Been in a confrontation with a difficult person at work, at home, or in public and no matter how hard you tried to diffuse the situation, things just got worse?
Had to deliver bad news or disappoint someone and didn’t know what to say to convey empathy while keeping strong boundaries at the same time?
Been in a sensitive situation where you took the high road OR wished you would’ve had the tools to handle a difficult person without becoming one yourself?
Wanted to support someone in a tough spot but couldn’t think of the “right” thing to say – so you said nothing OR came up with the perfect response on your way home?
Had to accept responsibility for something you couldn’t control and you weren’t sure how to stand up for yourself without escalating the issue?
Dealt with someone who was constantly belittling and gaslighting you by making disrespectful comments followed by “I’m just joking” or “You’re so dramatic?”

There is no arguing that the world is more disconnected than it has been in recent memory.
From race to religion, vaccines to vegans, and everything in between, Talking on Eggshells? encourages us to address sensitive situations head-on in a respectful way that gets your message seen and heard (instead of our message getting lost in our mess.)
This book teaches real-life, easy-to-implement strategies that are proven to build deeper relationships with coworkers, friends, family, spouses, children, and perhaps most importantly, YOURSELF.
