Last week Alan Cohen, president of Acts of Balance Coaching, teamed up with Johna Burke for a free BurrellesLuce webinar, Those Difficult Talks for PR Pros – Finding Your MoJo in Delicate Discussionssm. (Click here to download the recording of the presentation or slides at your convenience.)
During the Q&A portion of the webinar, one attendee asked Alan to recommend some of his favorite professional books. “I am reading many different things, not all on difficult conversations, but a lot of them on effective communications [...] and I enjoy many books on managing conflicts,” Alan said. He offered these suggestions:
- The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable (Patrick Lencioni)
- Death By Meeting (Patrick Lencioni)
- Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know (Jill Geisler)
- Presenting Magically: Transforming Your State with NLP (David Shephard)
