“Authentic Conversations”: Moving from Manipulation to Truth and Commitment is an exciting new book by Jamie and Maren Showkeir, organizational consultants with a sound and accessible strategy for improving any organization’s bottom line through paying attention to its most valuable, and available, resources: its employees and the workplace culture in which they perform. Using everyday language Jamie and Maren offer clear examples of typical organizational communication styles, and alternative styles that will enhance engagement and commitment. The result they point us to is increased personal contentment, full participation though sharing both the burden of problems and the joy of innovative ideas, and success by adopting a thoughtful fidelity to organizational values and goals.
“Authentic Conversations” is important reading for anyone working in an organization and feeling that things need to improve! Published by BK Business books, San Francisco.
