A wall of silent resentment shuts you off from someone you love....You listen to an argument in which neither party seems to hear the other....Your mind drifts to other matters when people talk to you.... "People Skills" is a communication-skills handbook that can help you eliminate these and other communication problems. Author Robert Bolton describes the twelve most common communication barriers, showing how these "roadblocks" damage relationships by increasing defensiveness, aggressiveness, or dependency. He explains how to acquire the ability to listen, assert yourself, resolve conflicts, and work out problems with others. These are skills that will help you communicate calmly, even in stressful emotionally charged situations. "People Skills" will show you * How to get your needs met using simple assertion techniques * How body language often speaks louder than words * How to use silence as a valuable communication tool * How to de-escalate family disputes, lovers' quarrels, and other heated arguments Both thought-provoking and practical, "People Skills" is filled with workable ideas that you can use to improve your communication in meaningful ways, every day.
People Skills by Robert Bolton is a great book to teach anyone how to effectively communicate. My lecturer at university is always quoting it, when we talk about communicating in the work place and to students. She even goes as far as giving copies of Bolton’s book as presents to her friends, not sure if I’d go that far but it is a great book, worth a read.
