In this book, readers will learn how to diffuse conflict by tapping into tools that will help them identify personalized solutions for every problem. Conflict can be destructive. Thousands of years of history have shown that human beings have always struggled to resolve disputes calmly and nonviolently. Now our society has less respect for its institutions and authority figures than ever because most people don’t know how to lead out of a conflict stalemate. But, says Hesha Abrams, it doesn’t have to be this way. Holding the Calm is the ultimate guide to help mediators of all kinds develop workable, immediate conflict management skills to approach workplace issues, lawsuits, marriage disputes, and everyday arguments. It is chock full of tools and techniques designed to facilitate civilized discussions involving drastically opposing viewpoints. The book’s short chapters are written in an easy, accessible format to impart rich skills, anecdotes, and lessons that will arm leaders with the best approaches to conflict. This book teaches readers how to pick the right solution for the right situation—like when to turn lemons into lemonade and when to reach for the tequila and salt. Reading group discussion guide available in book.
