Reaching Common Ground
Released: October 2020
Genre: Business, How-to and Self-Help
Reaching Common Ground will teach you how to turn confrontation into dialogue, dialogue into understanding, and understanding into the effective resolution of conflicts. These are critical skills in today’s world. We have become more adversarial and confrontational, with consequences not only in our ability to solve problems, but also in our personal relationships. Today’s most contentious issues are framed as us-versus-them identity-based conflicts: men against women, blacks against whites, citizens against immigrants, and liberals against conservatives. Labeling and name-calling are used to stifle dissenting opinions. Reaching Common Ground will teach you how to communicate effectively with people of different cultures and backgrounds and provide effective methods for resolving conflicts despite differences in core values, gender, race, religion, culture, national origin, age, sexual orientation, economic status, and power imbalances.
