Abstract
Language is the primary tool by which we communicate. Kegan and Lahey argue, though, that the words we use do more than represent feelings and attitudes. The very choice itself of one word or expression over another can determine feelings and attitudes and--most importantly--actions. In order to demonstrate their complex concept of the role of language in transformational learning, they offer this book, in part, as an instruction manual for collaborative exercises in self-assessment. They identify seven languages that one should adopt to overcome both internal and organization resistance to change.

A comic strip conversation is a conversation between two or more people which incorporates the use of simple drawings. These drawings serve to illustrate an ongoing communication, providing additional support to individuals who struggle to comprehend the quick exchange of information which occurs in a conversation. Experience with comic strip conversations indicates they may be an effective tool for parents and professionals working with students with autism and other developmental disabilitites. In addition, the use of a basic set of symbols are used to illustrate social skills which are abstract and difficult for students with autism to understand.
