Everett Chasen and Robert Putnam
The Manager's Communication Toolbox
ASTD Publications, 2012
Managers must communicate by using a few basic tools, including style, power and authority.
The ability to communicate well is a sure path to a top management job. Corporate communication professionals Everett Chasen and Bob Putnam explain how to convey information with style, clarity and precision. The authors conducted extensive interviews and research, and apply to their own work the rules they detail to readers. Their editorial presentation is jam-packed with solid information and helpful suggestions. While not particularly innovative, it fits capably within the mainstream of manuals in the field and provides an efficiently compact, useful recap of the main points managers need to know. getAbstract recommends these instructions to anyone inside or outside the business world who needs to communicate well.
