Marit's Leadership Book Club: Fierce Conversations

Fierce Conversations
by Susan Scott

Susan Scott is an internationally recognized leader in executive education. Fierce Conversations – Achieving Success at Work & in Life, One Conversation at a Time provides a simple, but specific, outline, along with detailed examples of her endeavors, to enable anyone to take part in meaningful conversation.

Susan emphasized two things throughout the entire book in order to ensure that the message was clear. The first of which was the word “fierce,” which is defined as: robust, intense, strong, powerful, passionate, eager, unbridled. The second thing Susan most emphasized was, “coming out from behind yourself and make the conversation real.” Her constant emphasis on this phrase developed throughout the book, which eventually highlighted its true importance as it progressed.

This book will help you gain the insight and skills to make every conversation count. The author has a clear desire is to change the world -- one conversation at a time.

I highlighted this book in an episode of Mornings with Marit. Watch below.
