More about Listen: How to Embrace the Difficult Conversations Life Throws at You
One in four people have been putting off an uncomfortable conversation for at least six months, one in 10 have been doing so for a year and another one in 10 have been staying mum on an awkward issue for more than two years.
In Listen: How to Embrace the Difficult Conversations Life Throws at You, Jen Dalton provides intimate stories and gives a window into different difficult conversations. She shows how the more people practice, the easier conversations can become, or at least the better they will be at controlling their reactions in them.
This book will help answer these questions:
- What important actions can I take to stay focused in difficult conversations?
- Why do people get angry when I share facts to help them?
- What are the top reasons we avoid conversations?
- What can I do over family dinners when politics comes up?
- How can I stay calm?
Listen is a guidebook to embracing difficult conversations that can improve relationships and change lives for good. There is no time like the present to speak to your family, friends, and/or co-workers and advance your relationships and ideas to the next level.
