This textbook is a concise guide to help current and future managers become better leaders. By virtue of their organizational position, managers have “position” power over some members of their organization. They can hire and fire, sanction a bonus or promotion, and assign both desirable and undesirable tasks. However, managers who are great leaders have an additional source of power that is not related to their official position within the organization. Great leaders influence people through “personal” power—their knowledge and behavior. The system of leadership communication introduced in this book is designed to increase your own personal power.

There is a need for general theoretical principles describing/explaining effective design -- those which demonstrate "unity" and enhance comprehension and usability. Theories of cohesion from linguistics and of comprehension in psychology are likely sources of such general principles. Unfortunately, linguistic approaches to discourse unity have focused exclusively on semantic elements such as synonymy or anaphora, and have ignored other linguistic elements such as syntactic parallelism and phonological alliteration. They have also overlooked the non-linguistic elements -- visual factors such as typography or color, and auditory components such as pitch or duration. In addition, linguistic approaches have met with criticism because they have failed to explain the relationship between semantic cohesive elements and coherence. On the other hand, psychological approaches to discourse comprehension have considered the impact of a wider range of discourse elements -- typographical cuing of key terms to enhance comprehension -- but have failed to provide general theoretical explanations for such observations.

This volume uses Gestalt theory to provide general principles for predicting one aspect of coherence -- that of continuity -- across the entire range of discourse elements, and also to outline the relationship between cohesion and coherence. The theoretical core of this book argues that the cognitive principles that explain why humans "sense" unity in a succession of sounds (a whole musical piece) or in a configuration of visual shapes (a complete object) are the basis of principles which explain why we "sense" unity in oral, written, and electronically produced documents.
What is the one quality that all successful people have in common?

They have mastered the art of dealing with people!

Let this book show you how to:
Achieve your goals Handle the human ego Become a master conversationalist Make others feel good about themselves And much more!
Skill
with people is the one essential ingredient for success and happiness
at home and in business. "The Art of Dealing With People" gives you the
skills to take your people skills to a level that you never thought
possible!

Skill in human relations is similar to skill in any
other field, in that success depends on understanding and mastering
certain basic general principles. You must not only know what to do, but
why you're doing it.

As far as basic principles are concerned,
people are all the same. Yet each individual person you meet is
different. If you attempted to learn some gimmick to deal successfully
with each separate individual you met, you would be face with a hopeless
task.

Influencing people is an art, not a gimmick. When you
apply gimmicks in a superficial, mechanical manner, you go through the
same motions as the person who "has a way," but it doesn't work for you.


The purpose of this book is to give you knowledge based upon an
understanding of human nature: why people act the way they do. The
methods presented in this book have been tested on thousands of people
who have attended my human relations seminars. They are not just my pet
ideas of how you should deal with people, but ideas that have stood the
test of how you must deal with people. That is, if you want to get along
with them and get what you want at the same time.

Yes, we all
want success and happiness. And the day is long past, if it ever
existed, when you could achieve these goals by forcing people to give
you what you want. And begging is no better, for no one has respect for,
or any desire to help, the person who constantly kowtows and literally
goes around with his hand out, begging other people to like him.

The
one successful way to get the things you want from life is to acquire
skill in dealing with people. Download now and you will learn how.
