Crucial Conversations – Tools for Talking When Stakes are High. Authors – Patterson, Granny, McMillan and Switzler.

This is not a new book, having first been published in 2011. But it has sold over 2 million copies globally and for good reason. The skills learned in Crucial Conversations will help you to:

• Prepare for high-stakes situations
• Transform anger and hurt feelings into powerful dialogue
• Make it safe to talk about almost anything
• Be persuasive, not abrasive

Clearly great skills for business and life in general. It’s a book I read and re-read regularly. I strongly suggest grabbing a copy of Crucial Conversations and brushing up on your communication skills as often as you can.

your life will be shorter.”

Entrepreneur on Fire is a hugely popular podcast by John Lee Dumas. I had the pleasure of meeting John last year, he really is an impressive man and his podcast is incredibly popular. It’s a bit a full on at times, but if you need a dose of inspiration and motivation on a regular basis, check it out



Pretty much every day someone comes up to me and says that they want to write a book. So many people do, but the problem is they don’t know where to start. In the past five years I’ve personally coached and mentored more than 300 people to write and publish their first book. These books are across every topic imaginable (all non-fiction), and they are truly world class. People have been asking me to run book writing retreats for years, well now I do. I run a four-day retreat called Author Academy in Sanur Bali, and my next one is 24–27 August 2017.
