Douglas Noll, author of the 2011 International Peace and Justice award winning book "Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts," expands his international outreach to Malaysia for the purpose of teaching workforce conflict mediation to Southeast Asian business executives and leaders.
“A desire for International executives to learn peacemaking is another important step towards teaching 21st century strategies and solutions to influencers. While it is an exciting time to be on the cutting edge where brain science and conflict resolution meet, teaching strategies to groups, businesses and educators worldwide is key. We must get the word outside of the classroom and into the marketplace where change can occur,” Noll explains, adding that “time is of the essence to move from 18th century strategies that are cost prohibitive and don’t create long term solutions, towards modernized sustainable conflict resolutions in all areas of life; work, politics, government, and civil dissent.”
Doug Noll began his journey towards conflict resolution as a lawyer over twenty years ago. Changing focus from trial lawyer to peacemaker has offered numerous opportunities to teach peacemaking to business leaders, executives, voters, prison inmates and diplomats. Noll is a founding board member of Mediators Without Borders, the President of the California Dispute Resolution Council and co-founded Prison of Peace (a pro bono project teaching peacemaking and mediation skills to female inmates in a California State prison) with colleague and professional mediator Laurel Kaufer.
“I am finding that mediating conflict with sustainable solutions leading towards peace is gaining worldwide momentum. Mediators apply scientific findings about brain function and processes towards teaching successful conflict resolution skills. It is satisfying to know that the desire for peace in the workforce and between nations is a universal concern,” Noll says.
