provides a backdrop for understanding you as a
communicator and the challenges and opportunities you have faced.
3. Communication barriers:
Disclose and discuss the most significant interpersonal communication barriers and issues
that you have discovered throughout this course. Define, explain, and exemplify how
these currently hinder you and negatively impact your relationships.
4. Goal and strategies:
Articulate a goal that you intend to reach by implementing this plan. This goal should be
succinctly formulated as a single phrase and must not be overly broad (e.g. “become a
counselor” or too vague (e.g. “enhance my communication”). Share why this goal is
important within the context of your life and/or career. Then disclose strategies that will
allow you to reach this goal and remove the barriers discussed previously. For example, if
your goal involves becoming a more empathic communicator at your workplace,
developing active listening and reflecting skills might be appropriate strategies. If your
goal is to impactfully mentor youth in your community, using appropriate levels of
assertiveness, genuineness, and self-disclosure might be important skills to master.

5. Implementation:
Formulate specific action steps for applying the strategies described in the previous
section. In doing so, describe specific concepts, principles, models, and/or techniques that
have provided you with insight and understanding throughout this course. Actions may
include techniques you will practice, ideas you will continually reflect on, things you will
do differently, etc. Explain how implementing your plan will make your goal a reality.
Address also how you will evaluate your progress and hold yourself accountable.
6. Conclusion:
Briefly review the main points of your strategic interpersonal communication plan and
end with a memorable closing statement or quote.
Your PowerPoint presentation must include between 15 and 20 slides that have a consistent look,
font usage and style throughout. The slides must effectively and professionally communicate key
points and provide visual support for your oral presentation, rather than “stand alone” with an
over-abundance of text. Use images, graphic elements, and illustrations to add interest, but make
sure these do not distract from the overall content. Use the last one or two slides for a complete
APA-formatted bibliography.
