"Conversations UNCHAINED" 
is here!

"Conversations UNCHAINED" pulls together 16 years worth of real-world leadership experience, research, and training, and I'm so proud to share it. This book and embedded workbook addresses the anxiety, doubt, and uncertainty that often cloud our ability to communicate effectively, and provides concepts and principles to help you enter critical conversations with informed confidence. It's a call to action to engage in personal and professional development and to challenge yourself to step beyond your comfort zone. It will encourage you to navigate the complexities of human connection, transforming the way that you engage in critical conversations moving forward. This book is not only about unlocking the power of effective communication, it is also about unlocking the potential within each of us to create more meaningful relationships through the concept of ACT (authenticity, connection, and transparency).
