Communication Skills/Selfish?

I have a very poor communication skills. And although I know I have lots of wonderful ideas to share, I cannot simply get my ideas across. Due to this, my people skills dropped. Many times it jeopardized my position at work and had several conflicts with my subordinates. This book "Communication Skills - How to Improve Your Communication Skills and Get Your Ideas Across" came to me at the most perfect time. Many thanks for saving my job (and relationships as well)! Now I find myself being an engaging conversationalist and an effective communicator! I sooo like it! After applying the techniques in this book, I somehow win the favors of my colleagues too.
