From the Back Cover

Master the vital communication skills that make leaders effective

Leaders who communicate properly and frequently--in good times as well as bad--improve performance, get results, and create a successful enterprise. In this groundbreaking guide, top leadership consultant, visionary, and coach John Baldoni explores the leadership communication styles of many of the world's most influential leaders, from Winston Churchill and Katharine Graham to Jack Welch, Colin Powell, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, and Rudolph Giuliani.

  • Develop the leadership message--determine what you want to say and do
  • Deliver the leadership message--get the message across verbally, mentally, and metaphorically
  • Sustain the leadership message--keep the message alive, fresh, and meaningful

Leaders need to do more than stand up and speak; they need to integrate communications into everything they do, address the immediate concerns and issues, and open the door to future dialogue and discovery. This book helps push that door open, so you can bring your organization to the next level.

John Baldoni is a management communications and leadership consultant and has worked for companies large and small, including Ford, Kellogg's, and Pfizer. He is the author of three other books on leadership as well as a frequent speaker on leadership topics. John also teaches in a management development program at the University of Michigan.

Format: Paperback
Baldoni's "Great Communication Secrets Of Great Leaders" is a well-researched and highly readable "how-to" of leadership communications. This author knows his material, and presents it through the interesting device of linking principles to some of the world's leading communicators. It was refreshing to read a business-centered book that focus specifically on the communication aspects of leadership, which Baldoni obviously understands quite well. As a former professional actor, I also enjoyed how the author links dynamic presentations to effective performance. This book is well worth the modest cover price. A definite "buy!"

The most successful companies learn more and more from the best practices of other successful companies. John Baldoni has selected some of the most persuasive people from the twentieth century and has analyzed and revealed their secrets so that you or I or anyone can improve our communication. It saves precious time to learn from others. Don't waste precious time by learning to communicate better by trial and error. Buy this book and learn from some of the best communicators of the twentieth century how they did and do it, so you can do the same.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book describes a few good and well known communicators, but the analysis of the different communicators and the communication theory behind it, is best defined as non-exsistent.

If it is news to you, that you need to repeat the message and be trustworthy when you communicate, then this book will probably be the right choice. If you already knew that, I will not recommend this book. This book does not go deeper than that. Unfortunately.
