Now Available in Kindle Edition: Keith Grossman's "What is a Peace Chest?"
Fort Myers, FL – May 27, 2014 – Attorney, mediator, facilitator and trainer Keith Grossman, founder and managing partner of Grossman Law & Conflict Management, has recently published an e-book titled “What is a Peace Chest?” which is available for the Amazon Kindle reader.
This first in the “Building Your Peace Chest” workbook series will help readers understand and develop skills to effectively prevent conflict and de-escalate existing conflict. They will learn to engage conflict with purpose and goals rather than reacting, to apply mediation skills to achieve cooperation and to build collaborative relationships.
Grossman is also an engaging speaker who accepts bookings locally, statewide and nationally to talk to corporations, non-profit organizations and professional associations on topics such as conflict management in the workplace.
Many people prepare for conflict by saving up money and resources to do battle. Grossman positions a “Peace Chest” as an alternative to a “War Chest,” to help parties successfully navigate conflict and achieve a productive result.
“Developing a peace chest is a decision to focus on teamwork, problem solving, and interest-based negotiation rather than threats or power,” Grossman explained. “A strong peace chest promotes harmony, encourages self-empowerment and provides for healing.”
The first workbook, “What Is A Peace Chest?” describes the underlying reasons for conflict and explains the value of resolving conflict collaboratively even if you feel justified to handle it more combatively.
Each workbook in the Building Your Peace Chest series will walk readers through the components that will make them more skillful and comfortable in resolving conflict in their lives.
In addition to conflict management training, Grossman and his associate attorneys litigate divorce and family law cases. The team aims first to apply strategies to help manage conflict cooperatively and maintain relationships. After many years of litigation, Grossman observed that an adversarial model has increasingly generated higher conflict and unnecessary expense. His signature “How to Build Your Peace Chest” lectures grew out of a conviction that all parties are better served by committing to solutions. Grossman believes the emphasis should be on saving up one’s riches to prepare to make peace instead of war.
