Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
IN THIS SUMMARY
Some people are clearly much more effective at communicating than others. But why do people tune into some messages, and tune out others? Why do some messages stick? As John Maxwell, internationally respected leadership expert, says: “Talk is easy. Everybody talks. The question is, how can you make your words really count?”
In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect Maxwell draws upon his life experience, extensive research, and anecdotal examples to reveal the secret of the most effective communicators: they connect. Learning how to connect can be vital to success in relationships and careers, and Maxwell himself has worked hard to acquire this skill. In this book he suggests five principles of connecting, and five practices to becoming a communicator who connects. Believing that everyone can learn to connect with work and practice, he provides inspirational words to help communicators enrich the lives of their listeners and in the process, transform their own.
