Is your Heart at Peace or at War? Resolving the Heart of the Conflict

During a recent Webinar that I co-facilitated, a participant asked me a question most of us have grappled with at some point in our careers:

How do I deal with a stakeholder that is nasty & argumentative?

My mind immediately went to: “Is your heart at Peace or at War”?

This is the foundational principle of the “Anatomy of Peace”, a book which is the story of Yusuf al-Falah, an Arab, and AviRozen, a Jew, each lost his father in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The story revolves around how both these men moved past their bloody histories, their hate, pain and animosity &and how they came together to help warring parents and children resolve their differences and find peace in their relationships.
