Tough Talk

Tough Talk book stackAfter presenting a workshop on how to have a difficult conversation at work, business consultants Andrea Hopke and Becky Dannenfelser of Clearwater Consulting Group knew they had a hot topic for a book.

Building on the response to a prep sheet they created for how to prepare for a difficult conversation at work, they identified a list of subjects that respondents and clients found most challenging as basis for their book

I was in early on brainstorming sessions and suggested adding a worksheet at the end of every chapter so that people could reflect and plan their own next steps based on insights from that particular topic. With statistics cited in the book, I created charts that were used both in the book and a companion Powerpoint presentation.

When we couldn’t find a stock photo that was exactly what we wanted, I art directed a custom photo shoot so we could get the perfect visual. I also formatted the interior pages and worked with the vendors for printing books, getting listed on Amazon, and writing a press release that was distributed to media outlets around the country.

Since their book published in 2014, I’ve worked extensively with Clearwater Consulting Group to give their brand a cohesive look and I’m proud to serve as the marketing arm of their team.
