I am deeply grateful that so many of you have found this book Courageous Conversations Connect, helpful as you embark on your healing journey. I have learned over the many years of being a therapist as well as being a part of lived and shared experiences personally, professionally, relationally, familially and spiritually, that there are times in our lives when we all need to muster the courage to have difficult talks which I like to call Courageous Conversations. I believe that most times, we are fearful of having these conversations because we are unsure of the outcome and ultimately believe that it will lead to disconnection, cut-offs or loss. In my experience over the years, if we are courageous enough to have the conversation; the outcome more often than not, leads to us connecting with ourselves and the people who matter to us most. These conversations do not have to lead to despair, sadness or disappointment. As a matter a fact, they have the power to lead to quite the opposite; hopefulness, joy and contentment. Thus, the following can result from reading this book about how Courageous Conversations Connect. When Courageous Conversations Connect with ourselves, we emerge as better versions of "us" as a result of engaging in radical self-care. When Courageous Conversations Connect with our relationships, we emerge stronger by learning how to speak truth to power while not losing our humility in the process. When Courageous Conversations Connect with our spiritual selves during life's transitions, we emerge with a more satisfied and fulfilled life by choosing to let go of the pain and turn it into power. When Courageous Conversations Connect with our intention, we emerge with the ability to reset our mindset; ready and excited to live our BEST Lives with promise, power, purpose and abundance. This is why I have chosen to call this book Courageous Conversations Connect and I am confident that reading it will make a difference in your life as well as in the relationships you value and treasure most. Enjoy your journey, one Courageous Conversation at a Time! Dr. Argie J. Allen Wilson, Ph.D.

Courageous Conversations is designed to assist with the complexities of pastoral supervision in a variety of settings, such as local congregations, seminary programs of field education, clinical pastoral education, clinical training of spiritual directors and certified pastoral counselors, and more. The preparation and training of supervisors is diverse and often learned through 'on-the-job-training.' This book draws on a wide variety of experienced supervisors in clinical pastoral education to seminary faculty members. The topics covered in the book address very pragmatic aspects of supervision, for pastors in local congregations who supervise seminary interns to well-developed theoretical aspects of supervisory education that are utilized in clinical pastoral education. Readers of this book will benefit from theoretical viewpoints as well as practical hands-on application to their ministry. Special attention is given to the task, purpose, and methods of pastoral supervision, and helpful suggestions are provided for working with important issues such as pastoral identity, skill development, attending to ethics, postmodernism, gender, sexuality and more.

All of us struggle at times with finding the right words to say to an employee, a friend, a spouse, or a neighbor. We tend to be timid and hide our true feelings because we are not sure how to respond. What to Say and How to Say It provides us with a guide or road map on how to handle difficult situations and do so in a most professional manner. It's a proven fact that the best communicators are not the best talkers; they are the best listeners. What to Say and How to Say It based on the compelling research supporting emotional intelligence and the work of Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence gives specific prompts or language helpful for entering, engaging in, and exiting courageous conversations. Courageous conversations are those discussions we all need to have, oftentimes with people we care about, don't care about, or need to care about. These are the conversations that will help us make it through difficult times, get over hurdles that are blocking relationship building, and improve living and working conditions for everyone involved. Skills in courageous conversations help to build emotional intelligence.

We've been talking about changing corporate America for decades. Decades. And yet no real change has occurred. At least not when it comes to equality for all. Honestly, the talk is lip service for most. Why? Because the dominant group will not give up power willingly. So what will it take to originate authentic change for corporate America in today's climate? To achieve equality for all? Our country is running at a fever pitch. And so is our business world. And it seems there's no solution. Until you talk to Trudy Bourgeois. She knows the solution. She lives the solution. And she teaches the solution. The solution for our world today is this: courageous conversations. Courageous conversations about the difficult topics that get to the emotional level to create buy-in. At ALL levels of corporate America, top-to-bottom and bottom-to-top. Nothing happens until we talk about the truth and get to the core of the situation. Trudy takes the lead in those conversations right here and now. Throughout this groundbreaking book, she lights our path through the hard topics, through the tough and uncomfortable conversations, in such a way as to speak the truth in love - something she does well. If you are a leader of people (which is all of us), then settle in and get ready to learn and grow. Trudy Bourgeois takes her own personal and professional life experiences and the experiences of hundreds of leaders who were interviewed across generations and genders for this book provides. She provides a roadmap to a place called "deep democracy." It is in this place where cultures are bred that level the playing field, unleash potential, and afford everyone an equal opportunity to authentically contribute at their highest level. Trudy isn't afraid to have the courageous conversations necessary for true change and equality to finally take place in corporate America. If you want to experience success as a leader in today's world, you will want to not only read this book but also think long and hard about your habits, behaviors and patterns that shape how you engage across differences. Your success depends upon it.

My intent for writing this book is to take you on a journey that touches a place in you - your heart. If you believe, like I do, that truth is the way forward ... this book is for you. If you do not believe truth is the way forward ... this book is for you. I believe the world can change and heal when the truth is told from the heart. I want to encourage you to be willing to take a chance. To stand up using your voice to speak up for the truth, that lays on your heart. Allow your courageous self to step into full view. Show the world who you are. Say proudly, this is where I stand. Say I am here to be heard. As you take off and fly, I ask you to remember that your own discovery is only part one of a two-part journey. Thankfully, there is always another person or other persons to consider to invite into your world of courageous conversation. As you engage them, be understanding and appreciate their difference as a gift to you. This is where speaking what is on your heart, speaking what you feel, and speaking what you think begins. It is a personal challenge that will be both delightful and disappointing at times. This is what your living is all about. This book speaks to how you can re-script your story by looking inside yourself through self-reflection and curiosity, and by outside yourself with questions that inspire empathy, compassion, and yes, courageous truth. There is a daily Truth mirror practice guide to encourage you to ask, and answer questions. At the end of each story there is the invitation to reflect and write in your journal to tell your story your way. The intent of this book is to inspire you and to increase your understanding of how and when you speak your truth. Speaking what is on your heart, speaking what you are feeling, and thinking deeply are the pathway to embracing who you are. As you become reacquainted with yourself, my hope is that it causes you to smile. It is not always a comfortable journey; but it is one worth taking. It is a joy for me to share these insights and real stories of other people lives with you, as they have been told to me. The impact and joy of storytelling is that it can touch us in places you sometimes cannot get to on your own. You will recognize some of the stories as your story. As I listened to the stories, my joys, my pains, my delights, and my disappointments surfaced. All have brought me to a place of wonder, curiosity, and surprise. I am Looking forward to the ongoing adventure of living my life truthfully in the moments as they present themselves, as I hope you will be too. "Your Voice Matters" comes to you with my heartfelt appreciation of your willingness to take this leap of faith into your journey forward. It will offer you awareness and insights lifting some of the same feelings I have felt to your consciousness and others you did not know were there.

Courageous Coaching Conversations is a leadership fable that uses a unique approach--making you the center of the story--to present key steps in preparing for and successfully navigating through the challenging and important communications we all face. Whether you are a leader or an individual contributor in your organization, there will undoubtedly be many times where you will find yourself in a difficult situation. These situations come in all shapes and sizes, and typically involve people with different goals, opinions, and interests, in varying kinds of work relationships-- boss-to-subordinate, peer-to-peer, or even subordinate-to-boss. These situations impact results and the performance level of the person, team, or organization, as well as the emotions of the people involved. The inability of people to effectively connect in these situations leads to an overall dissatisfaction in relationships, team culture, performance, and results. To avoid these pitfalls, people need the skills to have a courageous coaching conversation. You know that you are in need of a courageous coaching conversation when you encounter the following situations: * You need to get beyond the surface level of the situation and understand the heart of the matter. * Your messages are not being received or are misunderstood by the other person or persons involved. * Your ideas are met with continuous resistance. * People are not following through on assignments and commitments. * Controversial and uncomfortable situations are not being addressed. * Problems remain unresolved. Research reveals that there are some very predictable traps that we fall into when discussing challenging issues or topics with others. This innate reaction is tied to the fight-or-flight response. Regardless of who we are, these very predictable patterns emerge during important, complex, and sensistive conversations. Understanding what these patterns are and how to craft more productive conversations is the goal of this book. The concepts underlying courageous conversations aren't abstract, and they aren't theoretical. They're really, really simple.
