Книга полезная. Но дочитал я ее с трудом, т. к. приходится продираться через просто неимоверное количество воды! Закончив ее, я понял, как себя чувствовали золотодобытчики во времена золотой лихорадки: перебираешь тонны пустой породы, чтобы найти буквально крупицы действительно полезных мыслей и рекомендаций.

A high-quality and important book. All books from HBS Press tend to be, which is pretty impressive.

Some great tools and a process for conflict resolution. And, lets face it, that is what managers do all day long.

I may not be patient enough these days. If something is important I can no-longer be bothered beating all around the bushes and watering it down to appease all parties. Older and grumpier...

Did a workshop with the author in grad school and liked it so wanted to read his book. Ok, so he gave me an autographed copy and my Catholic guilt ensured I had to read it or feel forever disrespectful. Can't claim to have "enjoyed it" but it did take me back to grad school leadership courses - "see the whole table", "go to the balcony" - and so some ensuing gratitude for the walk down memory lane. Useful too.

was ok, a good 6 point plan of how to attack conflict. Rating depends on if you are looking for something because you are stuck in something.. I was not so this seemed normal management steps and so the rating

This came at a very key time when everything around me had been totally transformed. I picked up some nuggets on organizational change.
