The Power of Positive Conflict Resolution: How to Take any Situation from Breakdown to Breakthrough in 8 Simple Steps using "The POSITIVE Approach"
by Melinda Stallings
"I just didn't KNOW HOW to address conflict. No one ever sat me down and instructed me on how to resolve conflict. I was relying on trial and error and error seemed to be winning. As a leader, I was frustrated that my managers were feeling ineffective but were reluctant to say so. We had teams with dysfunctional communication, office situations of disengagement due to employee conflicts and we were losing our best and brightest people to unresolved conflict. And then, in conjunction with hearing Melinda speak at conference, I received her book "The Power of Postivite Conflict Resolution" and it totally changed the game for me and my managers. This book has positively changed my life. I learned how to approach conflict and have "courageous conversations" to turn conflict into a tool for positive change - personally and professionally."
