Paul Barton has a firm understanding of human nature grounded in decades of experience across industries. He knows as well as anyone how to connect the executive s mind with the employees hearts. He understands how leaders can propel an organization forward through clear, inspirational communication, and how poor communication can derail even the best of intentions. Paul relentlessly champions the idea that the best path to organizational success is communicating effectively with employees at every level not just talking at them, but listening and learning through an ongoing process. So many companies get this wrong, and their execution falls short as a consequence. They could benefit from reading Maximizing Internal Communication and thinking through how having a great communications strategy that is respectful of employees and brings them along with your vision and direction can make a huge difference. --~ Mike Bennett, Vice President, Communications, Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies
