Communication Expert Offers the Keys to Healthy, Effective Communication
All of us have found ourselves in situations where we don't know if we should bite our tongues or speak our minds. When is silence golden? When should you speak up?
In this popular book, communication expert and former pastor Michael Sedler offers readers practical guidelines for all types of conversations. He also explores
- the cost and purpose of silence
- why to check motives when talking to friends, family, and authorities
- how to ask good questions
- ways to deal with anger and resentment
- how to overcome pressure to remain silent
Using biblical and contemporary examples, this must-have book shares important strategies for improving communication skills and building better communication within the workplace, church, and home.
- Good information...not sure that it's really sticky though
The reader was great and clear with no vocal annoyances. The book had some good tips listed at the end of each chapter. Has some good scriptural examples as it goes over how some times we should speak and other times we should remain silent and that we must consider our motives in the choices we make regarding which we do. I really appreciated the example of David as someone who points out problems without putting others down and to try to gather info to make the right call. Yet I don't feel like I've gained enough understanding to feel confident to make the right call in situations I encounter. But that's what I wanted to get from the book. I bet the print book would work better for actually getting the info in a more applicable form. As something to listen to, it sounds like great advice, but it's not really absorbable because most of the advice is in lists. If you want to hear and know all of the information, I'd recommend the audiobook, but if you want to practice and apply it I'd say the print version is better. (Unless you take notes as you listen to the audiobook-- but I'm assuming most people do as I do and use audio books when they're driving or doing chores and aren't free to take notes )
- Outstanding book and approach
Excellent product. Well done.
