If you feel like your organization is mired in a rut, you definitely need THE GOOD FIGHT.”

Is Your Team Worth Fighting For?

In the modern workplace, conflict has become a “dirty word.” After all, conflict is antithetical to teamwork, employee engagement, and a positive company culture. Or, is it?

The truth is that our teams and organizations require conflict to get things done. But, as humans, we avoid conflict and build up conflict debt by deferring and dodging the difficult decisions. Our organizations are paying the price – becoming less productive, less innovative and less competitive. Individuals are paying too – suffering from overwhelming workloads, endless drama, and sleepless nights.

In The Good Fight, Liane Davey shows you how to create the productive conflict your organization needs to get along and get stuff done. Drawing on her 20-year career as an advisor to the C-Suite, Davey shares real-world examples and practical tools you and your team can use to handle even the most contentious conflicts as allies – instead of adversaries. Filled with strategies you’ll use again and again, The Good Fight is an essential field-guide for leaders at all levels.

For most leaders and teams, conflict is treated as something to avoid at all cost — instead of a path toward greater understanding, engagement and success. Through practical examples, Davey gives us the right words so we might approach conflict as an ally rather than an adversary. I highly recommend The Good Fight for anyone leading a team. As many of us would agree, normalizing healthy conflict in the workplace is something that is long overdue
