Hat I want What s going on However on much thinking "he realises The conversation is the relationship The moment you stop "realises The conversation is the relationship The moment you stop the conversation the relationship comes to an he realises The conversation is the relationship The moment you stop have the conversation the relationship comes to an I am paraphrasing but when I read this I went and bought the book I have read it many times and find it an xtremely useful resource as I have dealt with many difficult conversations I don t usually like to leave negative reviews but this book compelled me to In short it is a terrible read because it teaches very little and the little it teaches is taught in an awful way Here s the crux of the problem Susan Scott doesn t appear capable of saying anything without using an anecdote or drawing reference from things that should have no bearing on the topic g in this book she tries to get her points across via Winnie the Pooh what Scott s high school classmates wrote about her in the yearbook and reams and reams of movie scenes Even the simplest messages are wrapped around lengthy stories that run for pages The problem with this heavy reliance on anecdotes is that it s dangerous to derive principles from them and I would most certainly not live my life a certain way just because Hey This movie character said this did that Statistics would have helped in this book but on the odd occasion she does mploy data to back up her points it comes from random sources like automobilecomYou can also tell from her heavy reliance on movies and the way she writes that Scott is Damian essentially a failed novelist masuerading as a businessperson Here s a sentence selected from the book at random From the plane I glimpsed pods of orca whales Striking swathes of ultramarine andmerald green currents stippled the water Not to be harsh but this really isn t what most people signed up for when they picked up the book The above Consequences extract added no value to what she had to say about the central matter and no one is interested in hearing her wax lyrical and badly at that about orcas and how the sea looked like Get to the point Unfortunately Susan Scott fails miserably at this Of the 20 books I ve read this year so far this is the one I regret starting the most One star no doubt This book is probably better than I think it is To me there is no great revelation in the importance of having fiercely authentic conversations Moreover I feel that the language was targeted.

Fierce Conversations has made its way into the conversation of Steven Covey John C Maxwell and Ken Blanchard style self improvement and business booksIt s a good premise in that all relationships are series of conversations Thus we should have those fierce conversations We should always be our genuine self and we should never take a conversation for grantedAll noble ideas that you may not need a book for but Scott outlines ideas she says will workIt is a popular that is still hopping and in A 3rd Edition The 3rd Tom S Redemption edition Thedition is The Dungeon Master The Disappearance Of James Dallas Egbert Iii essentially the same if that Some content got moved to different chapters and there s a few cyberra paragraphs but it s largely the same bookIt is important stuff of course and though the subject is Custom Toys Made To Order eternal Scott is deserving of her fame We should pursue Fierce think Fierce Conversation as in Sasha Fierce not as in Crossfire Conversations and if you need help Scott gives you the tools you needTendencies to tiptoe around some subjects for a variety of reasons This book will help you approach those topics Our message can t be lost nor can we speak without acknowledging ourmotional wake There are the usual things you get in books like these Scott spends a uite a bit of time telling you how great she is something all self helpers tend to do her stories show a lap of luxury most would not relate to and she probably gets people to draw out their stories to her because she s not attached to the situation a skill you would see from any bartenderStill it does a pretty good job in doing what it purports to do Basic sense good to give to people who have none The type of professional self help book that has good advice but treats its readers like buffoons forcing us to trudge through many many unnecessary Solitude Arme examples and repetitions as we arrive at a few very simple points which could have been made in 10 or 15 pages I discovered this book while browsing through the shelves at the Chapters bookstore at 401 and Kennedy in Toronto As I flipped through the book I came across this snippet that mentioned a newly married couple The first weekend the wife wanted to talk about their relationship the husband relented The next weekend once again the wife wanted to sit and talk about their relationship the following weekend it was the same thing Now the man began to wonder Hey this is not The Wall Street Journal bestseller now with new material The master teacher of positive change through powerful communication Susan Scott wants her readers to succeed To do that shexplains one must transform very. ,

review Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life One Conversation at a Time

At a different audience As a result while all of the ideas were generally agreeable there was very little that really resonated with me personallyMy opinion may have also been h Ugh this was a hard book to get through There are too many ideas it s hard to pick out one that will work Also this lady thinks she s awesome and wants to tell you all about how awesome she is She isn t awesome The ideas and action items provided in this book were thought provoking and helpful however I felt most of the xamples were tailored to readers in management roles at companies I just couldn t relate to those ideas hence the 4 instead of 5 star ratingThe stories and information I could relate to were fantastic if shocking It was hard to sit and honestly think about how I have conversations with people i realized a lot of the time I realized a lot of the time am practicing bad conversation tactics and nter with my own agenda which overpowers the actual conversation While I probably won t see an instant improvement I am definitely going to work on being present less judgemental and involved in my conversations Hopefully I will see a difference in my communication style The president of my company recently ncouraged all members of the leadership "team to read this book I do not feel that I am being harsh in any way by giving this 1 "to read this book I do not feel that I am being harsh in any way by giving this 1 guess it might contain okay ish information for people new to management or leadership but it is fairly basic info Have honest conversations with people at work be authentic ask probing uestions to get to the root cause of problems tc and blah blah That isn t fierce That s common sense I could have summed this up in a few sentences Be the kind of leader you would like to have and Try to be assertive without being a dick Of all the professional books I ve read in my life this is the one I would list at The Very Top As The One I Should Have Read very top as the one I should have read years ago as I was just launching a career in ducational leadership No let me take that back This is the book I should have read 33 years ago when I became a mother Hmmmmm In fact this is the book I should have read 40 years ago as I was launching my first marriage Wait let me try one time This is the book I should have read 50 years ago as I began to take responsibilities for relationships I would have been ight years old Does that serve as a sufficient recommendatio.
