About the Book

One of the country’s leading communication experts shows students how to successfully capture people’s attention so that they listen, understand, and are persuaded by their message—especially in the plugged-in, fast-paced, visually-driven atmosphere that is today’s workplace.

Whether making a presentation to a large audience or dealing one-on-one with a client or colleague, or communicating by E-mail, Hamlin teaches students that one of the keys to making people listen is to think about and respond to what motivates them—namely, self-interest. She then provides tools to assess others’ self-interest and shows how to use it to get them to listen to your message.

Hamlin also explains how to capitalize on the latest visual aids we have at our disposal today. Students learn to determine what information needs or lends itself to visual presentation, and how to make visuals active, so that they serve as an extension of the speaker. In How to Talk So People Listen, students will also find practical information on how to understand an audience, how to encourage listeners’ trust, and how to be relaxed at the podium.
