9780071424851: How to Use Power Phrases to Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say, & Get What You Want

Easy-to-master techniques for more effective communications in all areas of life

In this breakthrough guide, communication guru Meryl Runion explains why effective communication is more than just a business tool. It is also the key to happier, healthier relationships, and greater personal fulfillment and business success. In How to Use Power Phrases to Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say, & Get What You Want she introduces readers to the concept of power phrases--short, focused expressions that let people be direct and to the point without seeming brusque or nasty. In clear, down-to-earth language, illustrated with numerous vignettes and real-world examples, Runion teaches readers how to:

  • Say what needs to be said without fear of misinterpretation or creating negative emotional responses
  • Master six basic methods for crafting power phrases for any setting and every social, professional, or interpersonal situation

From the Author:

Did you ever want to shake someone and ask, "Why didnít you say anything?" They might have responded, "I didnít want to hurt your feelings"í or, "No one else was saying anything", or "I didnít know what to say". Perhaps they said, "I didnít want to be a tattle tale" or "Youíre the boss and I didnít think it was appropriate", "I donĎt like discussing things like that" or "I figured you knew".

Who cares why no one spoke the Simple Truth if you just lost your best employee, friend or customer because no one told you something essential? There is no comfort in knowing why someone stayed silent if you did something foolish, if someone you trust was robbing you blind or if you made a wrong decision, and someone knew and didnít say anything.

Staying silent is so common we often do not realize there is another way. That is why PowerPhrases are essential. They provide the words to say what needs to be said. Failure happens one Poison Phrase at a time. Success happens one PowerPhrase at a time. I invite you to stand up, power up and SpeakStrong.

From the Back Cover:

Get to the point! Learn how to use Power Phrases to say what you mean...and get what you want.

If you have ever walked away from a situation because you didn't know what to say, or you didn't know what to say but you spoke anyway, you know about all the stress, confusion, wasted time, missed opportunities, and hurt feelings you could have avoided if only you'd said the right thing at the right time.

Now internationally acclaimed executive coach and communication guru Meryl Runion introduces you to a powerful, easy-to-master communication technology that lets you say what you mean, mean what you say, and get what you want--at home, in the office, and in every social and interpersonal setting. In a lively narrative, crackling with wry wit and loving observations of people and their foibles, Runion teaches you six basic methods for crafting Power Phrases--short, focused expressions that are direct and to the point without seeming brusque or nasty. Once you've masterd the art of using PowerPhrases there is no limit to what you can accomplish. In no time you'll be wielding Power Phrases and you will:

  • Learn a new language that will open up honest dialogue instantly
  • Confidently say what needs to be said without fear of misinterpretation or negative emotional responses
  • Resolve sensitive situations quickly and effectively
  • Avoid being taken advantage of, ignored, passed over, or undervalued
  • Communicate your needs and desires and get the results you want
  • Nip harassment in the bud
