The Five Keys to Having a Nice Conflict


In telling the story of John Doyle, Have a Nice Conflict gives us an everyman who faces the same conflicts–large and small–that each of us experience every day at home and in the workplace. Enter Dr. Mac, a combination of Marley’s ghost, Yoda, and Peter Drucker to guide John–and us–through critical lessons in how to recognize, categorize, and deal with these conflicts. Within the context of an easy-to-read, enjoyable story, the authors provide valuable lessons that everyone who manages or works with people should know.

A great introduction to knowing yourself and collaborating effectively with others. It’s also a good read; you won’t be able to put it down.

Michael Maccoby, Ph.D., author of Narcissistic Leaders and The Leaders We need, and What Makes us Follow

Turning conflict into opportunity is a blend of skill and art best not let to learning by trial and costly error. The authors brilliantly take you through John Doyle’s personal and professional journey. I found myself putting the insights to use the same day I read the book!
