Got to meet Marquardt - interesting guy. His theory is to ask questions, and use active listening, to resolve conflicts on a team. The technique he recommends only allows you to ask questions - you can only make statements in response to someone else's question. It changes the dynamics of the team and helps to quickly get to the root cause of any problem.
