If you're responsible for influencing another’s performance, every word matters. But some words matter most of all: verbs. Verbs are the catalysts of sentences. They bring communication to life – whether it's written or spoken. The right "power verbs" make your interactions and advice more memorable, impactful, and dynamic. Conversely, if you use dull and uninteresting verbs, your words will fall on deaf ears, and you’ll never help your clients reach their full potential.
Now, in Power Verbs for Career Consultants, Coaches, and Mentors, communications expert and business professor Dr. Michael Faulkner shows you exactly how to choose action-packed verbs that electrify your coaching, mentoring, and consulting communications, and attract your audiences like moths to a flame. Packed with hundreds of verbs and phrases, this concise, easy-to-use guide reveals why certain verbs are so much more powerful, and provides sample sentences showing you exactly how to use them.
Using Faulkner's verbs and real-world examples, you can consistently get the results you want – and empower others to achieve their most important goals.
