This is not a light read. It is powerful. Like The Artist's Way it has the power to change you and your point of view. It is well researched and has an extensive Bibiography. And all for a very reasonable list price!
Beyond a bargain. A Gift.
Earth, water, fire and air are things that we see and use every day and they seem to have nothing to do with conflict. The beauty of the Way of Conflict is the unusual wisdom that the author brings in from these usual objects. In the first part of this book, the reader is guided through personality types that represent the above mentioned four elements. Ready-to-use tools are presented to identify the personllity types of the individuals. Postive and negative features inherent with each elemental personality are clearly described. The end of the first part of the book elaborates how these earth,water,fire and air traits could go beyond individuals to characterize groups or teams and their dynamics in conflcit.
The most interesting and enlightening thing I found in the book was the conflict process or the Conflict Mandala. This great summarization of wisdom to which the author referes to frequently is very useful not only to understanding the teaching but also to remebr and recall. After reading the Way of Conlict, when I am faced with a conflict in real life, I step back and think "Where am I standing now in the Conflict Mandala?".Read more ›
