Communicating with IMPACT
Book Description
Patrick Donadio’s book, “Communicating with IMPACT” shows you how to take control of your actions and words so that you can be a more effective and efficient communicator. Patrick has created a powerful process, including six outstanding principles (IMPACT), to help you effectively communicate ideas and achieve greater results – faster!:

I – Intention
M – Message
P – Person
A – Activate
C – Clarify
T – Transform

These principles will provide you with the tools you need to lead more effectively, communicate clearly, listen actively, present more powerfully, deepen relationships, enhance your credibility, increase sales, achieve greater results and positively impact the lives of others. In an age with so much technology, communication has expanded to several platforms, but even with so many paths to communicate, how do you ensure your message is received properly?
