Publisher's Summary

Authentic Conversations explores everyday workplace conversations and shows their power in transforming organizations and driving organizational performance.

Traditional workplace conversations - which are based on a parent-child model - stymie growth and erode commitment. The Showkeirs advocate instead authentic conversations that are based on an adult-adult model. These conversations tell the truth, let go of the illusion of control, and view people as in charge of their own motivation. The result is a conversation revolution that creates greater commitment, real accountability for results, and improved organizational performance.

Great book for learning mindful communication

this book is really great for learning mindful communication at work and for every day. I like that it also gave examples of how to change your words to make a better conversation. I think everyone should read/listen to this book. I will highly recommend this book to all my friends, family and co-workers.
