In her first book, Everything Is Workable: A Zen Approach to Conflict Resolution, Diane distills years of experience as a mediator and a meditator into an empowering skill set for engaging and resolving conflict with wisdom and compassion.
Diane, who is a long-time practitioner of meditation, and a Zen priest says, “In spite of practicing meditation, mindfulness, or other spiritual disciplines, most people regularly experience conflict in their lives - and have to deal with it.”
She suggests that for real success in both professional and personal life, everyone needs to develop conflict resolution skills and cultivate social intelligence through practice and awareness.
