When people come together whether for business, employment, religious, or personal reasons we often discover that we have opposing interests, differing expectations, and diverse communication styles.

All of these factors often lead to conflict. Not surprisingly, the costs of unmanaged conflict jeopardize business, family, personal and professional success.
