Thoughts for the 2nd Half

One of my colleagues is a ‘communication’ consultant. I love talking with her about conflict resolution because communication is so fundamental to resolving our differences, right?

The last time that she and I had the chance to visit, she told me about the National Communication Association’s…

Show or Tell

I’ve come across a common theme when dealing with clients and their anger. And, it’s something we all should have learned as two year-olds.

I’ve learned that an outstanding majority of use “show” our anger instead of “telling” our anger. And, to be truthful, the distinction between the two often causes a lot of problems that end up showing up in my therapy room.…untitled (35)

Fighting ’til there’s nothing left

Now this is an amazing statistic. According to some research done 20 years ago (by the Williams Group), 70% of families will lose some of their inherited wealth to (mostly) estate battles.

In fact, sometimes, more money is funneled to the lawyers than is even there to inherit in the first place!

Double Binds-Double Trouble

I’ve been meaning to write a blog about “double binds” for a while now, and, recently had an experience that inspired me to do it-finally!What’s a double-bind, you ask? It’s a situation in which conflict is arising because at least one person involved in the conflict feels “trapped.” If he chooses “A,” something bad will happen. If he chooses “B,” something bad will happen. Does that sound familiar to you? It should…

Peace at Work

As some of you know, I teach Organizational Collaboration and Conflict Resolution through the Creighton program at The Werner Institute. I have come to love the 7 week journey I take three times a year, with a group of engaged students all seeking to make a positive difference in the world.

Pinhole Thinking

“Pinhole Thinking” … this is one of my favorite new phrases.

What do you see when you look through a pinhole – not much. That’s exactly my point.

We can’t solve problem by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created it.” Thank-you Albert Einstein for those words of wisdom.

And that’s exactly what happens when people use “pinhole thinking” to try to figure something out.

Rebooting Mediation by Detaching from the Illusions of Neutrality, Just Outcomes and Balanced Power

Neutrality is physically impossible to attain as a personal attribute for a mediator.

The same applies to the concepts of ‘just outcomes’ and ‘balanced power’. They are all theoretical constructs which do not exist outside of theory.

There is nothing theorists can point to that would indicate to a mediator when these states have been physically achieved. They are subjective concepts subject to infinite…
