Similar to other reviewers, I think the communication skills in this book may be too basic for seasoned professionals but perfect for interns and other people just starting their careers. Some great takeaways The basics – Don’t ask “how can I help” rather present some options on specifically what you can do. Figure out the required time before committing to anything. When issues come up halfway through the project, focus on the 2 goals of demonstrating progress and show what you think should move the ball forward.
The 2 goals are teh make the feedback as useful as possible for you ask for a specific aspect and as easy as possible on the person giving the feedback ask ahead of time and around their schedule. During the conversation, ask for concrete ways to improve, say thank you and wait, digest and revisit. When things don’t go as planned – When raising a red flag, highlight the issue as early as possible, state the facts related to the issue and propose a solution. When asking for time off, cover your bases and get buy in to make sure it will work out.
This is starting what’s been completed, what’s still outstanding and how the task will be finished. Selling yourself and crafting your elevator pitch can make a huge difference.
Mar 24, Keith Davenport rated it it was ok. This is probably one of the worst audio-book experiences I’ve had, and oddly, I’m not sure why. Part of it, perhaps, is that from my perspective, the author over-sold herself in the beginning Ok, ok – you know what you’re talking about – can we please start the book now?

I also felt that some parts were a bit obvious. While covering the obvious might be jori for o missing some of the basics of professional human interaction, it wasn’t right for me. I found myself not looking forward to l This is probably one of the worst audio-book experiences I’ve had, and oddly, I’m not sure why.
I found myself not looking forward to listening and I love listening to audio booksjoob found myself bored and drifting. The book might work better for me at a different time in my life, but at this point, it just missed the mark. If you are having some issues with interoffice communication and relationships with clients and co-workers, I would nonetheless still recommend this book.
Jun 29, Vonetta rated it it was ok. Not what I was expecting. I got this book for free at a conference three thf ago, and I hadn’t gotten around to reading it until now. I’m starting a new job this week, so I thought, what the hey, let me finally read this thing. I expected some tips on how to be a better worker, be better organized, etc, but apparently, the key to being a better worker is communicating. I think I was doing that well enough in my previous jobs and internships, and the book confirmed it.
I don’t want to say it wa Not what I was expecting. Gdeat don’t want to say it was a waste of time reading it because it was a good refresher, but it’s definitely better read by someone just out of college and getting into the workforce for the first time. Dec 10, Robert Kozikowski rated it liked it.
The problem I had with this book that it shifted between either too general or too specific information. By too general I mean something like writing through two pages about things like the fact that jofi need to keep learning at all times.
Or that you need to help your coworkers. The most interesting information author could have written lies in between very gfeat and very general information. Jun 12, Jayme rated it liked it. I jori I read this 8 years ago when I first came to the US to work.

It would help a lot for someone wanting to thrive in America corporate culture as it gives you great tips to guide your communication style. I wouldn’t recommend for ggreat who has many years of working experience already. Apr 30, Meredith rated it it was ok Shelves: This is more about how to structure conversations at work than being “great on the job” per se.
But the first several chapters were interesting, and I did take some notes away from the book.
It’s a very easy, fast, glcikman if you want to give it a try. Jul 20, Melissajharris added it. Started off with some useful tips but then quickly got into scenarios that are only really that helpful if you work in a giant US style corporation, which I don’t.
As usual with this sort of thing will take what I think suits me and glkckman ignore the rest. May 21, Carol Read rated it it was ok. Started a new job and saw this book at the library so I checked it out.
