“This is a comprehensive text that addresses communication from a multidisciplinary approach and reflects contemporary management practice.”
“Phil Clampitt takes the mystery out of understanding managerial communications. His engaging style of presenting important communication concepts has my students reading beyond their assignments. Prompting students to discuss the text in class has never been easier.”
“I have been searching for a text I could use that presented clear, skill-based, practical suggestions my students could implement in the business world along with a theoretical background that would provide a depth of understanding as to why those skills are successful. This textbook does just that. It is a terrific blend of theory, skills and provides real business-based practicum and analysis assignments for the students to apply what they learned in each chapter.”
“This is an excellent text to use for students seeking a degree in Organizational Leadership because it addresses more of the communication challenges that leaders face (e.g. performance feedback discussions, communicating about organizational change).”
“This book is one of the few which is a 'must read' in the field of management communication. Phil Clampitt combines a deep understanding of the research with an unparalleled sensitivity to the needs of practitioners. He has produced a text which is stimulating, fun to read and which transforms the way in which we think about communication in organizations. Wise executives will study its pages in order to steal ideas about best practice from one of the best in the business. The winners will be the organizations they work for. The losers will be the competition.”
“This text is a treasure trove for us in and out of the classroom.”
