“Participating in the short but powerful communication exercises revealed to me that even with previous communication training and experience, I was using several ‘roadblocks to communication’ in my every day speaking and listening style. I began to realize why I have many of the conflicts that I have with friends, partners, and business affiliates. I was able to take home a few simple tools that dramatically altered the quality of my interactions with others. Anyone can learn these tools and improve their lives.”
– Kylie Devi, Gainesville

EXCERPTS from the book:
“To be understood is a basic human desire. To know how to effectively listen and convey understanding is a key element in expressing love and care. Illuminating this principle, philosopher Paul Tillich once remarked that the first duty of love is to listen. Listening becomes especially important when we realize that as people we come together in community. A characteristic of genuine community is that conflicts and tensions are addressed, or communicated, in ways that enhance closeness and mutual understanding. According to psychologist Rollo May, ‘Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.’”
“There is a time to give advice, a time to warn, praise, and criticize. What we actually need to do is learn how to effectively use each type of response at the right time, making careful use of each one, just as a skilled carpenter would with each tool in his toolbox. As an initial response to someone in an emotionally charged state, however, these responses can often be experienced as interfering with the flow of expression. As a drowning person needs and wants only air, a person experiencing emotion needs to feel understood.”
“This is an extraordinarily compelling and practical book on becoming a master of communication. Read it, apply the strategies and principles, and enhance your life and influence beyond what you thought possible!”
—T. Harv Eker, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
