Publisher's Summary

Does your mind go blank when you try to make conversation with certain people? Are you not as social as you could be because you're afraid of running out of things to say? Have you ever secretly wished that you had the confidence and charisma to be able to connect instantly with pretty much anyone? Then, you need to keep reading...

"No matter what job you have in life, your success will be determined 5% by your academic credentials, 15% by your professional experiences, and 80% by your communication skills." (Stephen Wang)

Talking with strangers can be quite challenging for a lot of people. The fear of running out of things to say or making a fool out of yourself can be nerve-wracking. Because of this, most prefer to never take action and simply watch in frustration how those that are better at socializing and conversation take all the accolades, make great connections, and succeed in life with greater ease.

Some people believe that you are either born charismatic, or you aren't. You either have great social skills and are a great conversationalist, or you're not.

But how true is this? Are we really doomed to failure in social settings if we are not naturally extroverted or are currently anti-social?

Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do to completely turn your life around, even if you currently consider yourself to be one of the least sociable persons you know of.

In this audiobook, you'll discover:

  • A painless way to eliminate social anxiety for the rest of your lifetime
  • A proven road map that anyone can use to boost their conversation skills, even if they are extremely anti-social
  • Safe strategies to help break the ice with pretty much anyone
  • Secret hacks that will help save you a lot of time and become a better conversationalist and reach your goals quicker than you imagine
  • Effective strategies that actors and celebrities use that will help dramatically improve your body language and how others perceive you
  • Astounding ways to build your charisma so that you become the most likable and charming person in the room
  • Steps to deal with even the toughest conversations like a total pro
  • And much more...

Scientific research has shown that developing social and conversational skills can lead to decreased levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Having a solid set of social skills inevitably leads to better academic and life outcomes. 

Years of studying how our behavior patterns work in society have now made this type of training so easy to follow that even the shyest person you can think of can turn their life around with the correct road map.

So, if you'd like to become an amazing conversationalist, make connections quicker, or increase your charisma, then click the "buy now" button and start to improve your life today!

Full of great advice

This book contained so many great principles and ideas! The authors expressed their views in a way that encourages you to follow them for the sake of character and people not control. As of this review, I have not implemented everything, but one that really stuck out to me was mutual purpose. If we can all agree on a goal, then we can start heading in the right direction. Excellent listen that was well worth my time!

When I had issues with my leadership and I didn’t know how to communicate effectively, i went to our Ombuds office and they referred me to this book. Best purchase I’ve ever made and it’s helped both my professional and personal life.

Useful guidance

This book has a lot of useful tools for making headway with all sorts of problems--work or personal. When you find yourself in a situation where these techniques are necessary, I think it might be hard to quickly think of all the steps and procedures that are given. A lot of these techniques are really common sense, but, sadly, common sense isn't really very common.

Helpful guidance

It has some great guidance when you lead a large group of 80 as I do in my profession and giving feedback is always crucial conversations to the individual and the organization. It works for personal life in the family as well. So far, I love this book! Will probably buy copies for my subordinate supervisors under me.

Well researched!

Crucial Conversations will never let you think about tough communication in the same way again. The authors clearly explain how "when it matters most, we're at our worst" - meaning that when we really need to communicate well, we often just habitually go into a state of "silence" or "violence". From these states, we usually mess up those important conversations.

Awesome!

This book showed up at the right time for me. I had been struggling for awhile with some coworkers and had taken the victim role. However, after using some of the tips and recommendations I have successfully changed my relationships at work. I'm not afraid to have conversations anymore. I'm happier and am now way more productive and positive.

Fantastic!

This is a great book and I highly recommend it. I'm a pretty non-confrontational person but this gave defined tools and guidance on how to have productive, difficult conversations.
