There’s a lot of fish in the sea, but it is the shark that sets his eye on a target and goes for the goal!
The NEW Third Edition of Communication Shark: A Human Communication Guide takes an in-depth look at the way we communicate with others and helps readers navigate the turbulent waters that are found when beginning new relationships, strengthening existing relationships, facing challenging relationships, and maintaining quality relationships.
The publication creates CommunicationSharks that are not like vicious man-eater sharks; instead, they are a focused species with a purpose to connect with others using verbal and nonverbal communication skills through personal, professional, and public interactions.
Communication happens one-on-one, in pairs, groups, or to audiences of hundreds. It takes a CommunicationShark to assume the sharky attitudes and strategies needed to make effective communication skills a reality. Stay out of the water? Not you, because you will put on your shark skin suit, better known as thick skin, and confidently move toward the life for which you have always dreamed.
Communication Shark: A Human Communication Guide includes access to a speech writing app, SpeechShark, to write, prepare, rehearse, present, and store speeches. These unique tips and tools will have you navigating effortlessly through the murky waters of public speaking and thinking like a speechwriter, logically organizing ideas, speaking with confidence, and developing the thick skin and fearless attitude of a SpeechShark!
The SpeechShark app helps readers:
- craft, draft, edit, manage, rehearse, present, and store speeches.
- design a speech presentation that is logical and effective.
- follow guidelines used by professional speech writers.
- rehearse using the notecards / timing feature before the presentation.
- speak confidently because they are prepared!
It's the newest must-have app for business professionals, students, novice and experienced speakers!
