A strategic communications specialist, Scott Tavis has spent over fifteen years working with influential business leaders in North America and Europe, across a wide variety of industries. Scott has a passion for supporting senior executives uncover transformational strategies for themselves and their organizations and then translating that strategy into a clear, concise message to employees. Holding a BA in English from California Berkeley, he understands that without accurate communication, great ideas often risk being overshadowed by misinterpretation and poor word choice. Every chapter of this book represents Scott's personal and professional philosophy around effective communication.

Liz and Scott would like to think they are perfect communicators, and they are not. They do, however, strive to become better communicators every day, in every interaction. They do 'walk the talk' by applying the contents of this book on a daily basis between themselves and their three beautiful children, Maddie, Parker, and Ava.
