350. How to Have Fierce Conversations That Get Extraordinary Results

May 9, 2022 | 0 comments

If we want to look at the quality of our relationships, we have to look no further than the quality of the conversations that we have.

The everyday conversations with the people we care about are either strengthening our relationships or undermining them – and we’re not always aware of which is taking place because we’re failing so slowly we think we’re succeeding. When it comes to marriages, it can be catastrophic. With children, it can lead to relationships full of regret. With business, it can lead to millions of dollars lost that could have been realized. 

So how do we fix it? How do we get clear on how we communicate with the people who matter most so that we build amazing relationships and build extraordinary lives? Susan Scott of “Fierce Conversations” has been on the show before, and she’s going to help us answer those questions.
