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


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 Magazines for Business Communication'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.

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.)


Adopt the only modern "Essentials" text: Business Communications Essentials by Bovee and Thill.

How to Detect When People Are Lying

How to Detect When People Are Lying | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

Lying well is hard — but not in the way you might think.



We usually look for nervousness as one of the signs of lying. Like the person is worried about getting caught. But that’s actually a weak predictor. Some people are so confident they don’t fear getting caught. Others are great at hiding it.


Some get nervous when questioned so you get false positives. And others are lying to themselves — so they show no signs of deliberate deception. So lying isn’t necessarily hard in terms of stress. But it is hard in terms of “cognitive load.” What’s that mean? . . .
