From the Inside Flap
Effective communication is the foundation of personal and professional success. The better you are at expressing yourself and understanding others determines where you'll go in life. The Art and Science of Communication introduces you to a new way of understanding and using communication in the workplace to achieve better results and greater professional success.
Communication specialist P.S. Perkins uses her exclusive Communication Staircase Model to bring together the seven arenas of communication that everyone engages in on a daily basis—intrapersonal, nonverbal, interpersonal, group, public, mass, and intercultural communications. Using this model, as well as practical techniques, analogies, and formulas, Perkins teaches you how to become a more effective communicator in any setting, circumstance, or situation.

Mental preparation is an extremely important part of effective communication. Here you'll learn to improve and regulate your own messages and more accurately interpret the messages of others. In addition, you'll learn how to think and talk to yourself in a positive manner, enabling you to both convey the same positivity to others and receive it back from them.
Perkins merges the science of communication with practical, everyday communication occurrences within the workplace in an understandable, useful, and inspiring way. You'll master effective communication practices that achieve real results—the results you want. Mastering the correct rules of effective communication among employees, employers, and coworkers will create success professionally and personally.

Everything we do or gain in life and all of our successes are, in reality, based on the quality and kind of communication we engage in with ourselves and others. Good communication creates a good life. Inspiring and motivational, The Art and Science of Communication holds the ultimate key to true success. This is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master the art and science of communication for a more passionate, positive, and successful life.
