I bought this and Perfect Phrases for motivating - one would have been enough. Good stuff in both - just lots of repetition or repeated ideas in both books.

5A must have!
By beccapullon
As a new manager, this book has helped me deal with several issues. I wish I had owned it several years back and some situations would have had better outcomes. I keep it close for reference at all times. It is so important to hear your employees and understand them. I work with different age groups of professionals, and I strive to communicate effectively with each of them. This book is a wonderful tool and has enabled me to communicate better! Thank you!

5Super tool for effective leadership
This book goes far beyond just providing phrases for managers and supervisors for handling the delicate tasks of telling employees that they smell, or that they are not performing up to par. This book gives ground rules for communications, and helps make both supervisors and employees feel safe in having open, honest communications about everything from job expectations for new employees to helping managers guide employees in their careers so they can reach both company and personal goals. One of the most important sections of this book addresses the different management and communication styles the different generations (usually) prefer, which minimizes friction and enhances understanding on both parts. The "new dynamics" of communications are explained and illustrated, so managers and supervisors can move beyond the tired old cliches of the past and into genuine engagement and enthusiastic participation of both employees and managers in identifying, revising, updating and reaching company goals to keep the company competitive and successful.
