About the book:

If you dread conflict, you’re not alone. Research suggests that interpersonal conflict is the biggest daily stressor we face, and that most of us go through life avoiding potential conflicts at work and at home, or giving in when we feel pressured. In Resolve, Hal Movius shows you how you can handle life’s negotiations more effectively and with less stress by developing three distinct types of confidence: mastery, awareness, and poise.

Drawing on decades of research in negotiation and psychology, along with more recent advances in social neuroscience, this book delivers science-backed insights and effective tools to boost your confidence in all three critical areas, so you can be more effective in resolving conflicts—from spontaneous flare-ups at home to planned business negotiations.
