Talk is (Not!) Cheap

In Talk Is (Not!) Cheap, McCann illustrates how the art of conversation leadership — the process he developed to engage others and create forward momentum in the workplace — can be used to inspire, innovate, and win. Using a blend of how-to and insightful personal stories, this book argues that the gift of gab may just be the most critical (and undervalued) skill set in today’s workplace. Lessons include how to overcome hesitation when diving into conversation with strangers and knowing when to just “shut up and listen!” McCann’s practical advice comes from twenty years of experience as the voice of small business, and from meeting and exchanging ideas with other influential business leaders around the world.
