    The trick of moving from ‘average’ to ‘outstanding’ lies in ‘communication’. When you are able to articulate, present and write better than others, you move into the extraordinary league. While most of us agree to these positive effects of communication, we conveniently ignore the downside of communication breakdown, which can lead to stunted professional growth. 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. Sometimes people would succeed, sometimes they won’t. It requires constant self-monitoring and a self-conscious effort to improve with lots of practice. So the three pillars for you to do this magic are: First to put the efforts in the right direction, second to monitor yourself and the third to keep practicing.
