Dr. Donadio is the only healthcare professional I have heard say, "No one heals or fixes anyone. Only we heal ourselves" (pg. 34). So many times while reading this I got a sense of deep-rooted peace, as if something inside of me was saying, "Yes... yes, this is right. That's exactly what I want," especially when she talks about the essential needs of human beings. It seems so simple when Dr. Donadio puts it into writing, yet few of us acknowledge these basic needs: autonomy, respect, appreciatio...more

I love books. I have an affinity with words and ideas and an expansion of my own knowledge base. I tend to gravitate towards books that offer ways for improving self and how I view the world at large. With that said, I don't always finish every book that I begin to read--Changing Behavior is definitely an exception to the rule. From the moment I began reading Dr. Donadio's work, I found myself very intrigued by the concepts that she laid out; they were very easy to understand and follow and offe...more

Those of us who believe that unconditional and nourishing relationships are central to our thriving and success as human beings will find a treasure trove in the new book Changing Behavior, authored by Georgianna Donadio, founder of the National Institute of Whole Health. I don't recall a description of the presence of a coach, in coaching literature, teachings, and related theories, that comes close to as rich, comprehensive, and evocative as Georgianna's concept of Pure Presence. The book brin...more
"Changing Behavior" is the type of book that provokes questions, but also provides insight and wisdom to address the problems so common in our relationships. The questions, "Why didn't it work out this time? What am I doing wrong?" are things we have all asked ourselves. This book helps to answer those questions and also provides ways of changing how we "do" our relationship communications.

The author appears to have spent many years researching and sifting through the rubble of relationship-comm...more

This book is very well written, loaded with research and references to support the information in the book. I really appreciate that. I also appreciate and enjoyed the style, tone and accessibility of the content. I applied the 12 Steps of Pure Presence with my wife not long after reading it and was surprised that it actually enhanced the connection. We were more relaxed and willing to discuss a particular financial issue that had been on the table for a while. I will keep applying these steps w...more
As a publishing and editing professional, I am greatly impressed by Georgianna Donadio's eye opening book. A unique combination of beautiful illustrations, clear and concise prose, thorough and fascinating research and above all, a truly revolutionary approach to improve and enrich all types and forms of communication. This timely book should be read by one and all. It has the potential to facilitate a cultural shift in how we communicate and interact with one another. Highly recommended reading...more

What I really enjoyed about this book was the straight forward style as well as the content. As I do not like to slog through long winded explanations when something can be presented more succinctly, this book was a pleasure to read not only for the helpful information about making better relationships but also for the ease of reading. This book I recommend!
A book about how to have empathetic conversation. The ideas inside were developed for health care industry, but also seemed to be mostly relevant to personal relationships. marked it as to-read
