Introduction to Communication Skills - Look Inside

An Introduction to Communication Skills:

Good communication skills are perhaps the most fundamental building block for interpersonal relationships: relationships between people.

Without strong communication skills, it is almost impossible to make yourself understood, to understand others, or to persuade and influence effectively. This book, the first in a series on interpersonal skills from Skills You Need, aims to help you to develop your communication skills by focusing on getting the basics right: getting your message across clearly, and understanding others.

It is designed for anyone who wants to improve their communication skills.

You may find this book most helpful if you first try our Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment to find out where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and whether you could benefit from improving your communication skills. The assessment covers listening skills, verbal communication, emotional intelligence and working in groups. It is available free online - Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment, or as a hard copy from the Skills You Need website shop.

Advanced Communication Skills - Look Inside

Advanced Communication Skills:

This book is the second in a series on interpersonal skills to be published by Skills You Need, and follows on from An Introduction to Communication Skills.

It is aimed at those with fairly good basic communication skills who wish to become more skilled at more advanced techniques, such as reflecting and questioning. It shows how communication is used as a tool to build relationships, and then to manage those relationships, from being tactful, through being assertive, to communicating in difficult circumstances.

Like its predecessor, An Introduction to Communication Skills, you may find this book most helpful if you first try our Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment to find out where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and whether you could benefit from improving your communication skills. It is available free online - Interpersonal Skills Self-Assessment, or as a hard copy - book 5 of the Skills You Need guide to Interpersonal Skills.

Conflict Resolution and Mediation Workbook - Look Inside

Conflict Resolution and Mediation Workbook:

Conflicts arise in all kinds of situations, and not just internationally. From fights with your toddler through disputes between neighbours to a contested performance review at work, conflicts can emerge anywhere and at any time.

Having the skills needed to defuse and manage conflict situations is therefore essential both in and outside the workplace.

This useful workbook contains information and practical exercises to help you to develop the skills you need to resolve conflicts, and mediate between those involved.

Understanding and Developing Emotional Intelligence - Look Inside

Understanding and Developing Emotional Intelligence:

If you have ever wondered why someone who is obviously very intelligent can’t seem to get on with people, or why someone else is so good at handling difficult situations, this book is for you.

The ‘missing link’ in managing personal relationships and achieving in life seems to be emotional intelligence, a quality that is made up of a series of different personal and social skills. This book sets out the theory and practice of emotional intelligence, explaining the various components, and how to build your skills in each area. It sets out clearly how the various areas interlock and interact, to help you understand how skills in one area will help you to develop further in another. With plenty of exercises to support practical learning, and models to ensure that your learning is grounded in theory, it is a worthwhile and practical book for anyone who wants to know more about this essential area.

It can be hard to know where to start on self-improvement. You often know that you need to do something, but how and what should be your focus? Which areas are most important? And which are in need of most improvement?

Our eBooks - No Nonsense Sales Policy

Forget everything you know (or have found out) about internet marketing tactics – we’re determined to be up front and honest with you.

You won’t find the usual pages of ‘hard-sell’ nonsense here, our four selling principles are simple:

  1. Most of the information in our eBooks is freely available on the website.

    We believe the information we publish should be freely available to everybody, and it is – just browse our pages. We do, however, understand that, for convenience, it may be easier to get an eBook (like it may be more convenient to eat in a restaurant than cook your own meal). The convenience of an eBook means that you can print it, search it, read it on your kindle, tablet, laptop, smart-phone or other gadget while sitting on the beach or at the top of a mountain far away from any Wi-Fi, 4G or other networks.

    The content in our eBooks is a little different from the website content. Our eBooks read more like a book (than a series of webpages) and there are no advertisements; they also contain some extra information.

    Our eBooks have been professionally designed and published and all have ISBN numbers.

  2. Our Interpersonal Skills eBooks are exceptional value for money.

    There is no special deal ending at midnight tonight, no special incentives because you’re the 1,000th person to read this and absolutely no chance of winning an iPad. Regardless of whether you decide to buy an eBook or not, we’re not going to send you emails every day reminding you to join our ‘club’ or buy more stuff. You can of course subscribe to our newsletter if you choose to do so.

    You pay with a credit or debit card or via PayPal, we send you an eBook, that’s it, simple! There are no hidden extras, no hassle and all taxes are included in our prices.

  3. We’re not in this to make lots of money.

    We’re not going to be calling the Mercedes Benz dealer or booking a six week holiday to the Seychelles because you bought one of our eBooks. All profits go back into SkillsYouNeed enabling us to create more quality content that you, and everybody else, will have free access to, simple!

  4. No hassle...

    There is no ‘no quibble money back guarantee’ and you won’t need to remember to cancel anything after 30 days.

    If you decide to buy one of our eBooks then you have done so because you have found our online content useful and would like to have a more convenient version of it. If you haven’t found our content useful and can see no advantage of buying an eBook then don’t, simple!
