    A Guide for English communication amongst international professionals

    Leading in English provides a valuable resource for more effective international business communication. Whether you're a non-native English speaker working in English every day, or a native speaker working with non-native speakers, this book levels the playing field with a host of  insights and tips using real-time examples. Through shared experiences and an engaging narrative, you'll gain confidence as you build the skills you need to communicate more effectively in the workplace. Impart information, relate to coworkers, or just have a friendly chat—this book helps remove uncertainty and streamline interactions. Whether language is a small stumbling block or a large hurdle in your workplace, this book can help you overcome the issues and be happier, more confident, and more effective at your job.  

    Communication is tremendously important in the workplace.  When English presents a barrier, removing that obstacle must be priority number one. This book helps you do that, with expert insight, practical tips, and a bit of humor to help shift your perspective.

    • Boost your confidence as a non-native English speaker
    • Work more effectively with coworkers and clients
    • Speak more confidently to an international audience
    • Strengthen your communication skills in all areas

    In the course of a single work day, you have many one-to-one conversations, several group conversations, and maybe even a presentation or two–wouldn't it be nice to know that you've been heard, understood, and correctly interpreted? English is a tricky language, but there are ways around the issues that tend to trip up non-native speakers. Leading in English shows you how to clear the air and communicate more effectively at any level of English proficiency.
