Praise for Raise Your Game, Not Your Voice:

Advance Praise for Raise Your Game, Not Your Voice:

“Wow. Reading “Raise Your Game, Not Your Voice” by Lisa Beth Lentini Walker and Stef Tschida is a breath of fresh air. I’m a big believer in storytelling as a vehicle to educate – and communicate – and the authors bring that concept to life in an area that sorely needs it: compliance.

Written in an engaging style, it imparts knowledge in a subtle manner – so that you don’t even realize that you’re learning. Who can deny they don’t love a chapter entitled, “Intentional Relationship Management: Manage Your Relationships Like a BOSS!”

The chapter on listening really drove home the importance of this book for me. It’s the secret to truly winning over colleagues, over peers and those above and below you. It’s a lesson we don’t get taught enough. Bravo! And well worth your time!”
