Listen: How to Embrace the Difficult Conversations Life Throws at You
After a discussion with her husband over politics turned intense, coupled with the unexpected passing of her mother, Jen found herself trying to navigate some of life’s most difficult conversations.
She isn’t alone. In fact, recent research shows one in four people have been putting off an uncomfortable conversation for at least six months, and one in 10 people have been staying silent on an awkward issue for more than two years.
In Listen: How to Embrace the Difficult Conversations Life Throws at You, Jen Dalton shares intimate interviews and opens a window into different difficult conversations. She shows how the more people practice, the easier conversations can become, or at least the better people will be at controlling their own reactions in them.
“Jen Dalton uses a uniquely case-based approach to give the reader critical insights into the complexity of challenging conversations.”
– Professor Jeanine Turner, Communication, Culture and Technology Program at Georgetown University
“What a timely and insightful book. When raised voices seem to be the norm in our increasingly polarized society, her examples are insightful, but more than that, they are helpful. Listen reads like a conversation with a friend who puts her arm around your shoulder and gives you good advice.”
– Jan Molino, President & CEO, Aspire-Ascend
