Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book and I mean both in information and intonation. It is clear that Mark Adams cares deeply about this subject and about the reader. His tone made me feel like is was talking "with" me vs. "at" or even "to" me.

When you approach conflict with integrity and authenticity, you feel empowered and emboldened in the best possible way.

Conflict avoidance is one of the most destructive forces in your professional and personal life and most people avoid it not because they lack the will, but because they lack the way.

This book will give you that way. Thank you Mark.

Mark Adams produced a fantastic book on "conflict resolution" by taking concepts from many different disciplines and weaving them together in a very cohesive fashion. I was amazed at how well he synthesized so much information into this one book. Mr. Adams dissected conflict into its basic elements and causes. He provides his readers with the tools to properly address conflict and to keep it from escalating. He points out the damage caused by our fear of conflict and clearly describes the value it provides, if handled appropriately. The material in this book could benefit anyone, not just those of us involved in "conflict resolution." This book resonated with me in so many ways.

This is a very useful book for practicing mediators. The tone and orientation to personal integrity and learning are important for mediators and consistently developed throughout the book. Very few conflict books are as emotionally informed, and fewer still offer real practical solutions to the subtle places where we get stuck, and this book does that. Mediation requires both courage and humility and this book will help mediators ground themselves and learn to become more skillful at both.

Whether an experienced mediator or just working within an organization, Courageous Conflict is a excellent read. I highly recommend the easy to navigate style that takes you from attitudes of conflicts; to how our thinking, perceptions and assumptions make us dig in our heels; through how we can find the strength, integrity and courage to change the patterns of how to view conflict more constructively. Throughout, the concepts are introduced straight forwardly with a coaching approach that includes thoughtful questions. Moreover, the all important emotional side of conflict is dealt with practically with straight forward strategies. I highly recommend this book as an addition to mediators', organizational development practitioners, and conflict coaches' bookshelves. Deborah S. Laufer, Director, Federal ADR Network

Mark Adams captures so much about the wide world of conflict in his generous book and as with its subtitle does so with integrity and authenticity. He also does so with much caring and compassion for people in conflict and those who work with them. Mark's ability to impart ideas and tools in practical and helpful ways is very useful not only to leaders in every capacity. Conflict management coaches, mediators, HR professsionals, lawyers and others will all benefit from his approach to the subject and the expansive information he shares.
