In order to have a healthy, thriving organization, the people within the organization must be aligned and thriving. Nothing breeds inefficiency and counterproductive behavior more than unhealthy, unresolved conflict. When conflict occurs—wherever it occurs—what does it look like to live out our core belief that people matter? I believe this is one of the most important conversations we should be having right now, not just at work, but in every area of our lives. This invaluable book provides the practical insight and strategies to not only understand conflict, but to navigate it well. It belongs in the hands of every leader I know!
