At a time when we are overwhelmed with digital distractions, the new book from Julienne Ryan, outlines eight (8) winning plays to promote calm communication and reduce conflict with quirky humor that will keep you smiling.


"Ryan’s quirky, insightful, humorous approach to work and life doesn’t disappoint. A fun bonus is the many photos and images she has added to illustrate her points" —Julie Jansen, author

With common sense and humor, Ryan calls on us to find our virtual “Front Stoop” (a Queens, New York word for steps) and seek places and moments for an “in your space conversation” versus an “in your face “discourse. “The Learned-It-In Queens Communications Playbook – Winning Against Digital Distraction” is a well needed visual antidote to our communication challenges. The book is designed to be a communications bridge builder by showing the challenges we share no matter what our background, education, or role. Any person who ever blurted out “What did he just say to me?” and promptly fired off an angry e-mail or text will benefit from the calm, practical advice.

What Others Are Saying

“This small, highly entertaining book is packed with great advice…I think Jules’ most important achievement, however, is managing to codify and explain something that she does naturally. In many cases, when you try to learn something from a ‘natural,’ they both underestimate how hard it is to pick up their skills and also have trouble being specific about how those skills can be developed. She does both extremely well, and in a way that makes her communications advice practical and memorable” Kelly Barner, Owner & Managing Director Buyer’s Meeting Point.
