Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Conflict Coaching, Tricia S. Jones and Ross Brinkert have made a timely contribution to the advancement of the field of conflict analysis and dispute resolution. They simultaneously present a clear vision of the role of a conflict coach as well as a persuasive argument for a new and expanded mind set on who it is we say we are and what it is we say we do. The book makes credible arguments about the need for the conflict coach and then clearly blows open a much needed area of practice that has been unnecessarily restrained by outdated and untestable notions. The authors accomplish this by combining first rate scholarship with an easy to read guide on the practice of conflict coaching to create an evolutionary path within the field. From this book expect to see a flurry of other scholars and practitioners follow their lead in both print and practice."

(Brian Polkinghorn, Ph.D. 2008-02-24)

"Conflict Coaching is a book that should be in every corporate library and in every chief human resource officer’s desk so others can see it! Moreover, this book should be provided for every young, high-potential corporate manager and be required reading in business school executive education programs." (Frank P. Brennan, JE. 2008-02-24)

"Jones and Brinkert offer example case studies illustrating the subject of each chapter, scholarly research throughout, a wonderfully approachable text and a companion CD of tools that makes a perfect addition to any Ombudsperson’s library. Not only is this a terrific resource for us LTCOs, but also for Organizational Ombuds and other ADR professionals and practitioners seeking to clarify the whats and hows of empowering those we serve to better respond to the conflicts they face." (Drew Strayer 2008-09-17)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Basia S. on March 19, 2010
Format: Paperback
Jones and Brinkert have written an excellent book. It's well-organized and presents a very clear application of the narrative approach to conflict coaching. The CD is a nice resource, as it provides a PowerPoint presentation useful for teaching and learning, as well as coach and client worksheets; however, the client worksheets need some serious editing -- words are missing making some sentences meaningless, and at times the language is so scholarly as to be off-putting to many of the people I would use this with. Moreover, the client worksheets often refer to the client in the third person, which is odd since the worksheets are intended to be for them, not about them. This is definitely worth purchasing for the book alone, but be prepared to make some revisions and corrections if you plan to use the client worksheets.

Format: Paperback
This book provides an in-depth explanation of the Comprehensive Conflict Coaching model with a strong foundation built on research and theory from a variety of ADR practitioners, authors and theorists. The great thing about this book is that the text provides practical tools and methods to take your skills and awareness to a deeper level and share them with those we serve. Jones and Brinkert offer example case studies illustrating the subject of each chapter, scholarly research throughout, a wonderfully approachable text and a companion CD of tools. Not only is this a terrific resource for a Long-Term Care Ombudsman like me, but also for Organizational Ombuds and other ADR professionals and practitioners seeking to clarify the whats and hows of empowering those we serve to more effectively respond to the conflicts they face.

This is a fantastic book. It explains the process very well and gives a lot of background information on conflict coaching and the different theories. And tons of amazing questions to ask clients. Definitely will look into taking the class.
