From Conflict to Co-operation is a collection of five illustrated booklets from Co-operatives UK designed to help enterprises deal with conflict when it arises and also avoid unnecessary conflict.
As Gillian Bober, former President of the East of England Co-operative Society, states in the Foreword:
"In order to achieve their goals and be sustainable, community enterprises need to know how to work as a team - communicating effectively, making good decisions, dealing with the inevitable conflicts and coping with growth and change. From Conflict to Co-operation – a series of handy illustrated guides – is invaluable. It includes useful hints and tips as well as signposting to further resources."
The author Kate Whittle has been working with co-operatives both in the UK and overseas for over 25 years. She has worked as a researcher, trainer, mentor and development worker for a wide range of co-operatives and social enterprises.
