This book is for people who want to change the world. Here's the challenge: it's impossible to change the world all by yourself. To have an impact, you need to communicate. In these pages, we share with you what we've learned over 30 years as professional communicators and advisors to leaders of global organizations. We seek to move each client from competence to excellence. As authors, our goal is to give you the tools you need to become the most effective and powerful communicator you can be. We want you to become a catalyst for transformation. We want you to discover that you have the potential to change the world.
