Think about your future career and answer the following question: Why is it important in an academic setting to develop/improve business communication in terms of succeeding in the workplace?

Examples include but are NOT limited to: Chapter 5/inaccuracy in writing abilities, failure to apply positive and other-oriented tone in business messages –Chapter 6/inability to evaluate your message via the FAIR Test, Chapter 7/inability to write effective emails or handling emotions effectively in online communications.
