The Top Inspirational Quotes From The Book Crucial Conversations

I admit, I struggling with this concept of the book “Crucial Conversations”. This book talks about the importance of having that crucial conversation with a worker, family member or friend.

Below are some great quotes from the book. Enjoy.

“People who are skilled at dialogue do their best to make it safe for everyone to add their meaning to the shared pool–even ideas that at first glance appear controversial, wrong, or at odds with their own beliefs. Now, obviously they don’t agree with every idea; they simply do their best to ensure that all ideas find their way into the open.” 

― Kerry Patterson, Crucial Conversations

“The Pool of Shared Meaning is the birthplace of synergy” 

― Kerry Patterson

“The key to real change lies not in implementing a new process, but in getting people to hold one another accountable to the process.” 

― Kerry Patterson

“Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret. —AMBROSE BIERCE” 

― Kerry Patterson

“Nothing fails like success. In other words, when a challenge in life is met by a response that is equal to it, you have success. But when the challenge moves to a higher level, the old, once successful response no longer works—it fails; thus, nothing fails like success.” 

― Kerry Patterson

“Let’s say that your significant other has been paying less and less attention to you. You realize he or she has a busy job, but you still would like more time together. You drop a few hints about the issue, but your loved one doesn’t handle it well.” 

― Kerry Patterson

The void created by the failure to communicate is soon filled with poison, drivel, and misrepresentation.

-C. NORTHCOTE PARKINSON

“People who are skilled at dialogue do their best to make it safe for everyone to add their meaning to the shared pool–even ideas that at first glance appear controversial, wrong, or at odds with their own beliefs. Now, obviously they don’t agree with every idea; they simply do their best to ensure that all ideas find their way into the open.” 

― Kerry Patterson

“As much as others may need to change, or we may want them to change, the only person we can continually inspire, prod, and shape—with any degree of success—is the person in the mirror.” ― Kerry Patterson
