From the Author:

Effective communication can be learned and achieved.
Hello Readers!

With five sisters (no brothers), it's easy to understand why I needed to improve my skills in rhetoric--the art of effective communication. In our very verbal family, it was sometimes hard for me to get heard. But, I learned how...and so can you!

The motive for writing this book came from my observation that most of the people who came to me because of problems in their marriage or at work had difficulty with the art of communicating. Oh, they knew the mechanics alright. But putting together the skills of listening and talking so that their spouse or client or friend would WANT to listen was something they had never been taught.

Think about it: Did you ever receive formal training in interpersonal communication?

Yet, as Dr. Norman Vincent Peale reminds us, "To be able to communicate effectively not only with an audience, but one to one, goes far toward determining our own success in life."

When we connect, when we really understand each other, when we learn how to listen deeply, then we are in position to experience more of the joy of what it means to be human.

It is my hope and prayer that this book will help you break down any barriers of misunderstanding between you and others. Perhaps in the process you will even begin to understand yourself better and gain greater appreciation for the reason for your existence.

About the Author:

Paul Swets mentors business owners and has served as a teacher, seminar leader, and pastoral counselor. His doctoral degree from the University of Michigan is in the field of rhetoric, the study of effective communication. Paul lives in Memphis with his wife, Janiece. They have two married children, four grandchildren, and have enjoyed more than forty years of marriage together.
