You’d probably agree with me when I say that humans are social creatures. We crave being around other humans and have evolved into the beings we are today because of our power to communicate.

Now, what is communication? Put simply, communication comes in three forms: using words, attitude, and body language.

The first form covers verbal communication, writing, and telling stories. These are methods some of our loved ones used to tell us stories when we were growing up. Storytelling is beautiful, and it’s one of the driving forces in life for many people. Stories take us through a whirlwind of emotions and, in most cases, give us hope moving forward.

When it comes to social skills, there is perhaps nothing more important than knowing how to communicate with others effectively.

Communicating is something we continuously do, whether or not we know it. By just standing there and not doing anything, we’re already sending a message to the person looking at us. I express myself to other people differently, and so do you.

As humans, communication is ingrained into our very core. It’s something that some of us have already taken to its highest point and exhausted all potentials. While some people may think they’ve reached this level in the spoken and written language, I think there’s always going to be room for growth and improvement. It is for this reason that I’ve compiled a list of essential reads on communication.

Human beings love new things. We love to create and experiment, which is why we’re always going to find new ways to communicate.

How wonderful would it be to constantly be aware of these new methods and apply them in your daily life? If you ask me, one of the ways you can win at life is to keep your communication skills up to date. And for that, you should definitely check out my roundup of the best books on communication.

Upon becoming CEO, Nadella confronted Microsoft’s legendarily combative culture by urging his new reports to read this book, which preaches the power of empathy, self-awareness, and authenticity in collaboration in the workplace, at home, and beyond.

Comment parler à n'importe qui: 92 petits trucs pour un grand succès dans les relations

Comment parler à n'importe qui: 92 petits trucs pour un grand succès dans les relations

In my career I spend a great chunk of time dealing with clients and people in general. Our environment today is different from what it was before, we spend a lot of time communicating via electronics that we actually lost some great deal of knowledge in human communication, things that we don’t really learn at school (we actually should), but which I believe are essential to communicating with our peers. Leil did a great job in that book to explain simply those tricks of communication, some of which I am sure lots of people will think trivial and already do, but many that we probably don’t realize we can use.

The Four-Dimensional Human: Ways of Being in the Digital World

Scott’s book [...] is a complicated and interesting work of literary techno-social criticism — which came close to winning the Samuel Johnson Prize two years ago — that I found thought provoking throughout. These are just the number of pages that happened to be relevant to what I’m working on at the moment.
