The Gift of the Gab: The Subtle Art of Communicating will help you develop a communication strategy that can lead to improvements in your working style. Choosing the right words, listening well and getting your message across eloquently are skills that can be perfected. By changing your communication strategy you can increase your motivation, and improve your productivity and profitability at work. This book is a corporate guide that can help you become the person you aspire to be. Excerpt: Communication cannot be perfected in a day or a month. It takes years to do it.
