    3/8/2012 · Mediation
    Let's consider what makes this time slightly different than previous times of unrest. The essential facts are that most Americans are suffering through the deepest economic depression since the 1930s. We barely avoided a complete economic collapse and may still see an economic collapse if the euro fails.

    11/4/2011 · Mediation
    I am reading The Truth About Camp David: The Untold Story about the Collapse of the Middle East Peace Process by Clayton Swisher. This is a modern history of the events in the Clinton administration from 1999 to 2000 concerning US attempts to mediate peace between Israel and Syria and Israel and the Palestinians.

    We have all experienced levels of anger and levels of fear in mediation, and we have witnessed our clients in fear and in anger.

    Douglas E. Noll, Esq
    In this in-depth analysis, professional mediator Douglas E. Noll goes behind the headlines to understand why crucial negotiations fail. He argues that diplomats often enter negotiations with flawed assumptions about human behavior, sovereignty, and power. Essentially, the international community is using a model of European diplomacy dating back to the 18th century to solve the complex problems of the 21st century. Through numerous examples, the author shows that the key failure in current diplomatic efforts is the entrenched belief that nations, through their representatives, will act rationally to further their individual political, economic, and strategic interests.

    Sex, politics and religion at the office are potent forces for attaining a sustainable competitive advantage in the post-modern workplace. Whether you are in charge of a Fortune 500 company, a nonprofit, an entrepreneurial enterprise, or just a few workers, if you are sweeping sexuality, political power, and values under the rug, you're leaving three powerful tools in the shed. Repression is not an option. In contrast, the rewards for developing a powerful, healthy workplace are profitable, reliable, and limitless. This unconventional approach, developed by authors John F. Boogaert and Douglas E. Noll, shows you how to unleash the incredible power of sex, politics and religion in your office.
    Douglas E. Noll, Esq
    In this book, Noll weaves many strands of academic thinking about human conflict into an integrated view of why people fight, how they fight, what they fight over—and how they can instead make peace, whether in the courtroom or beyond.
