Publisher's Summary

At last week's meeting, who got heard? Was it you? If not, you need to listen to this program. The most important book on language since Deborah Tannen's You Just Don't Understand, Power Talk uses the reality of today's business world to show how each of us becomes captive to the way we talk, and why all of us need a little linguistic cross training. From sounding like an expert to generating new ideas, from the power of control to the force of original thinking, this innovative guide shows you how to:
  • Listen to yourself and hear how you come across to other people.
  • Find the right speech style for any workplace situation.
  • Practice new verbal patterns before you use them.
  • Use voice mail and e-mail to your advantage.
  • Always be heard - even among a crowd.

    Ok, but very few new facts

    The book listens easy, but one who has spend some time, either in the university or in business schools or conferences on training or communication will find there is hardly any new input to get from this book. Too bad.
