Everyone can benefit from reading this book, college students, young professionals, and seasoned veterans in the workforce. If you have to work with other people, you can benefit from Shawn's insights in this book! The book has great content and helpful examples from executives who use her tips and get fantastic results. I personally use her tips daily and they are a game changer!

Conversations that get Results and Inspire Collaboration is now my favorite business book. I thought I already knew all there was to know about successful collaboration, but the numerous examples Shawn included in this book made me see where I had failed to collaborate effectively with certain peers and managers in my past. I realize now that as the person who wanted a different outcome, in those situations I should have taken the initiative to adapt to the many different styles and workplace motivators of my peers. The order of topics in the book is brilliant -starting with the basics of Preferred Communication Styles, Workplace Motivators, all the way through the right types of conversations to engage. I wish everyone would read this book so we can eliminate unnecessary conflict while working together!

I’m a telecommuter who works from home, but I still have to collaborate on projects with other employees who are also telecommuters. Even though most of my interactions are over the phone, I still need to do what I can to develop relationships with the people I work with. Reading this book has helped me to do a better job of that. When I call Joe, I know he likes to spend a few minutes chatting about his weekend before we get down to project details. Before I read Shawn Hayashi’s book, I didn’t take the time to ask Joe about his family or weekend plans, and I think Joe had the impression that I didn’t like him. We could work together, but Joe would never go the extra mile for me. Now that I know more about Joe’s family life and ask him about it regularly, he’s much better about helping me out when I need it. It seems like a small thing, but collaboration is about connection, so whatever helps you connect better with people will help you get more things done at work. For that reason, I highly recommend this book. It helps you understand people so you can connect with them more easily.

Collaborating is one of those things that sound easier than it is, and this book really affirmed how difficult and complex it can be to wrok with other people. At the same time the book offered practical advice, case studies, and  application exercises that do help in figuring out how to deal effectively with other people. The section on communication styles and motivators was a real eye opener for me. Suddenly, behaviors of my co-workers made sense, and not only that, I had a how-to guide for interacting with them. I also found the section on Emergent Leader Roles incredibly useful. I never realized that any team or committee would have hidden leaders who influence the group in different ways. Once I learned about these roles, I could immediately see how they played out on my own team. Now I feel more in control for  having an understanding of the group dynamics at work in team meetings. Over all, I would say that this book offers a lot of good, specific information for improving day-to-day interactions with people.  I even found it an effective tool for interacting with my teenage son who, as I discovered, has a communication style entirely different from my own.I not only recommend this book to anyone in business, I would also recommend it for parents, teachers, coaches--anyone who needs a guide for getting the best out of others.
