News & Opinion: Everyone Communicates Few Connect

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 7:22 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In this age of social media, where talking to people, both friends and strangers, is easier than ever, the dam has literally burst on information. With that overload comes knowledge, but something's missing. That missing piece is what John C. Maxwell's new book Everyone Communicates Few Connect: What the Most Effective People Do Differently addresses, not just from the standpoint of how we communicate online, but on the phone, in writing, in front of an audience, and face-to-face.

So, it's a book for everyone. And the good news is, that we're offering 45% off for everyone, any quantity from now through May 7, 2010. It's a good opportunity to pick this one up, and if you don't think it's for you, just remember the last time you spoke to a room of people, talked to your boss about an idea, or tried to promote something via 140 characters, and ask yourself, "Did I connect with them?"
