"Most books on communication skills focus only on skills. This book will connect all of the content through Exec|Comm's overarching philosophy: We are all more effective communicators, and therefore more effective professionals, when we focus less on ourselves and more on other people. After an introduction of a basic Exec|Comm "philosophy" about how to communicate better, the book will be divided into three main sections: Self-Empowerment, Skills and Situations, and include chapters on Understanding Your Personal Communication Style (Self-Empowerment), Building Your Reputation as a Listener (Skills), and Delivering Formal Presentations and Speeches (Situations)"--
