PBC 102: They’ll Eat Out of Your Hand If You Know What to Feed Them: The 30 Essential Communication Skills that Give Highly Successful Career Professionals Their Edge
A Program and Book Combination Package
Every day, we enter into a complex communication dance in which we try to lead and have others follow us. For example, we want to gain our client’s approval, close a sale, get a promotion or raise, attract a top-notch job application to our company, get a stubborn colleague to listen to us, solicit a referral, negotiate a discount, or have our assistant take on a disagreeable task. How successful we are in getting others to do as we wish can be chalked up to a lot of things – charisma, charm, authority, leverage, sympathy, empathy, even threats. But beneath all of that, how well we get others to do as we wish relies upon one thing: our ability to communicate.
The challenge is that most of us don’t have speech writers or publicists or wordsmiths behind the scenes who put just the right words into our emails or our mouths. We must be one-stop communication shops – communication virtuosos, if you will. That means that we must be proficient in as many as six distinct skill areas. These are: speaking, writing, reading, listening, nonverbal communication, and visual and digital communication.
