Conflict becomes opportunity
The simple 3-Step method also offers mediators, ombuds, therapists and other conflict professionals openings for more effectively building trust, identifying real needs, and quickly reaching equitable solutions likely to last.

What They Say
…Appeals to the heart and spirit as well as the mind. David shows readers how to shift from reaction to reflection to problem solving. He gives us a clear and methodical process for getting under, through and past conflict. Free Yourself From Conflict is a practical, accessible, well-written book that provides a way to engage with others more constructively.
…Amazing on a number of levels — and it’s not just for business. David gives us the answer for what to do when a situation inexplicably spins out of control and there doesn’t seem to be any way to bring it back without surrendering everything you care about — even when your three year old throws a tantrum in front of the supermarket candy display. He also gives us new ways to understand and cope with a world that every day seems increasingly chaotic.
…So inspiring I found myself reading parts to my friends. Because I have worked in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa and the U.S. to rebuild and strengthen communities under the most challenging conditions on the planet, I know this book is critically needed around the world for peace building, trauma, and post war reconstruction. David’s simple 3-Steps enable people to turn a conflict or terrible situation inside out and get amazing results. This is a revolutionary presentation of a process that I know works.
