FaithWords releases new book by Bishop T.D. Jakes on communicating effectively


NASHVILLE, TN –Communication matters more now than ever before.  We use so many different platforms to reach our target audiences that even one misconstrued word or phrase can completely change the tone and meaning.

In DON’T DROP THE MIC (FaithWords, April 20, 2021, ISBN:9781455595358), Jakes, one of the world’s most widely respected orators, wants to empower everyone to communicate effectively.

“Communication, no matter how eloquent or effusive it may be, is incomplete if understanding isn’t achieved. Connecting with the recipient of your message is an essential element of successful communication because being understood is the ultimate objective. Words may be exchanged in a common language, but without understanding both the methods and manners, the message is usually incomplete.” – T.D. Jakes, DON’T DROP THE MIC

Drawing lessons from his own life, Jakes gives career advice for those who have or want to grow into a speaking career, but he also provides clear direction and insight for everyone who gives presentations, writes emails, or talks to other people in their job or home life.

Jakes helps readers understand:

  • Why the way we speak and the words we use matter
  • How speaking well, no matter your topic or audience, improves your chances of getting the result you want
  • How to craft your message, whether it’s a simple email or a speech under the spotlights, to connect with listeners
  • Why good communication is important for building connection and community
  • How sharing God’s Word produces abundant fruit

DON’T DROP THE MIC is the guide we all need on how we can communicate more clearly, build community and share hope in our everyday lives. Whether you’re interviewing for a new position, proposing a new business plan, auditioning for a performance, delivering a report for your committee, teaching Sunday school, or sharing your heart with a loved one, this book will help.
