Describe your desk
My desk is always messy. As a result, I have purchased a screen to cover the mess when I meet with clients.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Change begins one conversation at a time.
Having benefitted tremendously from coaching, I wanted to share a simple process that anyone can use to engage in challenging conversations. This process can be used by parents, teachers, managers and therapists--basically anyone who interacts with other humans.
The coach approach is rapidly gaining in popularity because it allows leaders to connect more deeply with people of all ages and backgrounds. This book will help you bring your leadership skills to the next level by offering tools to improve your ability to engage in challenging conversations in ways that build your team rather than shut down future communications.
