Redeeming Conflict 12 Habits For Christian Leaders
Ave Maria Press
It seems counterintuitive: conflict can be a blessing. But Catholic theologian and conflict mediator Ann M. Garrido identifies conflict as a fruitful exchange that arises from living and working together in the diverse world God created. Garrido, author of the bestselling Redeeming Administration, offers twelve practical habits for responding to conflict. In Redeeming Conflict, Ann Garrido explains that conversion comes through conversation, that there is a difference between "the truth" and "my truth," and that you should be curious and practice "Pentecost listening"–or empathetic listening–even if you think something is way off base. Garrido will help Christian leaders discover how to speak directly with colleagues about tensions and about how to get to know themselves well enough to keep from becoming defensive in the face of negative feedback.
