What People Say About Fierce Conversations

“When the authentic conversations so clearly described in this book catch on everywhere, it will be the end of gossip, corporate politics, bad marriages and 360° feedback. Fierce Conversations is today’s primer for success as well as for survival in our ever-changing world.”

— Stephen C. Lundin, Ph.D., Harry Paul and John Christensen, Co-Authors of Fish! And Fish! Tales

“While success is often measured by an accumulation of titles, acquisitions, and the financial bottom line, little or no attention is paid to the power of each conversation to move us towards or away from our stated business and life goals. No longer. Susan Scott set out to help us change our lives–one conversation at a time.”

— Ken Blanchard, Co-Author of The One-Minute Manager

“Susan Scott has delivered a wealth of uncommon common sense in Fierce Conversations. Her warmth and skill as coach and counselor provide the healthy nudges we all need from time to time to jump in, get engaged, and manage ourselves and the world around us more directly positively and productively. It’s a reminder that ‘the way out is through,’ and she provides great techniques for navigating the passage.”

— David Allen | Author of Getting Things Done

“I was captivated by this magnificent book right from the start. Fierce Conversations insightfully captures and clearly interrogates the heart of ‘real’ conversation. Spending time with Susan Scott’s principles has the potential to make a significant difference in our work, our relationships, and in our understanding of ourselves.”

— Richard Carr, President & CEO, Vistage International, Inc.
