An award-winning conflict consultant offers a new path to take when agreement and collaboration seem impossible, and teaches us that when conflict resolution fails, we can achieve freedom instead—even without others’ cooperation.
A founding CEO and his top salesperson are engaged in a heated clash over her compensation package.
A mother and daughter are locked in a nasty cycle of blame and attack.
A high-profile executive team is struggling with aggressive political infighting.
In all these cases, every effort to talk it out has been unsuccessful.
Where can you turn when your attempts to resolve conflict fail? Most approaches emphasize collaboration. You are supposed to sit down, calmly talk through your differences, and find a solution. But what if nothing seems to work, no matter what you do?
When situations resist resolution, the Optimal Outcomes Method teaches us conflict freedom.
