  1. Jan

    Of all the professional books I ve read in my life, this is the one I would list at the very top, as the one I should have read 27 years ago as I was just launching a career in educational leadership No, let me take that back This is the book I should have read 33 years ago when I became a mother Hmmmmm In fact, this is the book I should have read 40 years ago as I was launching my first marriage Wait let me try one time This is the book I should have read 50 years ago as I began to take respon [...]

    The president of my company recently encouraged all members of the leadership team to read this book I do not feel that I am being harsh in any way by giving this 1 star.I guess it might contain okay ish information for people new to management or leadership, but it is fairly basic info Have honest conversations with people at work, be authentic, ask probing questions to get to the root cause of problems, etc and blah blah That isn t fierce That s common sense I could have summed this up in a fe [...]

  3. Meghan

    The ideas and action items provided in this book were thought provoking and helpful however, I felt most of the examples were tailored to readers in management roles at companies I just couldn t relate to those ideas hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating.The stories and information I could relate to were fantastic, if shocking It was hard to sit and honestly think about how I have conversations with people I realized a lot of the time I am practicing bad conversation tactics and enter with my own [...]

    Ugh, this was a hard book to get through There are too many ideas, it s hard to pick out one that will work Also, this lady thinks she s awesome and wants to tell you all about how awesome she is She isn t awesome.

    I discovered this book while browsing through the shelves at the Chapters bookstore at 401 and Kennedy in Toronto As I flipped through the book I came across this snippet that mentioned a newly married couple The first weekend the wife wanted to talk about their relationship, the husband relented The next weekend once again the wife wanted to sit and talk about their relationship, the following weekend it was the same thing Now the man began to wonder Hey this is not what I want What s going on [...]

    This book is probably better than I think it is To me, there is no great revelation in the importance of having fiercely authentic conversations Moreover, I feel that the language was targeted at a different audience As a result, while all of the ideas were generally agreeable, there was very little that really resonated with me personally.My opinion may have also been heavily influenced by the voice of the author who did the reading The so earnest and maternal intonation just rubbed me the wron [...]

  7. Jen Schroeder

    This is one that the leadership team recently read at work I usually try to read those pretty quick so that I know what management may be trying on us next Anyway, at first I thought it was going to be a pretty boring and standard well duh management book i.e have real and honest conversations at work and it will be productive for all involved Which was, well, pretty much what it was.However, I did get a couple of gems out of it here and there, so I would recommend it to those who are intereste [...]

  8. Lee Anne

    A so so business personal relationship book that encourages you to be completely honest and ask probing questions to get to the real issue in your conversations with others A little touchy feely, easier said than done on the honesty part, anyway , but it did give me some good ideas for asking the right questions The author inserts too much of her life into the advice it may be easy and affordable for her to take a retreat and really think about things, or wake up at 4 to sip tea and meditate bef [...]

  9. Brandon

    Incredibly insightful After reading I ve decided to buy a copy for each of my coworkers for christmas Thank you Susan Scott

  10. Marjorie Elwood

    This book teaches you how to have the conversations, both at work and at home, that move things forward, that are honest, and that come from a place of deep caring I came away with some good tips and a rejuvenated desire to be forthright in my discussions However, it s not just a how to manual Scott offers a list of books she has enjoyed recently, a recipe for listening to yourself, a poem that inspires.

    Fierce Conversations, Inc is a company that works with business and industry CEOs to help them be effective leaders and build effective teams Over the years, workshop attendees encouraged Susan Scott, the CEO of the company, to publish a book to spread her message and help people engage in fierce conversations To clarify, fierce conversations are not yelling, screaming, throwing matches They are not verbal battles Fierce conversations are robust, intense, passionate, authentic dialogs that se [...]

  12. Amanda Samaha

    This book was recommended as a good read if you liked Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg Although I didn t like it as much as Sandberg book, Scott s principles for having real, focused, and direct conversations with people spoke to me The book was a bit repetitive and I found some of the anecdotes hard to relate to because so many of them were about CEOs of companies However, I began to appreciate the idea that, no matter what level you are in at a company, school, or organization your voice is importan [...]

  13. Cheryl

    Phenomenal One of the best books I ve ever read on leadership It will go on my read once a year list for sure.This book is practical, practical, practical She gives amazing tips and assignments to help you assimilate the information into your mind, heart and life So good.A fierce conversation is not a mean conversation It is one in which we come out from behind ourselves into the conversation and make it real In a fierce conversation there is neither a struggle for approval nor an attempt to per [...]

  14. Leigh

    I don t usually like to leave negative reviews but this book compelled me to In short, it is a terrible read because it teaches very little, and the little it teaches is taught in an awful way Here s the crux of the problem Susan Scott doesn t appear capable of saying anything without using an anecdote or drawing reference from things that should have no bearing on the topic eg in this book she tries to get her points across via Winnie the Pooh, what Scott s high school classmates wrote about he [...]

  15. John Overman

    I had the great pleasure of listening to this audiobook while driving to and from work.Susan Scott provides a comprehensive approach to having meaningful dialogue with others one conversation at a time She identifies seven key principles and illustrates each with real life examples In one case, a CEO must confront his sales team in order to increase collective aims without discouraging individual competitiveness In another case, Susan herself shares a unique insight while working as a secretary [...]

  16. Donna

    Scott puts forth some interesting models to use for tough conversations at work, but though she tries hard to advocate for these same type of conversations in personal relationships, I don t agree with her Being honest, facing tough issues head on with someone, is important in some situations, but you have to know when to back off a bit and Scott advocates going directly, hard forward all the time it seems.I did find some of her models helpful for the times when you need to face tough conversati [...]

  17. Margaret Zhang

    A quick, easy, but nonetheless worthwhile read The basic premise is that each relationship is made up almost solely of the conversations between the parties The rest of the book tells you how to make those conversations ones that promote integrity and authenticity.Since I read it without trying too hard too put it into practice right away, the immediate effect is limited on whether its principles and techniques are effective My hunch is that they are very effective For me, having read quite a fe [...]

  18. Don

    The type of professional self help book that has good advice but treats its readers like buffoons, forcing us to trudge through many, many unnecessary examples and repetitions as we arrive at a few very simple points which could have been made in 10 or 15 pages.

  19. Alhanouf

    Read parts of it as a curriculum requirements it force you to questions your entire life and makes you feel unease to do so if your it already lost its balance Any book that does this is worth reading I cant wait to re read it in better situations

  20. Stephanie

    I won an advance reading copy of this book through a giveaway.This book was assigned reading for work I read it along side the edition that was published in January 2004 which was the copy assigned for my job so I could get a better understanding of how books are changed when they are revised and updated This edition talked a lot about current technology and gave examples from clients she has worked with Given the choice, I would recommend reading the 2017 version over the 2004 version However [...]

  21. Alex Rodriguez

    The overall ideas I got from this book are pretty helpful and clarifying The author details 7 key ideas to improve your ability to communicate effectively and meaningfully The main downside to this book is her use of numerous quotes that don t really seem to push her ideas as much as she probably thought But overall the book has some good take a way points and is definitely a recommended read for anyone looking to work on improving any aspect of their life The truth hurts, but the truth needs to [...]

  22. JH

    Fierce Conversations covers how we should not run away from the tough issues in our life Relationships being how we interact with the world, and conversations being how those relationships improve or worsen in our day to day life.Make use of every conversation to probe meaningfully, and listen attentively It covers listening techniques, inquiring techniques, as well as self reflection.Generally a good read As with all self help books, it gets repetitive, but the first 3 chapters, at least, were [...]

  23. Jennifer

    My coach for CTI certification recommended this to me and I m glad she did Scott lays out seven basic rules for having effective, real, authentic conversations with the people you work and live with Her examples and strategies helped me give a name and new awareness to a couple of my weak spots and the phrase what is at stake here has already gotten me through several difficult conversations with groups I m a member of.

  24. Puffling

    I ll need to read this one again, because I think I can get out of it from a focused reading in which I do of the exercises Also I need to think about how I want to adapt the information for my own language patterns Specifically, a couple of the main questions she asks just sound so unnatural and I can t imagine saying them either in relationships or at work But the ideas behind them are sound.

  25. Carrie

    This book has the potential to change lives It was provided by my school as part of a training for leaders and I honestly believe that there are immensely beneficial conversations that will result from reading this book I ve had two fierce conversations with my husband following the principles in this book and have definitely enriched our relationship as a result I think this coupled with the in person training has the capacity to change the lives of many individuals.

  26. Laura Willming

    The frameworks, tactics, and principles laid out in this book were valuable for me I will definitely use them in the future Note that my job is about building relationships, I am a socially anxious person, and think about the value of conversation a lot My one qualm is that there are a lot of anecdotal stories that reinforce the principles, but sometimes they re not super relatable and boring to me.

  27. Stephanie

    This book was assigned reading for work I read it along side the edition that was published in May 2017 so I could get a better understanding of how books are changed when they are revised and updated.Fierce Conversations is a fabulous read for anyone looking to better their communication style It gives advice for communicating better both in the office and at home I highly recommend it to managers, employees, parents, and students alike.

  28. MarĂ­a Rivas

    Susan Scott in Fierce Conversations invites us to come out from behind ourselves and have meaningful conversations in which we can learn from each other, get to the core, and successfully move forward She shows us her tact, technique, and wisdom Cheers to all of those daily fierce conversations that help us define our personal and professional meaning in life

  29. Suzanne

    Recommended No bullshit or filler One of the best business self help books I ve read I read this because it was part of a corporate seminar a friend had to attend Lots of great questions to ask, and questions you want to ask and answer Great tips for staying in an authentic conversation both personally and professionally and even when you are having a conversation with yourself.
