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.
