Instant Communication Skills is another short book from The Instant-Series, dedicated to self-help books that make a difference. Are you communicating effectively? If not, you could be crippling yourself in all your interpersonal relationships and interactions, causing problems at work, home, and even online. One of the most frequent problems with communication results from distancing yourself from the recipient of your communication. For example: in the office it’s often more effective to pick up the phone or even walk over to someone to talk rather than emailing. Emails are frequently misunderstood.

The Instant-Series has outlined many factors in good communication such as thinking on your feet, listening, and body language. Did you know that someone will accept what you are saying more readily if you mirror their body language? For instance, you can fold your hands on your lap if they are doing this. I found that there are many things I do that may not promote the best communication. For instance, I don’t often stand around chatting with co-workers since I feel that could be perceived as laziness. However, it could instead be perceived that I am aloof. A brief period of chatting actually helps to build camaraderie in the office, which will help any team to work better together. It can also make people like you better in a personal way. If they like you and think you are a nice person, they are more likely to be friendly to you, making your day more enjoyable as well. Instant Communication Skills is a book that can really make a difference.

As I am self-teaching my way into a different career path I read Instant Communication Skills: how to Improve Communication Skills Instantly! I have been truly blessed to have this book in my digital library. I am going to be needing the reminders this book provides. It is simple to read, and even easier to re-read. I never knew so many factors are involved with communication. One might think it was words, but it is so much more than words. It is the tone that rings when a person speaks those words. This helped me learn to watch body language. However, you need more concise and clear communication if you are going to be working online.

The ease of reading this book really helps one engage with the content. Teachers, employers, and parents are the role models of future generations. This book should be given to all students, employees, and managers to create a world where communication is no longer blocked by bad attitudes, bad habits, and bad words.

This book gives you the skills needed to learn how just the position of your body and the sound of your voice can actually bring peace to the discussion versus continued miscommunication. These skills help humans communicate even if they do not share the same words. Children should be taught this as they grow into young adults. Families that can communicate in a positive manner are happier. My daughter and I read this book together. She was so glad she could understand it. It was a learning experience full of smiles and hope that tomorrow she can tell her friends what she learned.

In today’s world, communication skills are so important and essential to succeeding in whatever career that you choose to pursue. I’m in the communications field and I still feel as though I need some brushed up at times after being away from people for a while.

Sometimes I find that I have problems getting my point across or having my messages understood. I noticed that in meetings, sometimes people have difficulty understanding what I am trying to say and it is sometimes hard to get them to understand my ideas. I decided to pick this book up in an effort to improve my communications skills.

Through this book I learned a quick and easy thing that helped to make my communications skills more attractive. There are some great ideas in this book on the best practices of how to be a better communicator. I applied some of these and they do worked, such as I have noticed I'm willing to talk to more people.

When you have that eagerness to wanting to communicate with people they take you more seriously and listening to what you say.

One extra bonus to this book is that it also covers written communication and how to be effective with it. I feel like the book can really help anybody improve their skills. It's quick, it's short, and to the point for anybody needing a little brushed on.
