In just three months since publishing her second book, communications expert and human rights leader, Blaise Hunter’s passion project has become a #1 Amazon bestseller and won a prestigious award. Hunter breaks barriers in Captain Communicator: How To Turn Signals Into Superpowers by addressing how to tackle The Great Resignation, reproductive health rights, and improve interpersonal relations through empowered communication.
Humans solely rely on communication to survive yet we are notorious for being horrible communicators. With the pandemic, an escalating global crisis, and rising social issues relationships are strained. It’s not surprising that a fresh communication guide helping to boost self-reflection, trauma healing, diplomacy, and acceptance is gaining popularity. According to Expert Market’s recent study, “The Importance of Effective Workplace Communication”, learning how to communicate with various personality types and how to manage conflict resolution are must-have skills. Diplomacy is a superpower and will contribute to a more empathetic approach to communication in the workplace. Hunter’s Captain Communicator is a model of effective and considerate communication. In this unique and timely book, she shares how to quickly identify what our triggers are and how to consciously respond instead of reacting. To master the art of communication, one must become a master of self-awareness. This book is a hybrid mix of a memoir and a self-help guide to help connect humanity. Each chapter concentrates on a different topic and provides practical tools on how to address trauma, triggers, and bridge the gaps in how we communicate with ourselves and others.
