    "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.

    Overall

    This is one of the best books I've ever read on the topic of interacting with others. The book really causes me to stop and think about what I'm saying, but more importantly WHY I'm saying it - what story have I made up in my mind about the person I'm giving my message to? Is it an accurate story? Have I thought about our pending conversation and found the common ground on which to build that discussion? When I've practiced what I've learned in this book, my crucial conversations go well. As an example, I had been years in conflict with someone in my organization that I felt was only interested in showing he was "alpha male". I started applying what I learned in this book. Over time (and not that much time, actually), the relationship I had with this individual changed dramatically. We now interact with each other based on mutual respect, common goals, and true collaboration. This should be on every leader's "must read" list.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    Overall

    If you're looking for a "magic bullet" - something that will prescriptively give you the steps to follow to make change happen - don't read this book.

    However, if you'd like a very clear understanding of they key pieces needed to effect change - in yourself, your loved ones, your co-workers, organization - even a culture - this is your book. The visual I now have of the elephant, the rider, and the path is so clear, so easy to understand, I can use these three priciples as guidelines in any situation.

    I've shared this book with many people since reading it.
