Description

From asking a waiter for an unusual substitution to urging a service manager to get your car finished sooner to swaying your significant other toward a particular film or show, many of the decisions you make are decided by talking. And no matter why you engage in face-to-face talk, there's no way to insulate yourself from the dangers of miscommunication.

These 24 mind-opening lectures are your chance to learn more about how you communicate verbally, the common problems you can encounter in doing so, and how you can improve your own effectiveness - especially by overcoming the psychological and biological hard-wiring that too often gets in the way.

Professor Kehoe offers a trove of practical techniques for successful communication, from everyday interactions in the home or workplace to managing your reactions and speaking effectively in conflict- and tension-laden situations.

You'll learn how early cultural learning and deeply learned patterns of reaction in our unconscious mind enhance or undermine your ability to communicate effectively; how your sense of self develops in everyday talk during your childhood; the specific styles of talking you use in most situations; and the basic techniques of perhaps the most important and neglected aspect of human conversation, the art of active listening.

When you consider the complexities of conversation, it's a wonder that things ever work out as well as they do. But with the knowledge, strategies, and skills offered by this course, that hard-to-find effectiveness will be only a conversation away.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Interesting Lectures with a Misleading Description

The lectures are well rehearsed, excellently paced, and fascinating.
However, the topic of the lectures does not match the product's description.

The lectures are a combination of popular psychology theory and advice on conflict resolution, with a heavy emphasis on marital disputes. The scientific content is on the light side.

There is nothing on communicating with strangers or in the workplace.

That being said, the lectures are very interesting and well delivered. If you purchase this audiobook, you will likely be entertained and get a cursory education on a topic which is not discussed in the product description.

Psychology of communication

Not quite what I expected, but good information. Should have been titled Psycology of Communication.

Points Not Effectively Communicated

There were some helpful tips here and there but the course plodded with lots of platitudinizing. I felt like he could've effectively communicated everything he wanted to in 3 hours or less.

The ONE Communication Program You Want

I write about Personal Communication (Communicate Clearly NOW!). I also teach it and consult on the topic.
Dr Kehoe hits the nail on the head. Everything you need and want he offers in this Great Courses audio course.
One minor criticism I direct toward our educational system. University courses must fit into the 12-13 week semester format. As a result some subjects get cut short or extended with unnecessary material. This course has some slightly interesting, but not totally relevant and really unnecessary material. That does not detract from the blockbuster content Dr. Kehoe presents. Listen to this over and over until it sinks in. You will grow to your full potential as a result.

Not what I expected and that made it great

Here is was expecting a simple book that would tell me how to communicate with people and the usual babble. Instead the author does a wonderful job going back to our early childhood where he explains why we communicate the way we do. Then he brings with forward and shows how we are taught as children affects us as adults. Really this is a masterful piece of work! Here you will learn how your early lessons in communication will affect your self esteem, confidence and entire life! If you tie this in with the book Redefining Reality by The Great Courses Professor Steven Fimbel you really have a great understanding of how we think, act and do along with why! I would also recommend Caroline Myss book Self Esteem and the Four Agreements to give you a total picture!

Excellent lecture

This lecture teaches that effective communication is reflective communication. It gives helpful suggestions on how to communicate well with family, friends, colleagues, superiors and subordinates. I highly recommend it.

A Lot of Truth

Any additional comments?

If you are looking to boost some soft skills, this lecture is alright for it, but I would first recommend Dale Carnegie "How to Win Friend and Influence People." This lecture series has great advice on situational events, and how to approach it. If you haven't experienced Mr.Carnegie's book, stop right now and go get that book.

Fantastic lecture

I thought this started off a little slow but it quickly became very interesting and informative. I have always struggled with the ability to communicate effectively, especially when it involves expressing what I am upset about. It has caused problems in my relationships with family and at work. This book offers great advice for how to overcome this problems and how to approach a difficult situation to get a better response. I've started practicing the things I've learned from this lecture and can already see the huge impact it can have on my relationships. I highly recommend this book for anyone that struggles with expressing themselves positively and communicating effectively.

Surprise mindfulness course

The course kicks off well but ends up being far too focused on relationship communication rather than general interpersonal communication

One of the best Great Courses I've known

What did you like best about this story?

I got this largely thinking that it would help in my business communications skills, and it did. What I didn't expect was that this course is applicable to life in general, and that it would provide beneficial to my marriage.

By far the best book on communication. Really!

The book had been on my wish list for quiet a while. I did not buy it for a long time, because a) I read so many books on communication, leadership, effectiveness etc and b) the reviews weren't that great (so far 9 reviews with an average of 4,0 out of 5). Then I bought it. In my audible library there are more than 300 audio books. This clearly belongs to the top 10%. Very profound, very well explained, good examples, holistic. It is like each chapter has the value of a whole book, condensed to 30 minutes / chapter. It is a great mixture of a textbook combined with a how-to book. As valuable as Covey's "7 habits of highly effective people". Really amazing. [Rainer, Germany]

Extremes usefull to improve communication skills

This book teaches you every critical skill to effective communication and explains with real life examples and psychological research why some things work and others don't. It's one of my best buys. I wish audible would provide a script with the book.
