About Stewart Levine...
Stewart improves productivity
while saving the enormous cost of conflict using “Agreements for Results” and
“Resolutionary” conversational models. As a lawyer he realized fighting is ineffective in resolving problems.
he learned why collaborations fail: people do not create clarity about what
they want to accomplish, and how they will get there. He has worked across the
organizational spectrum – Fortune 500, small, government and non-profit. His
“Cycle of Resolution” is included in the “Change Handbook, 2d Edition.” His
book "Getting to Resolution: Turning Conflict into Collaboration”
(Berrett-Koehler 1998, 2009) was an Executive Book Club Selection; Featured by
Executive Book Summaries; named one of the 30 Best Business Books of1998; and
called “a marvelous book” by Dr. Stephen Covey. It has been translated into
Russian, Hebrew and Portuguese. “The Book of Agreement” (Berrett-Koehler 2003)
