This book offers a wealth of principles and skills that will dramatically improve your career, your organization, and your relationships." Stephen R. Covey A powerful, seven-step approach to handling difficult conversations with confidence and skill. "Crucial" conversations are interpersonal exchanges at work or at home that we dread having but know we cannot avoid. How do you say what needs to be said while avoiding an argument with a boss, child, or relationship partner? Crucial Conversations offers readers a proven seven-point strategy for achieving their goals in all those emotionally, psychologically, or legally charged situations that can arise in their professional and personal lives. Based on the authors' highly popular DialogueSmart training seminars, the techniques are geared toward getting people to lower their defenses, creating mutual respect and understanding, increasing emotional safety, and encouraging freedom of expression. Among other things, readers also learn about the four main factors that characterize crucial conversations, and they get a powerful six-minute mastery technique that prepares them to work through any high impact situation with confidence. The authors, Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler are top international corporate consultants and cofounders of Vitality Alliance, Inc., and VitalSmarts. Together they have developed dozens of corporate training programs for dozens of Fortune 500 companies. Learn how to keep your cool and get the results you want when emotions flare. When stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong, you have three choices: avoid a crucial conversation and suffer the consequences, handle the conversation badly and suffer the consequences, or read the NYT Bestseller Crucial Conversations and discover how to communicate best when it matters most.

  • Lacks Overall Quality

    By Sharp arrow
    Robert R. I expected more from my iTunes purchase. Narration is not smooth, almost mechanical, making this audio version a bit difficult to listen to. Often, I found reading to be easier than listening (defeats the purpose of an audio book).The end of some chapters were "clipped" short in the narration. The book is filled with typographical errors. Overall I would not recommend this purchase.
  • Audio does not play

    Bought book to listen to audio. It does not work. Bad purchase.
  • Love the book, like the app....

    By BryanPDavis
    Just love this book so far, but it is unfortunate that the app doesn't support Bluetooth so I can listen in my car. And if I do want to listen in my car, it costs another $15 for the audiobook.
