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.
Lorraine Bossé-Smith runs Concept One, Inc., a corporate consulting, coaching, and training company out of Southern California. A professional fitness instructor and personal trainer, she speaks across the country on health, wellness, time management, and other topics.

“Leveraging Your Communication Style is an insightful and practical book for anyone hungry to improve how they communicate with others.”
