Publisher's Summary

A simple communication framework to begin practicing today. 

We all carry around the technology to stay connected 24/7, yet many of us are disengaged and challenged with our lack of communication skills. The Power of Connection provides you with practical, real-world solutions for improving your professional performance, your personal relationships, and your outlook - one conversation at a time.  

Becoming a confident and compelling communicator might be the most important skill for leaders in the modern business landscape, parents in the modern home, and individuals who use "self-talk" to help shape their world. By adopting the simple strategies revealed in every chapter, you can become an unshakable success at what you set out to do. 

This audiobook is designed to help you start communicating better today, so start listening and start practicing with your very next conversation!  

  • Understand your communication strengths and weaknesses
  • Become a better listener to build a deeper connection 
  • Learn how communication sits at the heart of all relationships 
  • Develop the skills to connect, inspire, engage, and empower 

We are surrounded by noise, yet no one is actually saying anything we can connect with - or are we just not listening? Communication is a two-way street and involves so much more than just speaking. 

The Power of Connection offers a quick and easy road map for your personal journey of growth and development that will make you a better parent, friend, spouse, and employee. It's the right message for this time considering there's never a wrong time to level up your skills and become more effective at work, at home, and in life.

I didn't get anything from this

I have to admit I'm only half way through... but I couldn't finish it. its just Rik talking about how good at communicating he is, and how everyone around him thought the same. maybe one day I'll give it another go , but this just isn't for me.

Communicate. understand and connect better today

This is a great book about the biggest underlying factor in all of our lives - how we communicate with everyone around us and based on that communication, the quality and depth of our relationships. None of us live in isolation. We are all part of a team, at work, at home, in our circles of friends. Rik's book is thought provoking, insightful and educational. Loved it and recommen it to everyone.

It’s ok for a basic intro. The sample is not like the book.

Whilst there are good points dispersed throughout and the aim is respectable it would have been far better with different narration. Some of the at length personal discussion could be reduced or edited. Many unnecessary references delivered tensely.

Pay attention, this will improve your life!

‘Tune in before you broadcast.’

This is a mantra that I now live my life by. You may be good at communicating, but it’s through connecting that you find true gold and Rik delivers some principles that provide you with the opportunities to connect at a much higher level.

Powerful & Practical Life Hacks!

I’ve been fortunate to see Rik present and he is a master communicator. Now having just finished listening to his book it’s also abundantly clear he’s also a master author. Great book packed with practical life lessons for home and work. Thank you Rik! 😉

awesome book

This is ground breaking stuff really. Some very simple stuff but presented with a mark of genius. I wouldn't credit very many books with 'changing ' my outlook but this is definitely one of them. Loved this book and would highly recommend it. feel like I've been cracked open and ready to build a new reality. Wow is all I can say - oh and of course thank you Mr. Rushton
