About the Books:

Ask Outrageously! The Secret to Getting What You Really Want by Linda Byars Swindling

Asking outrageously does not mean being obnoxious or taking advantage of others. It means making a bold ask—and being smart. In a culture that encourages sensitivity and “good” manners, you need tactics and strategies to show up powerfully and make the best requests at work and in life. You can ask with confidence and integrity. It’s possible to achieve breakthrough results just by asking! 


Communicate Like a Leader: Connecting Strategically to Coach, Inspire, and Get Things Done by Dianna Booher

Strategic communication forms the core of leadership:  messages, meetings, conversations, presentations, and press conferences that have pivotal, long-term consequences. Every time leaders speak, meet, negotiate, write, or network, they have the opportunity to clarify or confuse, motivate or demoralize, engage or enrage.  Strategic thinkers stand out from the crowd. Big-picture thinking uniquely positions you as the resource for problem analysis and innovation.
