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.

Simmons firmly believes: "When a group learns how to discuss the undiscussable, they learn how to solve the unsolvable." 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.
