Textul de pe ultima copertă

Communication issues challenge managers all the time. You could be managing a friend who's become a direct report. Maybe you're managing people with more experience than you. Or perhaps you have to deal with office politics, generational differences, or coworkers with poor communication skills. The bottom line is that if you want to keep your department running smoothly, you'll have to deal with any number of problematic communication situations head-on.

The Communication Problem Solver brings you quick and easy techniques you can use to resolve the people problems that threaten to derail productivity at work. You'll learn how to:

get people to understand your expectations - ask questions that uncover the facts and help you meet business objectives - sharpen your listening skills to grasp information better in every conversation - provide feedback that gets results - lead collaborative interactions and discussions - delegate more effectively - ensure productive perform-ance discussions by replacing judgments with observable facts - and build trusting relationships with your direct and indirect reports, bosses, and coworkers

Communication issues can seem daunting because often what's said aloud is not the intended message, so communication gets complicated and can trigger emotional responses. But The Communication Problem Solver lets you redefine these challenges in factual terms and then use proven, commonsense methods to clear them up once and for all. Packed with real-world management examples and featuring a handy list of common communication problems with smart solutions, this no-nonsense guide gives you the tools and skills to solve even the thorniest of people problems . . . and to prevent challenging communication situations from ever becoming problems.
