Effective communication is not one-size fits all. Anyone who has ever tried to communicate with a person who doesn’t speak the same language understands this – talking louder doesn’t help! With this valuable guidebook, authors John Jackson and Lorraine Bossé-Smith help readers identify their communication style – be it Assertive, Animated, Attentive, or Accurate – and tailor that style to communicate ideas more effectively. Jackson and Bossé-Smith help readers to identify others’ communication styles as well, addressing such communication obstacles as:
Why does my project manager give me so much more detail than I need?
Why does my uncle take everything so personally?
Why does this person buy into my presentation when that one doesn’t?
Jackson and Bosse-Smith demonstrate that knowing how to make the most of one’s own unique communication style leads to better relationships with others and professional success.
