Huge grammatical error

You wrote "communicate how you effectively diffused the situation", that means you're spreading the situation. I believe you wanted to write defuse. You wrote the opposite of what your intention was.

Thank you for your comment. "Defuse" does mean, literally, to remove a fuse from (as in an explosive), and is often used in the context of "defusing" a situation. However, several sources say that a situation can also be "diffused," with the definition being to weaken or make less intense. (See American Heritage Dictionary at ahdictionary.com, OxfordDictionaries.com.)

I agree that defusing the situation would be the appropriate term to use.
