what??? MORE conflict??? no! it’s resolution time!

When I talk to HR people I wonder how they make it through even a single day.

We’ll be blogging here about the ways in which disputes arise and how they can be resolved, transformed or transcended.  The ABCs of Conflict Resolution takes on the challenge of disputes from a general perspective, often focusing on those conflicts that have ended up in the hands of lawyers.  A fate that no one should ever have to endure!

The purpose of this blog is to make specific to the HR professional’s job many of the general conflict resolution insights contained in the book.

We’re here for you.
