The best books on kickass communication

I’m passionate about helping people to better manage their internal state so they can control their external behaviors under high-pressure situations.

My expertise is on the following topics found in the books I’ve chosen: power/status, influence, leadership presence, setting boundaries, speaking clearly & concisely, emotional mastery, improvisation, compassion, and empathy for self and others.

As a communication coach and trainer, I work with clients to neutralize power dynamics for more positive exchange, leaving both parties feeling safe and respected.

The Ego Tango
What it’s about?

This is a collection of real-life stories I tell in my workshops as a communication coach.

Each story demonstrates either an external behavior or an internal mindset to help people become more effective and productive in their personal and professional relationships.

My hope is that you’ll be able to appreciate their humour and humanity while extracting the gems, applying them to your everyday interactions experiencing fewer hassles, and have more satisfying relationships.
