Summary
A Safe Place for Dangerous Truths is a welcome guide to creating a workplace where people can talk frankly without fear for their jobs ... even if it means dredging up deep-buried conflicts or calling attention to their own shortcomings. A behavioral science consultant, Annette Simmons provides the key through the formal process of "dialogue." More than ordinary conversation, this specific group give-and-take technique opens minds, eases anxiety, and encourages straightforward truth-telling. Packed with step-by-step "how-to" guidelines and helpful scenarios, this book gives readers the critical insights and skills to facilitate the process and bring the power of "dialogue" to any situation
