New York, NY (Dec. 6, 2012) – Late last month, The Power of Communication: Skills to Build Trust, Inspire Loyalty, and Lead Effectively by Helio Fred Garcia was named to the US Marine Corps Commandant’s Professional Reading List.
The Power of Communication is about how leaders can inspire, persuade, earn the confidence of stakeholders through verbal engagement, and how they can build trust, inspire loyalty, and lead effectively.
“I have had the honor of teaching Marines and of getting to know them for more than 20 years. In that time, I’ve been impressed with their commitment to training, teaching, and learning.” Garcia said, “It’s an added honor, privilege, and delight for me to know that I can continue to influence Marines and their way of thinking at a distance.”
The Commandant’s Professional Reading List was launched in 1989 by then-Commandant Gen. Alfred Gray. The current list is organized by rank and level (recruit through general officer), and also by category (Strategic Thinking, Leadership, Regional and Cultural Studies).
The Commandant’s Professional Reading List consists of more than 150 books divided into 19 groups; ten of the groups are rank-specific, nine are in categories such as Leadership, Strategic Thinking, Counterinsurgency, and Aviation. The Power of Communication is one of eight books in the Leadership category.
