Description

Communication in its widest sense is the basis of all our relationships. It is in our communication that we express our humanity, and reach out to or reject other people. Whether we intend it or not, we are all communicating all the time. We can choose HOW to communicate, but we cannot choose NOT to communicate. But effective communication requires effective methods and to ensure good relationships, we have to ensure good communication. This practical and inspirational book will help you discover various styles of interactions, which styles work well and are helpful, and which tend to work to your disadvantage in different ways. It looks at several ways of strengthening useful styles, and possible ways of getting rid of styles that don't work well. Written with warmth and good humour by a practising specialist in communicating skills, this book tells it like it is and suggests a host of techniques and methods to improve communication -- breaking the silence barrier. Detailed examples and case studies give practical application to theoretical ideas, followed by simple steps to build trust and eliminate barriers to communication.
By following the wise and practical counsel in this book, you will acquire new ways of communicating confidently, honestly and successfully -- the basis of good relationships in all walks of life.
