Description : This edited volume addresses the critical psychoanalytic issue of effective listening. This issue has been discussed widely in the literature but most often from the standpoint of technique.

How to Influence People will empower you to become a potent and positive influence in the lives of those around you without using a position or title.

Description : If you are among those who tremble and break into a sweat at the thought of facing an audience, or hesitate in offering an opinion, you are not alone. When this happens a few times, we begin to feel that spoken communication is not our forte and we begin to avoid it as far as possible, and when we cannot avoid it, we go through it anyhow, reconciled to not making much of an impact. Prof Meenakshi Sharma in Speak With Impact shows you how to get results and to leave a mark. Interactive, accessible, and with a host of useful examples, Speak With Impact equips you to sharpen your ability to leave an impact on others with your every interaction..
Description : The words of the wise, famous, or simply experienced, can have a profound impact upon the behaviors and attitudes of others. Often, we underestimate the impressions made by carefully chosen words; words that have the power to embolden, encourage, uplift, and motivate one to greatness. With these concepts in mind, I have undertaken the task of composing this book with the intent to inspire young people to make better choices in their daily interactions with others. This will help build strong, permanent character traits that will help guide them to success and happiness. Throughout this written work are direct quotes of learned individuals, whose opinions and philosophies have spanned generations, yet have lost none of their intrinsic value as words to live by. The purpose behind using quotes is two-fold: 1.) To supplement the lesson being taught, and 2.) to inspire the reader to pay close attention to the words of others; in effect, to be an effective listener. I might also stress that, the quality of some one else’s words is not determined by whether they are famous or not. Wisdom can be harvested from the most humble of individuals, as well as the most celebrated. It is not confined to those known for the greatest intellect, but it is found within a vast array of socio-economic circles - among the great and the small. What matters most is whether one’s words are meaningful and if they can be of beneficial to others. If you would like more information about these programs, visit www.thequote-online.com.
