  • (3/5)
    Actual rating: 2.5. Some good ideas but I don't think I walked away from it with as many usable lessons on communication as I've had with other texts. Also, it lacks an understanding of nuance in relationships and intersectionality that I can't fully express right now.
  • (3/5)
    Some padding in the content, but most of it is actual, useful how-to with examples. It's not fluff, it's not hogwash, it just takes time to reshape or rewire how one defaults into old habits in conversations. With practise, this could be a game changer.
  • (2/5)
    Hated the first section about how this book will transform your life and made your a super human being. This book can be summed efficiently into a blog post without losing any core material.
  • (3/5)
    A key skill for any effective leader is the ability to navigate emotionally or politically risky issues.Some good insights. Implementing it's suggestions requires practice and reference to the book. Perhaps, not so good for an audio book.
  • (4/5)
    Shouldn't a book on how to have productive dialogue be unneeded? Don't we already know how to talk with each other?

    We may, but we often don't.

    This is a useful set of tools and strategies for having those conversations with loved ones at home and with colleagues at work.
  • (4/5)
    This book is very useful. It provides lots of help in learning to have difficult conversations. Following some of the suggestions has made me a better communicator already.
  • (4/5)
    A surprisingly good self-help type book about how to talk to people without getting emotional, have difficult conversations, how to get people to compromise with you, etc. Examples tend to be from the business world and include some jargon, but there are also examples from personal life. I got the book in conjunction with a training program.
  • (5/5)
    I have read Difficult Conversations - Douglas Stone, Bruce Patton, Sheila Heen and although both books talk about how to have these 'important' discussions, they are kinda different approach. I don't intend to say that they have any kind of a prequel/sequel relationship, but just that the ideas and techniques mentioned in this book are very interesting."Emotions don't exactly prepare us to converse effectively."Recommended to anyone.
  • (4/5)
    If you are concerned about how to tackle a sensitive conversation with anyone, this is a must read book.
  • (4/5)
    This is an exceptional guide to approaching life-changing conversations in a way that handles the baggage and emotions that so often derail them. It includes a general framework, plus some self-diagnostic tools and plenty of realistic examples.
  • (4/5)
    Good practical way of dealing with difficult conversations & situations. It helps you to get into the mind of others and recognize the same issues in your own mind as you address issues. Excellent material.
  • (5/5)
    Highly recommended. W- and I have both read this, and it makes those tough conversations go so smoothly! =D
  • (5/5)
    This is a seminal book with concepts that should be taught in schools, churches, and every workplace. Lives will be changed when these principles are consistently practiced.
  • (5/5)
    Every teacher, principal or other leader should read this book. It has powerful advice on how to handle conversations within board meetings, parents meetings, etc.
  • (5/5)
    Not a Christian book but helpful for people coming out of abusive churches or confronting someone in a cult.
