With his breakout book, Conversational Capacity
, Craig Weber revolutionized the concept of business communications by teaching readers a veritable conversational martial art that allows teams to perform well and remain open, balanced, and nondefensive as they tackle their most troublesome issues. His proven methods have been used to bolster the performance of executive groups and flight crews, as well as surgical units and CDC emergency response teams. Even more impressive, in over a dozen U.S. states it is even helping Democratic and Republican legislators work together more effectively as they craft public policy. In this new book, Weber goes deeper, showing individuals how to put these principles into practice—using a step-by-step program that includes case studies, sample dialogues, skill-building exercises, and powerful conversation techniques.
This book will help you balance candor and curiosity under pressure by honing your awareness, shifting your mindset, and sharpening your skills. Better still, it will help you do this as you inspire constructive change all around you. Research shows that people yearn for more meaningful work. They want to feel like active participants in the workplace. They’re eager to be more engaged. They’re raring to make a difference. And what is leadership if not Influence in Action
