Use "power verbs" to make all your leadership and management communications more memorable, impactful, and dynamic – and get the results you want! If you're responsible for building teams, improving performance, and delivering results, 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. Conversely, if you rely on dull and uninteresting verbs, your guidance and directions will fall flat – and so will your career. Now, in Power Verbs for Managers and Executives, communications expert and business professor Dr. Michael Faulkner shows you exactly how to choose action-packed verbs that electrify your communications, and attract your team like moths to a flame. Using Faulkner's real-world examples, you can energize your workforce, galvanize the action you need to succeed, and build well-oiled teams that consistently deliver maximum productivity and performance.
