San Diego, CA, October 28, 2014 -- Maureen Orey, President of Workplace Learning and Performance Group, has announced a revised version of “Communication Skills Training” book. The book is published by the Association of Talent Development (ATD), which will be officially released on November 21, 2014. 

“Communication Skills Training” is part of a business workshop series offered by the Association of Talent Development. The 200-page paperback book offers tools and methods to people who are interested in training others in the art of communication.

"Communication skills is an important part of any business relationship. We spend the majority of our waking life communicating with others - whether it’s through email, text message, social media, and more. Miscommunication amongst co-workers or between employees and customers happen more often than we realize," says Orey. "Knowing how to interact with people and delivering messages in an effective manner can have a major impact on the success of any business."
