“The Power of Conflict” provides tips to argue smarter, uphold your values, keep the conversation real, and arm readers with the skills and confidence to fight for their principles. Taffer offers selective and strategic ways to have difficult conversations that, when doing so, will help readers stay aware of their objectives rather than escalating tension unnecessarily. With so much conflict and division in the world today, this book offers a guide on how people can turn conflict into a transformational tool. If navigated strategically, conflict has the power to change minds, engage others, and create the energy necessary to move forward.

Says Taffer about his forthcoming book, “I have spent the last four decades of my career resolving conflict using the same methods I lay out in this book. The tools I present have inspired people, saved marriages and created successful businesses around the world. The time has come to give voice to our convictions with class and grace, whether you are a mother, bar owner, spouse, entrepreneur, or manager. This approach is for everyone who wants to speak with confidence towards a goal of finding solutions, especially when participating in difficult conversations.”

Lisa Sharkey, HarperCollins Publisher’s Senior Vice President and Director of Creative Development, adds, “In a world and a country filled with conflict, at a time when resolution is paramount, Jon Taffer’s The Power of Conflict teaches you how to embrace debate, engage realistically, and effectively argue, whether you are at home, at work, or out with friends. This book is an instrumental toolkit for building your confidence, and learning how to stand up for what you believe in, with guaranteed positive outcomes.”
