    zumindest f r alle, die sich f r Kommunikation interessieren.Vielleicht ist Kommunikation in so weit irref hrend, dass es in keinem Text darum geht, mit seinen Mitmenschen besser auszukommen.Es gibt Texte zum berzeugen des eigenen Managements Einen Text dar ber, warum Frauen, aufgrund ihrer frauen typischen Kommunikationsmuster keine Karriere machen Einen Text dar ber, wie man authentisch, charismatisch und mitrei end pr sentiert Einen Text ber Storytelling der, je nach Anlass, andere Story Telling Muster empfiehlt Und ein Text berichte von den Kosten und unangenehmen Folgen, wenn Mitarbeiter schweigen, z.B weil Chefs sich zu hart durchsetzen usw.Ich fand die meisten Texte sehr interessant, weil sie ber die bliche Standardware Emotionale Intelligenz, 4 Seiten einer Nachricht und Gewaltfreie Kommunikation GFK hinausgehen.Die meisten hier ausgebreiteten Theorien sind durch wssenschaftliche Studien, die ausf hrlich zitiert werden, untermauert.Dadurch, dass es ehemalige Texte des Harvard Business Review sind, sind alle Beitr ge in sich abgeschlossen und schnell und leicht zu lesen.Daumen hoch.

    HBR s 10 Must Reads On Communication gives readers compelling data and practical information on the many important factors involved in helping leaders communicate The articles where professional written for leaders to pull out useful and real world principles that everyday leaders would encounter as the strive to present and express mission, vision, plans, projects or any other message they may desire to others they lead.The compilation of articles in this book spends about half of its entirety on the topic of persuasion Williams and Miller in Change the Way You Persuade, challenge presenters to understand the decision making styles of their audience and plan accordingly Knowing the general characteristics of the different styles can help you better tailor your presentations and arguments to your audience Williams recognize your power, act deviantly, and build a coalition Each of these are important steps to take but the author does not address the importance how the business culture effects whether these steps will be successful Each step here can be stopped in its tracks if the culture of your company doesn t encourage communication or doesn t have an intentional process for it However, if the company culture does encourage speaking up these steps can help an individual thrive.The next two articles, How to Become an Authentic Speaker by Nick Morgan and Telling Tales by Stephen Denning encourage speakers to be intentionally authentic in their speaking and utilize storytelling strategically in a message or presentation Morgan s focus is to help the reader see how your intent is crucial when you plan to be open with your audience, connect with your audience, passionate about your topic, and how you listen to your audience These intentions assist a communicator and will help them come across as authentic Denning s article helps to guide a leader to use the power of narrative in a business setting He cautions an individual to avoid using lengthy details that will make executives eye glaze over The author takes an approach that storytelling can help bring alive certain situations and bring a creative flare to what might be otherwise boring data Denning states, Storytelling can translate those dryad n abstract numbers into compelling picture of a leaders goals 2004, p 118.Elsbach s article, How to Pitch a Brilliant Idea tends to focus on the catcher than the pitcher She suggests the catcher, those receiving the presentation, categorizes pitchers into showrunners smooth and professional , artists quirky and unpolished , and neophytes inexperienced and na ve The author suggests that each pitcher show encompass one of these three categories when the pitch something to their executives It is hard to imagine that an executive would want, as this author titles, a neophyte pitching an idea Inexperienced, na ve and ignorant are not necessarily the best quality traits for someone pitching a brilliant idea.In The Five Messages Leaders Must Manage, Hamm challenges leaders with five messages that leaders should portray in order to avoid miscommunication Hamm articulates how important a clear, focused vision can be It will be communicated from a leader to those he she manages will be impacted by the organizational hierarchy, financial results, the leader s understanding of his or her job, time management, and the corporate culture When these messages can be communicated throughout the organization it forces top to bottom employees to unify and communicate the same thing together.In the final article of the book, Taking the Stress Out of Stressful Conversations, Weeks persuasively boils down stressful conversations to taking on three different forms I have bad news for you , What s going on here , Your attacking me Weeks article acknowledges there are times, especially in conflict or stressful times, that how we react, what and how we speak, and our preparation will determine successful communication.Overall, HBR s 10 Must Reads On Communication is very beneficial in helping leaders to communication with clarity and passion I would recommend this book to not just business leaders but for anyone that is looking to better communication in their specific area The principles in this book can be used and achieved in many different environments One critique on this book would be to limit the articles on persuasion The topic of communication is extremely important and widely written on I would like to see topics in the ten articles be different from the each other.

    An inevitable fact is that there will always be conversations which will bring about stress, the key is figuring out how to deal with these dialogues when they come up Weeks 2001 article highlighted in HBR s 10 Must Reads on Communication speaks to the three main communication errors individuals face in the workplace and also addresses three ways to counteract possible aversions that this stress brings about Weeks 2001 examines the types of stressful conversations one could have She sums them up as the following introductions into a potential altercation I have bad news for you, What s going on here , and You are attacking me She suggests that these are three of the phrases that lead to individuals feeling offended, confused and frustrated She goes on to give three examples, one for each of these scenarios, which help frame her position I believe she does a great job at making her points in an easy to understand and intriguing way We all know how important communication is whether in a marriage, between friends and especially within the workplace I ve often heard the phrase uttered, Communication is key, to which I would have to agree In order to effectively communicate Weeks suggests three ways in which we can prepare ourselves for a stressful conversation A good start is to become aware of your own weaknesses to people and situations Weeks, 2001 Understanding your vulnerabilities is an important way to know how you will react to a certain situation Once you know what your danger zones are, you can anticipate your vulnerability and improve your response Weeks, 2001, p 173 The second suggestion to prepare would be to rehearse with a neutral friend, someone who is not going to judge you and someone who does not have the same communication style, this way it ensures impartiality Weeks, 2001, p 173 One quote that I really appreciated that brought the point home was when your friend says Tell me how you want to say this, an interesting thing happens your phrasing is often much better, much temperate, usable Weeks, 2001, p 174 Then thirdly, be aware of body language Nearly half of what is said can be interpreted through what you aren t saying After preparations for the conversation have been established Weeks proposes three additional ways to manage the actual conversation She recommends honoring thy partner, disarming by restating intent and fighting the tactics not the people Weeks, 2001 Observing these theories while having a conversation can keep the stress to a minimum People think stressful conversations are inevitable And they are But that doesn t mean they have to have bad resolutions Weeks, 2001, p 179 Weeks 2001 article is comprehendible in terms of taking away easy, tangible points that can be implemented immediately I really valued her statement that We need to learn communication skills, in the same way that we learn CPR well in advance, knowing that when we need to use them, the situation will be critical and tense Weeks, 2001, p 176 In order to implement these new skills within my life I have come up with a heuristic approach that I could incorporate whenever I face a stressful conversation Always remember to alleviate stress by Speaking honorably to your partnerTuning the phrasingRehearsing with a friendEvaluating how you would reactStating your intentionsSeparating tactics from peopleWith these ideas in mind and developing a greater self awareness of vulnerabilities anyone can walk away from a stressful conversation feeling confident that they didn t explode and kept it professional The advice and tools described in this article can be helpful in unilaterality reducing the strain in stressful conversations Weeks, 2001, p 180 If you want an easy to grasp read on how to manage a stressful conversation I would highly recommend giving this your attention.ReferencesWeeks, H., 2001 Taking the Stress Out of Stressful Conversations InHarvard Business Review Press Eds , HBR s 10 Must Reads on Communication pp 165 180 Boston, Massachusetts Harvard Business School Publishing Corporation.
