Featuring the Author George Walther
In Business, we spend twice as much time using the telephone as we do handling mail, writing reports -- even attending meeting. Still, the phone is currently our most underdeveloped tool, and we pay less attention to our telephone strategies than to any other business skill. The result? The average businessperson wastes approximately six hours each week playing telephone tag, fending off unscreened callers, or trapped into rambling -- or dead-end -- conversations.

Pick up Phone Power and learn to:

From the switchboard operator to the President -- and all the sales, customer service, secretarial and accounting personnel in between -- everyone can enhance their organization's effectiveness by following these straightforward principle -- and plugging into the profit potential of your telephone.
