About The Book

Discover your communication style and elevate consciousness at work to build trust, strengthen collaboration, relieve stress, and improve well-being.

Our work lives revolve around effective communication. It is essential for cultivating trust and team collaboration, as well as strengthening our motivation and well-being at work. And with teams experiencing more anxiety, stress, and burnout than ever before, strong communication skills have never been more essential.

The key to this clear and effective communication begins with understanding our own personal communication styles. Bringing our whole and authentic selves to work improves relationships and teamwork. The better we know what drives us, how we impact others, and how our wellbeing impacts our communication, the faster we can close communication gaps to build healthy, successful, and satisfying work lives and more intentional careers.

Drawing on more than a decade of original research on communication tendencies and proven mindfulness and habit-formation techniques, Maryanne O’Brien has developed a proprietary model of communication styles: Expressive, Reserved, Direct, or Harmonious.

In The Elevated Communicator, you will find:
-A self-assessment to discover your style
-An in-depth style profile to strengthen self-awareness and help you play to your strengths
-Strategies to manage your communication style under stress
-Practices to improve your wellbeing and reduce conflict
-Ways to care for your communication style and improve your wellbeing
-Methods to flex toward other styles to communicate more effectively with people
-Advice on building healthy, trusted, and productive working relationships

Perfect for fans of StrengthsFinders 2.0 and Gretchen Rubin’s The Four Tendencies, The Elevated Communicator is a “refreshing, insightful, and user-friendly” (Tara Peyerl, executive coach and success director, Salesforce) approach to develop daily practices to spiral up, raise consciousness, inspire accountability, and discover your full potential at work.
