(foreword by Martha Mendoza) (Paperback)
By Geoffrey Tumlin
PLAY DUMB. BE BORING. DON'T SOLVE PROBLEMS. AND ABOVE ALL, DON'T BE YOURSELF.
Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from a communication expert, but these counterintuitive strategies are precisely what we need to interact productively and meaningfully in today's digital world. Our overreliance on quick, cheap, and easy means of "staying connected" is eroding our communication skills. Speed steamrolls thoughtfulness; self-expression trumps restraint. Errors and misunderstandings increase. And our relationships suffer.
With startling insights and a dash of humor, Stop Talking, Start Communicating combines scientific research with real-world strategies to deliver a proven approach to more effective communication.
