Our super-speed, electronically driven workplace has begun eroding our ability to talk and, what's more, to listen. Yet we must all keep presenting ourselves and our ideas verbally, in person, to make that final sale or get ahead. That means you need new verbal and visual approaches to everything from giving a presentation, handling a client, making an impact at a meeting, or just selling yourself.
Sonya Hamlin is one of the country's leading communication experts. She tackles the new issues in the workplace, rewriting her previous best-selling How to Talk So People Listen to provide a host of new techniques for getting what you want at work today. She covers all your workplace communication needs to discover and return to every time you have to present yourself or your ideas.
This book is written for everyone, from the entry-level employee to the executive. Hamlin delivers groundbreaking insights and solutions to some of today's major communication issues at work: negotiating the generation gaps, integrating a multicultural workforce, organizing your message and making it visual, and understanding what motivates today's audiences. She provides unique, innovative tools in an informal, practical style. This is an invaluable resource for achieving one's goals through skillful, compelling communication techniques.

Summary: Sonya Hamlin, arguably America's leading communication expert, shows us how to successfully capture people's attention so that they listen, understand, and are persuaded by your message, especially in the plugged-in, fast-paced, visually-driven atmosphere that is today's workplace. Whether making a presentation to a large audience or dealing one-on-one with a client or colleague, or communicating by E-mail, Hamlin teaches us that one of the keys to making people listen is to think about and respond to what motivates them - namely, self-interest. She then provides tools to assess others' self-interest and use it to get them to listen to your message. Hamlin also explains how to capitalize on the latest visual aids we have at our disposal today. We learn to determine what information needs or lends itself to visual presentation, and how to make visuals active, so that they serve as an extension of the speaker. In How to Talk So People Listen, you'll also find practical information on how to understand your audience, how to encourage your listeners to trust you, and how to be yourself when you're on the podium. How to Talk So People Listen is an innovative, common sense guide to effective communication and an invaluable resource for anyone looking to sharpen their communication and presentation skills.
