How many times have you heard “communication breakdown” cited as the cause of a problem or misunderstanding? Too often we don’t know where we’ve gone wrong.
In his first book, “Communication Made a Lot Easier”, Ray Andrews explores the four essential principles of good communication – openness, honesty, frequency and two-way – using examples of communication blunders and successes from his own professional experience as a senior executive and consultant, as well as some you may know from the media.
“Communication Made a Lot Easier” demonstrates that all four principles of communication are necessary if we want to build rewarding relationships with our stakeholders, while the four steps of communication are fundamental to successfully turning communication into action.
An easy and entertaining read, “Communication Made a Lot Easier” also works as a guide for anyone working on their communication performance. Structured for easy reference, this book dissects the basics of communication, ideas that can be applied to a range of contexts – at home, work or socially.
Its message is disarmingly simple, but powerful and proven.
Ray maintains that communication is not a simple task, but can be made much easier through an understanding of its four principles and the four basic steps to follow when we communicate.
