Gay Hendricks and Kate Ludeman wrote this book in the early 90’s and it is still my bible for business owners, executives or professional coaching clients who are seeking to end conflict and misunderstanding in their work place relationships. It builds the skills of integrity and the commitment to true wisdom in their daily work lives.
We begin our coaching relationship deepening the learning of what it means to be a “visionary with their feet on the ground”. Skip to part Three in the book and you will find the Integrity Worksheet which can be used to apply to any problem a person is having within the self or with others.
Once mastered, this integrity tool can stop all conflicts in about 10 min or better yet, stop them before they ever happen. This is a little hand book, 5×7″, you can fit it in any bag and use it on the fly. I dare you to deepen your integrity in the world of work!
