As a species, we are well-practised at falling out with each other. We may even have a gene for it. When it comes to finding resolutions, things .. Read more don’t come so naturally. As much as 90% of all interpersonal conflicts never reach agreement. Why is this problem so persistent? It seems that disagreement often escalates when we try to sort it out. If only compromise were not such a dirty word. There are many in business and politics who deride those prepared to reach for the middle ground as weak - lacking in vision, goals and ambitions. Meanwhile those who take a tough and uncompromising position are celebrated. But only when they win.This conversation "I Don’t Agree – the Art of Conflict Resolution” with Michael Brown will provide us with a thinking framework, which will help us to get on with solving problems, while recognising our differences. It will help us to find a way to firmly say that ‘I don’t agree’ and yet ultimately arrive at a genuine consensus. Michael elaborates on a ten step structured approach to condition us for building agreements and consensus despite sharp differences - be it in the boardroom or during a tough business negotiation. He published his book - I Don’t Agree in the year 2020. His interest in the psychology of conflict and compromise arose after spectacularly falling out with his fellow shareholders in a business he led for a decade. The lessons he learned from that experience positively informed his next venture and gave rise to his book.
