Introducing a new strategy that changes the brain to enhance any conversation

In their groundbreaking research, prominent neuroscientist Andrew Newberg, M.D., working with Mark Robert Waldman, has discovered a valuable strategy called Compassionate Communication. In twelve clear steps it allows us to create a special bond with whomever we are speaking, a bond that aligns our brains to work together as one. In this unique state--free from conflict and distrust--we can communicate more effectively, listen more deeply, collaborate without effort, and succeed more quickly at any task.

Using data collected from MBA students, couples in therapy, and caregivers, Newberg and Waldman have seen again and again that Compassionate Communication repositions a difficult conversation for a satisfying conclusion. Whether you are negotiating with your boss or your employees, arguing with your spouse, or coping with your kids, Compassionate Communication is a simple and unbeatable way to achieve a winwin dialogue to help you reach your goals.

The Book gives the tips on how to handle confrontations, tone down the negative emotions and be more successful in positive outcomes!
Basically, calm down first with breathing or time out, then begin with a compliment, give constructive summary and a possible resolution!
While giving some helpful tips, this book is too long and repetitive!
There are much better books on the topic out there!
