I found the theoretical stuff made it too difficult to work out exactly what I needed to do to be successful. I didn’t need theories; I wanted to know, in any situation, exactly what I needed to do and why it would make a positive difference.
On the other hand I found plenty of useful checklists and general advice, but nothing that really seemed to provide a clear, flexible framework I could implement straight away.
What I wanted were actionable tips and strategies that were underpinned by sound psychological theory and experiential evidence.
I want this book to help you become a better manager through improving each and every conversation you have.
I want to provide you with a helpful framework as you seek to lead and inspire others through the conversations you have with them.

“If you follow the advice and concepts given here, but do it by the book, you will escape the turgid performance management trap and discover the secrets of how to really unlock potential and unleash true talent.”—Steve Engwell

Sarah Harvey stands for making things better in work and life through more deliberate conversations. By deliberate I mean focused, compassionate, thoughtful, modeled, planned, structured, fluid and all those opposites, linked, sequenced and random things that make up the world of conversations.
Not an easy feat, yet through Savvy Conversations, Sarah has her own craftful way to approach how we communicate, engage, influence, help and guide others. If you’re feeling like you don’t control the outcomes of enough of the conversations in your work and life, then this book will instantly give you acquired skill, confidence and tactics that tip that balance towards you.
Sarah Harvey has written a book that is a real workplace gem.
In the fast paced and often stressful world of communication overload, Sarah has shown us innovative skills and tools so that workplace issues and differences can be solved amicably at the right time and in the right way for employers and employees alike.
Who would not want to know how to diffuse conflicts swiftly and expertly? Give feedback that is both timely and sensitive? Have conversations that really engage and motivate employees? However this is a real skill and takes practice to really be effective.
Savvy Conversations is based on robust research and psychological theories and models which will ensure a culture free from psychological pitfalls. The use of Transactional Analysis and innovative communicative models and tools ensure we really understand how to manage people who may view things from a different perspective. We are introduced to key relational methods and processes to aid even the most challenging of conversations.
This is a must-read book for leaders in both the public and private sectors who are looking to ensure harmony and conflict free working environments.
@JWebbConsulting @richardosman Next one due Sept I think 🤔
I’m rather late to the party here but was saving this (and the next book) for my holiday in a few weeks. Decided it’s a #staycation kind of weekend so just about to delve in. #TheThursdayMurderClub @richardosman https://t.co/27BTJc9gZP
Took the day off yesterday for a family day out. At least once every half hour today I think it’s Sunday and have to remind myself it’s ‘only’ Saturday. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. 💙#WhatDayIsIt #DayOff https://t.co/8UEi2X3MYj

Such an eloquent piece of writing that gets the message across with impact. No need to rant. No need to attack. Just saying what needs to be said and encouraging ongoing dialogue. 💙
