In her career as an NPR host, journalist Celeste Headlee has interviewed hundreds of people from all walks of life, and if there's one thing she's learned, it's that it's hard to overestimate the power of conversation and its ability to both bridge gaps and deepen wounds. In We Need to Talk, she shares what she's learned on the job about how to have effective, meaningful and respectful conversations in every area of our lives. Now more than ever, Headlee argues, we must begin to talk to and, more importantly, listen to one another - including those with whom we disagree.
We Need to Talk gives listeners 10 simple tools to help facilitate better conversations, ranging from the errors we routinely make (put down the smartphone when you're face to face with someone) to the less obvious blind spots that can sabotage any conversation, including knowing when not to talk, being aware of our own bias and avoiding putting yourself in the centre of the discussion.
Whether you're gearing up for a big conversation with your boss, looking to deepen or improve your connection with a relative or trying to express your child's needs to a teacher, We Need to Talk will arm you with the skills you need to create a productive dialogue.
