""Summer Reading!
Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When the Stakes Are High, by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler.

The updated second edition contains new research, case studies and resources. This book gives you the tools to make it safe to talk about almost anything; to be persuasive, not abrasive; and to transform anger and hurt feelings into powerful dialogue. Leadership guru Stephen Covey says, “[Crucial Conversations] draws our attention to those defining moments that literally shape our lives, our relationships and our worlds. . . . This book deserves to take its place as one of the key thought leadership contributions of our time.
