The Charm of Confrontation shows how mastering the skill of confrontation—which is simply a situation of opposing parties—can open doors to your success in relationships and your career.
Different than most self-help books, The Charm of Confrontation uses my spiritual journey and background in theater to give you tools as a framework for your confrontations. And you don’t have to be an actor or a Christian to use these tools. Anyone who wants to get better at confrontation can use them!
This is not an expert-telling-you-what-to-do kind of self-help book, but the kind where I’m helping myself by writing it. I’m reminding myself of what I’ve learned on the subject, sharing it and continuing to practice my own confrontations.
If you’ve ever had a charm (i.e. lucky penny, etc.) that seemed to bring good things your way, you know how much you trusted it and had to have it with you! Believe it or not, that’s the way a well-executed confrontation can be. It can actually be the secret weapon that opens the door to higher quality relationships in your personal life and your career.
Included inside are an “Openness Scale” to assess your comfort level with letting your opinions be known to the people in your life; instructions on how to use “‘I’ Messages” to set you up for effective confrontations; explanation of 5 Confrontation Types and their features; and a survey to discover your current confrontation type.
