Get your message across the right way with clear communication
Message Not Received provides the tools and techniques that make an effective writer and public speaker. Particularly on topics related to data and technology, effective communication can present a challenge in business settings.
This book shows readers how those challenges can be overcome, and how to keep the message from getting lost in the face of mismatched levels of knowledge, various delivery media, and the library of jargon that too often serves as a substitute for real, meaningful language.
Coverage includes idea crystallization, the rapidly changing business environment, Kurzweil′s law of accelerating change, and our increasing inability to understand what we are saying to each other.
Rich with visuals including diagrams, slides, graphs, charts, and infographics, this guide provides accessible information and actionable guidance toward more effectively conveying the message.
Today, few professionals can ignore the tsunami of technology that permeates their lives, advancing far more rapidly that most of us can handle. As a result, too many people think that successful speaking means using buzzwords, jargon, and invented words that sound professional, but don′t actually communicate meaning.
This book provides a path through the noise, helping readers get their message across succinctly, efficiently, and effectively.
- Adapt your approach for more effective communication
- Learn the critical skill of crystallizing ideas
- Tailor your style to the method of delivery
- Ensure that your message is heard, understood, and internalized
It doesn′t matter whether you′re pitching to a venture capitalist, explaining daily challenges to a non–tech manager, or speaking to hundreds of people jargon–filled word salad uses a lot of words to say very little.
Better communication requires a different approach, and Message Not Received gives you a roadmap to more effective speaking and writing for any audience or medium.

What do you do when the queen bee demands to know why you haven’t written the report she never asked for? Or when the colleague who you thought was your friend takes sole credit for the project you worked on together?
It’s hard to speak out about catty behavior, especially when it’s insidious or goes on behind your back. But you can usually sense when something’s “off”—particularly if you’re completely stressed out and hate the job you used to love. Let’s face it, ladies: there are plenty of nasty, manipulative, and destructive women in the workplace who fly under the radar while ruthless alpha males get all the bad press.
In Working with Bitches, psychologist Meredith Fuller offers practical advice on how to recognize and manage difficult women at work. Dr. Fuller combines actual cases with tips that women can use right away to defuse even the worst situations. Readers will learn how to deal with the eight types of “mean girls” they might face in the office and find powerful reassurance that they are not alone.
