Publisher's Summary

The key to success in life and business is to become a master at Conversational Intelligence. It's not about how smart you are, but how open you are to learn new and effective powerful conversational rituals that prime the brain for trust, partnership, and mutual success. Conversational Intelligence translates the wealth of new insights coming out of neuroscience from across the globe, and brings the science down to earth so people can understand and apply it in their everyday lives. Author Judith Glaser presents a framework for knowing what kind of conversations trigger the lower, more primitive brain; and what activates higher-level intelligences such as trust, integrity, empathy, and good judgment. Conversational Intelligence makes complex scientific material simple to understand and apply through a wealth of easy to use tools, examples, conversational rituals, and practices for all levels of an organization.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"Glaser's idea of C-IQ provides an excellent guide to improving effectiveness both on the job and outside the office and should stimulate "thinking different" among practitioners, faculty, and students of business. High recommended." (Library Journal)

    "Great insights"
    What did you love best about Conversational Intelligence?

    This book was a really nice look at how conversations can spark great things, but more importantly, giving some insight into what stops us have great conversations.

    "Medocre book"
    Would you try another book from Judith E. Glaser and/or Karen Saltus?

    Maybe, the book started good with some interesting insights about the conversations and our influence on people but later on, the interesting part disolved leaving us with no real concrete advise or teaching rather than the old "be nice" or "be yourself". Also tryed to sumarize poorly NLP concepts.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Judith E. Glaser again?

    Maybe, depends on theb book and the ratings.


    What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

    It was afair performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Conversational Intelligence?

    I would make the author to present the ideas in a more clear way.

    "Some good points behind the words"
    Would you try another book from Judith E. Glaser and/or Karen Saltus?

    No


    Would you recommend Conversational Intelligence to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe a summary of the book


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, the narrator's tonal quality was difficult to listen to while driving, the words did not come across clearly.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This book had some critical skills and points for humanity but it was couched within so much psycho-babble and pseudo-science that it made if difficult to listen to. The author uses the term Conversational Intelligence almost every 2nd or 3rd sentence as well as "pre-frontal cortex," "amygdala," and "functional magnetic resonance imaging (F-MRI)." I'm sure her findings have some basis within science, but it feels as if the reader/listener is beaten over the head with these words to show you she is not making it up. I think all of her findings are valid and have some very useful take-aways, but it is very difficult to sort through all the extra words and find those nuggets, especially in the listening format.

    "important content but a bit redundant"

    This is important content for people in both business and personal situations. The redundancy can make it a little difficult to get through, but I think it is worth it

    "interesting info, boring as hell narration"

    I liked the message that this book delivers, but listening to this book made me want to pull my hair out! The narrator does reads this like a legal text book, a very VERY DRY legal textbook. This unfortunately means that you don't get dragged in the story and your mind starts drifting onto other things. Before you know it, you've turned out her monotone voice and missed the whole story! I would recommend reading the book instead of listening to it!

    "Interesting links to science and conversation skills"

    Interesting connections between conversations and science. Some of the concepts presented are repackaged skills that have been around quite a while. I do want to dig deeper into understanding the science the author cited.

    I did not care for the author's overuse of "I", as in I did this, I named this tool, etc. As I mentioned, the conversational tools Ms. Glaser references have been around a long time, and little credit is given to those whose shoulders she stands on.

    If you are new to studying conversational skills, then this book will be helpful.

    "Great content...but it's read by a computer."
    What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

    I'm sorry Karen, but this recording sounds like it was produced by a computer. I couldn't last even 5 minutes before I had to shut it off. I decided to read the book instead. Just a dreadful experience listening to this recording of otherwise great content.
