Dictionary of Project Management Terms Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work and in Life One Conversation at a Time , by Susan Scott, Berkley Trade, 2004 ISBN 0425193373
Tough problems will never get solved if the parties involved can't even face and discuss what's really going on. How we communicate with others has everything to do with the influence (or lack thereof) we achieve in those situations. Fierce Conversations maintains that our relationships and endeavors succeed or fail one conversation at a time, and provides tools and insights for making those interactions much more productive and effective for solving hard problems. "Fierce" doesn't mean menacing or threatening. Rather, it refers to an ability to confront the reality of difficult situations and discuss issues in robust, intense, strong, powerful ways.

They show experienced project managers how to successfully transition to agile by refocusing on facilitation and collaboration, not "command and control."
