5.0 out of 5 stars Best Leadership Book Out There!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 June 2020
I got this book following being a Head of Department and realising I wasn’t holding my team to account. I was truly afraid of difficult conversations and I had spoken to other leaders about it but quick discussions weren’t helping. It isn’t an exaggeration when I say this book has solved ALL of my problems. It covers everything – why to have the conversations, when to have them, how to start them, how to structure them, how to end them, common issues people find. Honestly I feel so much more confident now about ‘healthy conflict’ and I genuinely feel that dealing with difficult conversations makes me a better person and colleague, not a worse one (this is how I used to feel!) – If this is something that concerns you, or even if it doesn’t, get it. Even if you’re not in leadership this book is great – it’s also helped me with tricky conversations with students and parents.
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant

I can not recommend this book highly enough. In the very short time needed to read and digest this book, it has changed my practice. I am recommending this book to everyone.
