Assignment: Relationship Analysis
Being in a relationship can, at times, feel like you are living in a fishbowl—where it is a challenge to gain an outside perspective.

Listening skills, from active to empathetic, is a key skill to understanding ourselves and others.
In this Assignment, you complete Soft Skills Builder Assessments on Emotional Intelligence and Listening, learn about strengths and opportunities, and analyze a relationship that came apart.

Write a 2- to 3-page paper that answers the following:
Week 4: Relationship Development Stages
Communication is a dynamic process, and relationships never stay the same over time. Like changes in the weather, we come to know each other, form relationships, experience emotional storms, get wet once in a while, and, hopefully, grow as we experience conflict and joy and learn to manage the tensions we all feel and experience. Learning to recognize the signs and symptoms of coming together, or growing apart, is an important element of your interpersonal skills. Addressing tensions that pull you and others in different directions is an important and healthy part of relationship maintenance.
This week, we will identify the stages of relationships as we explore emotional intelligence as an important element of our soft skills development.
