By Robert Kegan, Lisa Lahey

In this intensely practical book, Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey take us on a carefully guided journey designed to help us answer why the gap is so great between our hopes, our intentions, our decisions, and the outcomes we create. They help each of us arrive at our own particular answers that can solve the puzzling gap between what we intend and what we are able to accomplish. How the Way We Talk Can Change the Way We Work provides you with the tools to create a powerful new build-it-yourself mental technology.
