Crucial Conversations - A Comprehensive Summary Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High is the best-selling, self-help book by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzer. In it, the authors use behavioral principles to help explain why people tend to avoid crucial conversations in all aspects of their lives, personal and professional. They explain the benefit of dialogue, comparing it to a pool that needs to be as deep as possible, with everyone pouring their “water” into it. Then, they help provide a road map to get the conversation off on the right foot, starting from the imperative that self-awareness is required to even be aware that one is taking place. With simple, easy-to-remember steps, the authors explain how to establish mutual purpose and respect, and what to do if things get off track. Finally, they suggest how to move from discussion to action. Here is a Preview of What You Will Get: ⁃ A Full Book Summary ⁃ An Analysis ⁃ Fun quizzes ⁃ Quiz Answers ⁃ Etc.

  • Best classes

    By Marlyn0M
    I took a class in college based on this book. It was one of the best classes I've ever taken. Before this book I used to shut down when I would get angry. I've learned through this book that the method of shutting down and refusing to talk can be as bad as yelling. Sometimes I still need time to calm down and not shut down, but I'm able to come back to the conversation and work with people, namely my husband. I highly recommend reading this book.
