Description

Global conflict is one of the top challenges the world faces today. Our survival as the human race demands that we pay attention to our own role in conflict. Resolving conflict on a global scale requires change at the level of individuals.

Lawyer and Mediator Meysa Maleki introduces the everyday person to the elements of conflict, the sub-conversations and the skills that are required to resolve conflict effectively. However, her solution to addressing human conflict goes beyond just the latest conflict resolution theory, negotiation techniques, and the interpersonal skills of a mediator. She draws on the strengths of human beings, their capacity for compassion and their immense potential to change their subconscious programming through awareness.

This book weaves together research ranging from human genetics, evolution, communications theory, neuroscience, world history, psychology, and sociology to reframe our understanding of conflict. It provides the everyday person as well as professionals who devote their careers to working with conflict situations with an integrated approach to conflict resolution, one that draws from the east and the west.

Meysa Maleki provides a new paradigm, one that is based on awareness, compassion, and a negotiator’s toolbox.

About the Author
Meysa Maleki practices as a family law lawyer and mediator at Maleki Barristers, in Toronto, Canada. Her strong interest in the complexities of interpersonal relationships and human dynamics led to a career of fighting for justice in the area of family law. But, she discovered that litigation perpetuates the conflict and is not the right solution in every case. This led Meysa to pursue formal training in mediation, including Harvard Law School's Negotiation and Leadership Program. She has completed a family mediation internship at the Toronto Superior Court of Justice, and has been awarded the designation of accredited family mediator (Acc.FM) by the Ontario Association for Family Mediation. Her interest in what makes people tick prompted Meysa to be certified to administer and interpret the EQ-I (Emotional Quotient Inventory) 2.0 and EQ-I 360 2.0, tools that measure a set of competencies critical for influence, leadership, and success. In the political arena, Meysa served as Senior Policy Advisor to Ontario's Health Minister, the Honourable Deb Matthews, and engaged with multilateral interests in a variety of high profile files.

Editorial Review

"Meysa Maleki draws from a deep intellectual understanding of human nature with genuine compassion and years of experience. She informs us how to approach and understand negotiation and conflict resolution, whether in our professional or personal life. This should be required reading for anyone serious about assisting others to navigate the troubled waters of conflict and achieve resolution."

- The Honourable Deb Matthews, former Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and Deputy Premier of the Province of Ontario

"This book is a compelling contribution to understanding and navigating modern dispute resolution processes. I strongly recommend it to anyone embarking on that journey."

- Harold Niman, Family lawyer, Fellow of American Academy of Trial Lawyers, and co-author of Evidence in Family Law

"Meysa Maleki provides a unique contribution to conflict resolution literature and beyond, sharing insightful analysis about the nature of conflict and its effect on our personal lives. She does not offer a quick fix strategy but urges us through mindfulness, understanding, and self-examination to change our relationship with conflict and with each other. I expect to consult this book repeatedly, much as one would use a compass to ensure that we remain on the right direction."

- Alfred A. Mamo, Certified Family Law Specialist, Mediator and Arbitrator

"A captivating read. Canada’s rising star of family law takes the time to share an innovative and compassionate approach to conflict resolution."

- Lorne London, Owner of Post City Magazines
