Margaret Keyser Consulting - Transforming conflict into peaceful and productive relationships







Important Resources in Conflict Transformation


Long Walk to Freedom
A must read for all those interested in leadership that transforms.  

Former President Nelson Mandela describes in intimate details his life as a young boy growing up in his home town, his student years, activism, his philosophy on justice, freedom and reconciliation. Striking is his description of the importance of consensus in decision making, and how he learned from those before him. 

This book is a reminder of the basic principles of great leadership in action...
 
Relationships are at the heart of conflict transformation, says John Paul Lederach in:
"The abridged version of his Little Book of Conflict Transformation"
 
 
 
 
 
 

Building Peace: 
Sustainable Reconciliation in Divided Societies by John Paul Lederach is a favorite reading   in our library.
