My book, I Hear You: The Surprisingly Simple Skill Behind Extraordinary Relationships, is now consistently the #1 best-seller on in the following categories:

  • Communication in Management
  • Couples & Family Therapy
  • Parent & Adult Child Relationships
  • Counseling

And very close to #1 in many more.

In addition, it was just awarded the 2018 IPA Book Award!

To be honest, I’m both shocked and humbled by the success of this book. It’s been just over 8 months since publication and the feedback and success has been overwhelming. Few things bring me greater joy than seeing positive reviews roll in on Amazon or Goodreads, and they continue to roll in!

I will soon be speaking at multiple business and leadership events.

I will be a guest on several podcasts.

I was asked to create a relationship course for an online training program.

A publisher in Korea just requested translation rights for the title.

You have got to be kidding me.

My purpose in writing the book was to share a simple-yet-powerful skill that made a significant difference in my life. I am beyond grateful for the now-thousands of readers who have found it equally valuable, and continue to share the word. Thank you for the support and for spreading the word!

    I’ve been a self-help junkie for years & years, have even thought self-help but saw the error of my ways in communication while listening to you talk about your book on The Art of Charm podcast. A huge AHA moment for me … thanks!
