Today I had an opportunity to attend day 1 of a 2 day workshop on “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High.” This is an outstanding book I first heard about thanks to Miguel Guhlin (@mguhlin) about 5 years ago and his helpful habit of blogging his notes for many books he reads. Our presenter, Dr. Stacy Nelson, shared numerous book recommendations throughout his engaging and interactive workshop. Here are linked tweets to the 13 books he recommended, plus one more by an author Stacy mentioned. I’ve also created a List.ly list of these books, with links to each one on Amazon.com. I used the hashtag #book2read for most of these recommended books, and you can archive ALL the books I’ve tagged like this on Twitter via my TweetNest archive. While some of these titles fit under the category of “business books,” many are relevant to parents as well as educators. Many also touch on themes of personal productivity, teamwork and leadership.

This last book wasn’t mentioned by Stacy but is the latest publication by Philip Zimbardo, who was a recommended author. This is one I actually purchased today and am going to read soon.

For a taste of Stacy Nelson’s engaging presentation style and ideas, check out the six minute YouTube video, “Stacy Nelson: Motivational Keynote Speaker” from Executive Speakers Bureau. (@ExecSpeakers)
