"From Conflict to Collaboration: A School Leader's Guide to Unleashing Conflict's Problem-Solving Power" is a powerful resource for education leaders, by education leaders.   As increasing political and ideological polarization washes over education practice and policy, conflict is increasing. Feirsen and Weitzman make a convincing case that Design Thinking is one tool that can manage conflict in constructive ways that expands the problem solving capabilities of an educational organization." - Robert J. Monson, Ph.D., Adjunct Associate Professor, Education Leadership Program, Teachers College, Columbia University

"Outstanding!  Must-read for new principals!  Provides real-life scenarios with concrete, solutions-based strategies centering on productive, healthy conflict resolution methods every administrator needs to support kids, teachers, and communities!   Every principal should have a copy in their office!" - Stephanie Hagerty, Kentucky Principal

"Robert and Seth have put together a book that helps to address how school principals and other school administrators can work through conflict, both our internal conflicts and the conflicts that happen in schools.  Reframing conflict with the mindset that conflict leads to collaboration and conversation is not only a positive twist on conflict but a healthy twist on conflict, too.  I found myself applying the ideas in "From Conflict to Collaboration" while I was reading.  I even adjusted a staff meeting based upon these ideas.  "From Conflict to Collaboration" is a great book to help any school administrator who is working through conflict, and the who is everyone." - Jay Posick, Wisconsin Principal

"The work of the principal in a public school has never been more difficult. On so many levels this is exactly the book that building level educational leaders need right now. It is our tendency to approach conflict as something to overcome, and things will become better once this is accomplished. Drs. Feirsen and Weitzman help leaders cultivate a mindset that views conflicts as opportunities rather than roadblocks and offers strategies that leaders can use to realize the school’s vision and improve the culture in the building." - Donald Gately, New York State Principal of the Year 2016
