Evaporating Clouds: Moving from Conflict to Harmony
This isn’t just a book, but a creative project that is unfolding in real time.
It’s based on my 20 years of experience in coaching, facilitating, training, and mentoring, and will provide practical guidance on how to resolve conflicts using well-researched, scientific, and systems-based methods. The book covers topics such as conflict resolution, interest-based problem-solving, collective negotiations, coaching, training, leadership development, and high performance through engagement. It’s designed to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from conflict to harmony and achieve sustainable high performance in a fast-changing, complex, and global work environment.
