WASHINGTON (7 April 2017) — More than 80 percent of employees cite a lack of communication as a reason for project failure. If your team is having trouble completing projects, look at improving your communication skills.
Reading is one of the best avenues to better communication. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the time to read books anymore.
The solution is “Staying Sharp.” That is, IEEE-USA’s free audio book, “Staying Sharp – Volume 1: Staying Sharp Inside Your Company.”
Audio books offer many of the same benefits that reading does, with the added bonus of improving listening skills. They are portable and download easily on your mobile device.
So go ahead and plug in your headphones and improve your communication ability without compromising your lifestyle.
This audio e-book is the first of its kind from IEEE-USA, and it’s free for a limited time! Download your book today and start improving your communication skills now.
In this award-winning e-book, veteran engineering professional and educator Harry T. Roman shares his thoughts on how engineers can enhance their non-technical skills for career success. The audio format allows you to listen to more than a dozen proven strategies to incorporate on the job.
“Never forget that during your ‘sharpening’ process, the soft skills are just as important as the hard skills,” Roman says. “And that includes the people you lead and manage.”
The “Staying Sharp” companion e-book (non-audio) is available for $7.99 for members and $9.99 for non-members.
IEEE-USA serves the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of nearly 190,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.
