Praise for Intentional Conversations

"Conversation seems like such a natural thing. But is it? Ken Tucker thinks it is more important than we realize - and that we need to learn how to converse! With intriguing insights and revealing stories he helps us to understand how conversation can be intentional, rewarding, and enriching in work, family, and everyday life."

—Leighton Ford, President, Leighton Ford Ministries

 

"This is a much needed book—the key frustration between employers and employees in conversation is that some genuinely do not know how to have a dialogue; and when they do, there often is void because of what was or was not said. Providing a tool to help people positively construct a conversation is fantastic. I also like your use of analogies in the book."

—Florence Hamm, Consultant

 

Intentional Conversations will shake up how you think about conversations. Ken will set you on a new trajectory to creating productive conversations that advance mission-critical organizational objectives, promote relational longevity and take the fear out of difficult interactions. Using the practical tools provided in Intentional Conversations is like having a personal conversation coach guiding you each step of the way!"

—Jenny Rain, Communications Director
 

"Ken's new book is very profound. What a startling but simple concept that can strategically enhance relationships in organizations, groups, and marriages. The SECRET concept is rememberable and easy to embrace. Ken brings forth in Intentional Conversations how beneficial having a meaningful conversation really is, but the true power of the book is that it clearly explains how to have an intentional conversation."

—Robert Jacks,
