Chapter 1
This first chapter uses a few compelling examples to build the argument that to be a good leader, you must be able to communicate clearly to those who need the information that you have. The outline of the top 10 assets of a good leader I found better serving than the individual survey answers that were used to build the argument.

Overwhelming good. A lot of details to be used in daily business for improving the communication behavior.

I would'nt rate any specific chapter as each chapter has its own target segment. From speeches to powerpoint presentation, a variety of tools for better communication.

“A private wealth-management firm always invited the wife of one of the company's executives to events. Everyone knew that she would be the first to say hello, to offer a hand, or to help someone find a seat. "She always acted as if she were greeting people in her own home," said the event manager. "She was better than most of our salespeople." Be first. Take the initiative. People appreciate it when you make the effort.” 0 likes
