Sharpening Your Point
Winning the Battle of Communication Efficiency
Leesa Wallace & Kathy McAfee
Many professionals feel the need to provide too much information when they speak—at meetings, during updates with their managers, or trying to get a simple point across. Authors Leesa Wallace and Kathy McAfee call people like this “Wild Bores,” and they have a proven method for helping you tame them. How? Be brief. Be brilliant. Be done.
That’s easier said than done. In this concise, practical, and engaging book, they share how to deliver information that is “just enough,” not “just in case.” The step-by-step instructions are clear, entertaining and, best of all, practical. The activities, tools, and examples will help any professional be clear, concise, and compelling.
