Book cover for Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most
When competent, sensible people do something stupid, the smartest move is to try to figure out, first, what kept them from seeing it coming and, second, how to prevent the problem from happening again.
“Ten Questions People Ask About Difficult Conversations 1. It sounds like you’re saying everything is relative. Aren’t some things just true, and can’t someone simply be wrong?   2. What if the other person really does have bad intentions – lying, bullying, or intentionally derailing the conversation to get what they want?   3. What if the other person is genuinely difficult, perhaps even mentally ill?   4. How does this work with someone who has all the power – like my boss?   5. If I’m the boss/parent, why can’t I just tell my subordinates/ children what to do?   6. Isn’t this a very American approach? How does it work in other cultures?   7. What about conversations that aren’t face-to-face? What should I do differently if I’m on the phone or e-mail?   8. Why do you advise people to “bring feelings into the workplace”? I’m not a therapist, and shouldn’t business decisions be made on the merits?   9. Who has time for all this in the real world? 10. My identity conversation keeps getting stuck in either-or: I’m perfect or I’m horrible. I can’t seem to get past that. What can I do?”
Douglas Stone, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

“Sometimes strong tastes fit strong emotions, and this was one of those times.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

“As we age, we become our parents; live long enough and we see faces repeat in time.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

“Learning that you can’t control the other person’s reaction, and that it can be destructive to try, can be incredibly liberating. It not only gives the other person the space to react however they need to, but also takes a huge amount of pressure off you. You will learn things about yourself based on their reaction, but if you are prepared to learn, you’ll feel free from the desperate need for their reaction to go one certain way.”
Douglas Stone, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most

Andrew  Peterson
“I manage.” “But at what cost?  Sooner or later you’ll reach burnout.” “I haven’t yet.” “It sneaks up on you. One day you’ll just break down into tears over something small. It’s your brain telling you you’re on overload.” “You”
Andrew Peterson, First to Kill
