Introducing a new strategy that changes the brain to enhance any conversation
In their groundbreaking research, prominent neuroscientist Andrew Newberg, M.D., working with Mark Robert Waldman, has discovered a valuable strategy called Compassionate Communication. In twelve clear steps it allows us to create a special bond with whomever we are speaking, a bond that aligns our brains to work together as one. In this unique state—free from conflict and distrust—we can communicate more effectively, listen more deeply, collaborate without effort, and succeed more quickly at any task.
Using data collected from MBA students, couples in therapy, and caregivers, Newberg and Waldman have seen again and again that Compassionate Communication repositions a difficult conversation for a satisfying conclusion. Whether you are negotiating with your boss or your employees, arguing with your spouse, or coping with your kids, Compassionate Communication is a simple and unbeatable way to achieve a winwin dialogue to help you reach your goals.

Pause 30 seconds after each sentence of this review... Research based mindfulness technique. I use it successfully with friends and my mentally ill clients. Two or three sentences and we both feel appreciated and cherished. This is because the extraordinarily simple method puts you in the heart of this moment with the other person. The rest of the books supports what you learned by providing analysis of research explaining why we need it; why it works. Use it and improve every area of your life...activate those frontal lobes.
