Publisher's Summary

"The gold standard for communication training programs." (USA Today)

Business communication sucks. At each meeting and presentation, we are inundated with information, leaving us thirsting for inspiration. Sure, we will check off an action item because we have to...but what if we were actually inspired to do something? What if we were so moved that we wanted to do it?

Leaders must earn the license to lead. Not by expertise, authority, or title alone, but by influence. In Communicate to Influence, you will learn the secrets of the Decker Method - a framework that has been perfected over the past 36 years. Ben and Kelly Decker add fresh insights to these proven principles so you can ignite change and inspire action. Discover:

  • The five white lies of communicating: Learn which barriers prevent you from getting better
  • The communicator's road map: Use a tool to visually chart what type of communication experience you create
  • The behaviors of trust: Align what you say with how you say it to better connect with your audience
  • The Decker grid: Shift your message from self-centered, all-about-me content to relevant, audience-centered content that drives action

You are called to communicate well. Not only on the main stage, under bright lights, but every time you speak with your colleagues, your clients, and other stakeholders. It's time to learn how. Stop informing. Start inspiring.

Ben Decker and Kelly Decker are the leading experts in the field of business communication.
