Summary

Do you always get the assignments you want? Do you know how to ask for help without sounding dumb? How to answer a question you don’t know the answer to? All the while sounding smart, capable, and competent? If the answer is no, you’re not alone. Jodi Glickman founded the communication consulting firm Great on the Job to help rising stars of the business world with the same issues. Now, for the first time, the training program that Jodi uses with her top-tier clients is available in book form. Great on the Job teaches people how to talk to one another at work, every day, in every situation, when you’re on top of your game and when you have no idea what’s going on. In these pages, you’ll get all the building blocks you need to develop more dynamic and honed communication skills:

  • 1. Dozens of helpful case studies, all based on real workplace scenarios
  • 2. Easy-to-implement strategies that are tactical and practical
  • 3. Sample language and phrases that you can adapt and use right away.

Business is, and always will be, “a personal thing.” In today’s global economy, it’s not always the smartest, hardest-working, or most technically savvy who succeed. Instead, it’s the people with dynamic communication skills - the ones who communicate effectively, strategically, and persuasively - no matter the situation. Great on the Job will teach you to do just that.

Good but not Great

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I liked this book because it had a lot of technical lessons. What I didn't like was how it was presented I believe it could've been presented as a story instead of so much like a formula.
