Think about the conversations you have had in your workplace over the past few months. Do you ever come out of meetings wishing you had said something differently, felt misunderstood or not been given credit for your ideas? Do you have difficulty talking to people more senior than you? How do you handle difficult conversations at work? ‘How to read your boss’ will provide you with practical tools by introducing you to the world of workplace communication through linguistics.

How to Read Your Boss will be useful for anyone working in businesses or organisations in public, private or third sectors, anywhere in the world, including managers and those with leadership responsibility. No previous experience of linguistics or previous courses is required. It is designed to assess the effectiveness of the communication styles in your workplace and identify the type of communications culture where you work. It will offer alternative strategies for future business talk.
