In business today there is nothing worse than being overlooked. It is five times more negative than direct criticism and the bad feeling it engenders can last for weeks, eating away at our confidence, making us feel irrelevant...In Be Understood or Be Overlooked, Andrewartha outlines the home truths of workplace psychology so you can communicate effectively. He takes us on a journey of self-discovery, revealing the critical differences we face in understanding each other...Using a combination of the latest organisational theory and tested communication methodology, Andrewartha offers advice to help both the individual and organisation thrive...'We all know good communication is essential to good relationships - at work and home - yet how many of us get it right? Communication Mastery is written with insight, humour and a deep knowledge of the subject. It could help change your life.' - Anne Deveson, Author and filmmaker..'A practical and powerful guide enabling managers to develop excellent communication skills at work.' - Peter J. Dowling, Professor of International Management + Strategy, University of Canberra..'Oh, that explains it. That's where we're different. Not only have I found that I respect the other guy's communication, but I now know how to demonstrate and to acknowledge my style as different too.' - Richard Maurovic, Artist.
