Effective communication skills are the key to success in life, work and relationships. Without effective communication, a message can turn into error, misunderstanding, frustration, or even disaster by being misinterpreted or poorly delivered. Communicating effectively is not always easy. You have to make sure that your message is received as you intended and work to understand the messages that others are sending you.
Many people fail to get what they want for no other reason than the inability to effectively communicate with others. In his book entitled Communication Skills Made Easy: Know What to Say to Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere with Supreme Confidence, Persuasion and Charisma, author Carl McKay gives you the blueprint that you need to effectively and successfully communicate with others. Throughout this book he focuses on the various situations in which solid communication is essential for success. Divided into seven chapters discussing the various situational aspects of human interaction, this work is designed for those who can't seem to get their point across. This book looks at communication in the workplace, in business, in love, and in a few more specific situations such as travel and family vacations.
Many people take time for the gym. Others set aside hours to get a perfect tan. But how many people do you know who are invested in learning to communicate well? This underappreciated art is a gateway to success in all walks of life, so put some time and thought into it - it will be of great help to you. You may find that the gift of gab is easier to come by than you thought!
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I was expecting tools, tips, strategies for improving communication skills. All I got was lecturing, negativity and cultural criticism. No solution/s offered.
Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Mckay again?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The tone was lectured... consistent with the content. Not her fault but hard to separate from content.
Any additional comments?
The subtitle is 100% misleading: Know what to say to anyone, anytime, anywhere with supreme confidence, persuasion and charisma?????If the book addresses this in any way shape or form... it must have been buried in the silly irrelevant metaphors.
