Publisher's Summary

Improved Audio Quality
What if one of the most powerful avenues to achieving a balance of peacefulness and productivity - defined here as happiness - is so close that you may have missed it? What if, by taking a new look here, you can open truly unprecedented possibilities for yourself, your effectiveness, your relationships, as well as your emotional and physical well-being? And what if an incredible variety of your experiences and results - personally and professionally - have for years been connected to this, whether you've been aware of it or not?
This is the promise of this compelling book by veteran consultant, certified personal coach, and seminar leader Chalmers Brothers: a new way of understanding language provides a powerful new foundation and a new set of tools for designing and re-designing your life, at home and at work, and everywhere in between. This is especially relevant for everyone seeking meaningful change in their lives, as well as those for whom building and maintaining mutually-beneficial relationships is important. And it's particularly useful for leaders, managers, salespeople, and anyone else who "gets paid to have effective conversations"!
Having nothing to do with grammar, sentence structure, or nouns and verbs, this book instead takes you on a journey through the many ways in which your internal and external conversations - fully entwined and braided together with your moods, emotions, and physical body - are incredibly active, creative and generative (vs. merely passive and descriptive).
