Riassunto: Founder and Author, Kathy Stroh, is pleased to announce the availability of her first book Growing Wings . It is based upon Kathy s 25 years experience as a practioner in the field of conflict. Growing Wings provides a practical meat and potatoes approach for individuals and organization to practice and exercise the skills to effectively address issues of conflict. The book is divided into three parts using the butterfly as a metaphor. Kathy s overall belief is that conflict is neither positive or negative, it just is and it s how we react to it that demonstrates one s ability to be effective. The catepillar stage investigates the theoretical components of conflict. The purpose of this segment is to educate the reader in the appreciation of conflict s role in our lives. The chrysalis stage encourages the reader to apply their understanding of conflict to their own lives. This integration of information is the most powerful part of true conflict management. We cannot change others, but when we change ourselves, anything is possible . Finally, the butterfly stage begins when new behaviors are introduced that provide you with the alternative choices around conflict. This is when we can use the knowledge and skills learned in the first two stages to exercise real control with conflcit on a daily basis. Conflict is part of the human experience that is a constant in our lives. Through that understanding we can embrace relationships as the most important item in our daily lives. Whether we are dealing with a negotiation or mediation, a boss or employee, a friend or relative . . . the heart of the matter still lies at the level of the relationship. The essence of good conflict management is to resolve the problem without harming the relationship.
L'autore: In Kathy s words: Over the past 25 years I have presented over 1,500 workshops under the vast topic of conflict and I am an expert in the field. Although the title changed with the type of clientele I am working with the focus has included, but not limited to, theory around conflict; anger management; argumentative positions; agendas - both hidden and verbalized; belief systems; brainstorming and evaluating solutions to problems; conflict resulting from burnout of position; change and transition as it relates to conflict; four toxic components of conflict: criticism, defensiveness, withdrawal, and contempt; negotiation; mediation; Enneagram and conflict; violence prevention and education, communication skills; healthy work environments; the need for conflict in systems; understanding power; myths of conflict; and objectivity. The University of Colorado allowed me to write a M.A. in this area in 1989 before there was such a thing as a M.A. in conflict. I am both theorist and practitioner: that means that I understand the nature, need and framework of conflict as well as a background of applying this knowledge to a wide constituency of audiences. My expertise in conflict management is not simply a matter of an academic background or the presentation of workshops, I have met the Bear meaning that I have worked with individuals who have absolutely no patience for lightweights in any field, AND I worked well with them; this included individuals in prisons (state and federal), county jails, court-appointed anger management, and addiction treatment facilities. I wrote Growing Wings to explain, in common terms, the need and purpose for conflict in the human experience.
