I have pursued this in teaching communications, conflict resolution, voice improvement, stress management in DC for almost every government agency, teaching acting on the graduate and undergraduate levels part time for 21 years, in my own theatre company in VA for 9 years, internationally, as a life coach for 15 years, in print as a columnist, on radio with a call in show, on TV, and as a wife, mother of 4, and grandmother of 5. As President of Strategies for Living Unlimited, I am an executive leadership coach, strategic planner, organizational development specialist and career coach.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jill Kamp Melton is an expert at communication. With her vast and varied experience, she takes the reader by the hand, explains where s/he might be inadvertently missing the mark in their communications and gives practical, easy advice about how to change that. I love her suggestion to "Learn to listen as if it were the oxygen you needed to breathe." Easy read and keep it handy to refer back to it often. Every business should have one of these for each employee!
