"... provides thought-provoking insights and workable solutions to communicating with others in a changing world. Hamlin highlights challenges like understanding the generations, integrating a multicultural workforce, and communicating effectively in an impatient, visually driven society. She also offers techniques, both graphic and verbal, for reaching a given audience. Her chapter on handling one-on-one encounters is particularly helpful for both managers and subordinates. This book packs a lot of pertinent information on a practical topic. Highly recommended."
If new technology helps us reach each other faster than ever, why is it now so hard to get people to pay attention?
In her new book, HOW TO TALK SO PEOPLE LISTEN: Connecting in Today's Workplace, Sonya Hamlin warns us:
We need to dramatically re-think how we communicate given the obstacles to getting heard in today's workplace.
Hamlin, whose communications career has morphed from Emmy award winning talk show host to Harvard lecturer to coach and consultant to Fortune 100 executives, makes sure that clients adapt to the seismic shifts in the workplace.
Her book presents her strategies for success in an age where the workplace is less formal, hierarchies have flattened, different generations have completely different goals and reference points, and everyone's attention span is down to one and a half minutes…
BUT-- you can't explain, persuade or sell anything - your ideas, your product, your services, yourself-without personally presenting it and getting others to listen.
And we're getting pretty bad at doing that effectively…
Here are just some topics that she tackles in HOW TO TALK SO PEOPLE LISTEN:
