Product description

Review

Agile Conversations is a must-read for anyone willing to bring [their] organization to a higher level. Improved conversations allow for curiosity and transparency, which enables collaboration and learning, which in turn brings the right culture for high performance. Jeffrey and Squirrel take you on this fantastic journey of improving the conversations you have on a daily basis, both inside and outside the organization.--Thierry de Pauw, Continuous Delivery Consultant


Agile Conversations provides much needed guidance on how to have the key discussions that form the foundation for strong and resilient working relationships, as well as a toolbox full of techniques for troubleshooting when conversations go awry. Full of practical, real-world examples, this book is a must read for anyone who has ever been frustrated or puzzled by interactions at work.--Elizabeth Hendrickson, Technology Executive and Author of Explore It!


Conversation is a skill that we learn before were consciously aware of what learning is. As a result, we may assume that were competent at communicating based on successful outcomes. Squirrel and Fredericks book outlines actionable ways that we can measure our competence and improve our skill. This is a must-read for any manager, and beneficial for everyone working in a software environment.--Andy Palmer, RiverGlide Co-Founder, Consultant CTO


For people from the technical walk of life, soft skills can sometimes be frustratingly ephemeral. The practical exercises in this book give a solid base to explore the development of empathy and understanding as a concrete work and life skill.--Wouter Lagerweij, Agile/Continuous Delivery Coach, tide.co


I have come to the determination that the first and foremost rule in successfully transforming a group of people of any ilk--corporation or social group--is by helping the individuals each see and understand the change as it pertains to them and help them align with the reasons for the change. Both of these aspects are more easily said than done. Agile Conversations is an indispensable tool to help parties make and accept change. Think of it as your new change management textbook for change big (Kotter sized) or small (a single process within a value stream).--Matt Gelbawks, Agile Transformation Leader
