Everyone Communicates Few Connect


Every single one of us communicates every day, whether it be in person, on the phone, in a text message, emails, someone reading your blog or maybe even social media.  But at the end of that communication has it ever left you feeling as though you never really did connect with that person?  In John C. Maxwell's new book Everyone Communicates Few Connect: What The Most Effective People Do Differently he explains how to actually connect with those that you are communicating with.

From the moment I started reading this book I was hooked.  It amazes me that no matter if you are trying to communicate with an individual or a large group Maxwell will walk you through it.  At the end of each chapter you will learn how to apply what you just learned.   One of my favorite lines from the book is:  "Yes, people are people.  And wherever you find them, they desire to connect with others!"

Maxwell's book is divided into two parts: Five Principles and Five Practices. Some of these include finding common ground, keeping your communication simple, capturing people's interest and staying authentic in all your relationships.  This book is a great resource for anyone who needs to communicate, which is pretty much everyone.This book was provided for review by Thomas Nelson as part of their BookSneeze program.  I was not required to write a positive review.   To see my full disclosure just click here.

Sounds like a book that rings all too true. Communicating has lost its art. We live in such a fast paced world that it's all pc, text or email.
This is a book I am sure to enjoy. Great review!
