Conflict Creates Energy!

Conflict Without CasualtiesConflict Without Casualties by Nate Regier

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Conflict is always difficult, but it leads to growth and change, which is good. No one likes pain, but pain wakes you up and tells you when to react. This book is a guide for leaders on how to navigate conflict so it is not an energy drain but an energy source. Some level of organizational conflict is actually desirable — it’s not always dysfunctional. When conflict exists, it generally indicates commitment to organizational goals, because the players are trying to come up with the best solution. Dr. Regier gives us three critical steps to follow for creating positive energy with conflict:

  1. Be open and transparent about how you are feeling and what you want.
  2. Show a non-judgmental curiosity to explore options and look for creative solutions.
  3. Gain clarity about your boundaries and principles. This is a must read for leaders that want true open dialogue and dissent to find the best solutions for our global challenges.
