Harnessing the Power of Resistance: A Guide
by Jared Scherz, Ph.D.
"Harnessing the Power of Resistance"
is intended for those people who work in organizational
settings of any size or deal with systems (teams, groups),
educators in particular. Others who
would benefit from this book include anybody who feels like
their social interactions are not entirely satisfying.
Examples of 'contact styles' are outlined
so that people can understand the way in which they deal
with conflict. Examples are given of various interpersonal
challenges, providing more adaptive alternates for people
to experiment with. View
This book describes how educators typically
deal with resistance by overpowering it, avoiding
it, or circumventing it.
But author Jared Scherz goes further and suggests
productive ways of harnessing its potential.
