Nannette Rundle Carroll, Author, The Communication Problem Solver: Simple Tools and Techniques for Busy Managers

I have attended many management seminars, and although they all had a general focus on how to be more effective at work, none of them actually defined the subject of “effectiveness” the way Howard Miller did. It delivers a direct, human, makes sense approach, and most importantly, it works! This book reflects what he teaches in his workshops. I recommend it to any manager who wants to have less hassle, a better understanding on how to be productive, and more fun on the job!

Ismael Barba, Director of Sales, airline industry
