    Avoid productivity problems when communicating

By using the advice in this book, leaders and businesspeople will be able to communicate more effectively using straightforward, lucid conversation. When you apply Booher¿s ten key strategies to your personal and organizational communications, you¿ll avoid huge productivity drains such as rework, mistakes, and misunderstandings. The author uses clever alliteration to help the reader remember the ten strategies: Correct, Complete, Clear, unClear, Consistent, Credible, Concerned, Current, Competent, and Circular. Booher not only provides the rationale of why each strategy works but specific tactics to immediately apply them to your written and verbal messages. You¿ll discover why truth-telling is key to productivity how your style may be creating a climate of paranoia what to never put in email and how to immediately engage someone in conversation. The end result: Powerful, purposeful prose that will help you obtain your communication goals.
