Book Description

6 Jun 1997 Effective
Do you use words to their maximum effectiveness, to persuade and be really heard? Listening is maybe the most elusive of the communication skills. Do you hear what people are really saying? You can write, but do your letters and reports really get over what you want and need to say? John Adair offers guidance to improve your natural capacities; he also goes beyond these basics looking at such derivations as: presentations, giving and receiving criticism, communicating and participating in meetings, and communication between departments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Communication explained 30 Oct 2011
A good overview for anyone who has to think laterally about how we communicate and how important it is. There are of course many more ways to communicate than we think, and this book helps us understand not only their importance, but the overall effect of good communication, and of course, bad.
