Take control of your communication
before it takes control of you

The emphasis is on a system of communication, because authors Bender and Tracz know from their other work that systematizing your approach to virtually any activity-marketing, presenting, leading-can help you excel at the activity.
The authors believe that face-to-face communication is one of the most important and fulfilling activities humans can accomplish-but that like any activity it needs to acquire some conscious structure to proceed with success.
