Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook?

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook? | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it

Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:


Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.


In light of these facts, are your students being served well? There is one team that’s always on the cutting edge: Bovee and Thill. The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current. (Bovee and Thill were also the first authors to discuss social media and digital communication in their texts.)

How to Avoid Communication Pitfalls In the Workplace

How to Avoid Communication Pitfalls In the Workplace | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it

More men are thinkers rather than feelers, and more women are feelers rather than thinkers. Little wonder when it comes to communication in the workplace, men and women often have difficulty in effectively communicating, and those of the same sex with opposite preferences, also experience the same problem.

 

Until thinkers and feelers recognise their differences, and learn to effectively communicate with each other, communication in the workplace will always be full of pitfalls, for all involved.

 

This excellent article, offers three tips each for thinkers and feelers, to help each to improve the outcome of their communications with the other. . .

14 Logical Fallacies That Keep Showing up in Bad Arguments

14 Logical Fallacies That Keep Showing up in Bad Arguments | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it
If you hear these arguments, you're arguing with a fool.
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"There are a lot of ways that people make terrible and invalid arguments.


"Making a good argument is about using logic to prove a conclusion based on some given facts. In a valid argument, the conclusion actually does follow from the facts.


"Unfortunately, this can go wrong in many ways. Facts don't always support conclusions in the way an argument's author thinks they do." . . .

Six Dramatic Changes That Are Affecting Business Communication Instruction

The teaching of business communication is undergoing a transformation because of six dramatic changes that are explained in this video.


These factors shape a different workplace in the 21st century and require students to learn new and better ways to communicate.


For example, the trend away from the old communication model as a monologue, as in a typical sales letter, to the new communication model as a dialogue, such as on Facebook business page, is not a fad. It's a fundamental shift in the way we communicate. Companies are no longer in control of their messages and must adapt to a world in which customers and other stakeholders demand to participate in and influence the conversation.

8 Steps to Squashing a Customer's Complaint

8 Steps to Squashing a Customer's Complaint | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it

Customer complaints are inevitable. If you run a business that sells to the public no matter how great your goods or services are the old adage will eventually be proven true: You cannot please 100% of the people 100% of the time.


Most customer concerns can be dealt with simply by complying with the person’s reasonable requests. From time-to-time, however, you will come across those customers who will demand something that simply is unwarranted or impossible to deliver.


No matter the issue at the heart of the complaint it is important to remember these rules when resolving your customer service issues: . . .

Can Your Business Communication Textbook Pass This Google Test? (See test below.)

Can Your Business Communication Textbook Pass This Google Test? (See test below.) | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

Social media are revolutionizing business communication—even companies that don't use these tools yet are affected by new audience behaviors and expectations.

Is your business communication textbook informed by real-life, hands-on experience with social media? We invite you to try a simple experiment.

1. Google the following keywords: Bovee Thill social media


How many results do you see?

2. Now search for social media along with the names of the authors
    of your current text.


How do the results compare with the Bovee and Thill search?

Which authors names do you see associated with social media sites, such as Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Flickr, SlideShare, SlideBoom, Authorstream, My Docstoc, StumbleUpon, Scribd, Photobucket, SlickPic, Fotki, 23, Bag the Web, About.Me, Twylah,  Scoop.it, Skype, WhatsApp, Yahoo Messenger, My Zimbio, Clipular, Tumblr, PDFcast.org, AWeber, BombBomb, PRLog, Calameo, Gazhoo, Symbaloo, Kippt, Redux, Storify, Yahoo Pipes, Rockpack, Plaxo, Waywire, Bovee and Thill's Business Communication Blog, Business Communication Headline News, Instapaper, and YouTube?

The answer: You'll see Bovee and Thill associated with dozens of social media sites, including the 45 sites mentioned above. All other business communication authors: practically none.

The reason for this discrepancy is that Bovee and Thill use the social media tools they write about, and they've been active and innovative practitioners for years now. This deep experience is reflected in their textbooks, with thoroughly integrated coverage of social media practices and dozens of real-world social media cases and student exercises. For other authors, social media appear to be largely an abstract concept.

Which textbooks would you and your students benefit from the most?
