Instant Conflict Resolution by The Instant-Series Team starts with a question: “Why should you avoid conflicts?” The answer is: any unresolved conflict can harm one's reputation, lead to physical damage, result in pecuniary loss, in addition to causing intangible effects. Key areas of conflict prevention are then discussed, followed by mediation tactics. Methods of resolving a conflict, which take prime importance if all the earlier paths avoiding a face-off lead to failure, are discussed in detail. ‘For resolving conflicts, you have to find the right words, and the right act too, and you’ll mostly do it yourself; therefore, make it a habit to take responsibility for your action to solve your own problems as soon as they creep up.’

Instant Conflict Resolution by The Instant-Series Team is more of a practical guide to the problem of conflict resolution. The book is filled with helpful lists, forms, and other useful kits for actual use. At every step, descriptions of the relevant part of the healing procedure in detail make arbitrators’ roles and work very easy. Not only is this book a great help in running one's setup in the face of potential conflicts, it makes it easy to adjudicate when necessary. By focusing on the dictum ‘You are the best problem solver,’ it takes the involvement of owners, managers, as well as working people to greater heights of responsibility. Practice exercises covering the areas of instruction greatly reduce the learning effort. This short guide is a good ready reference for actual situations of finding and settling conflicts.

“Instant Conflict Resolution” is a short, reader-friendly guide for how to resolve conflicts on-the-fly. While there are certainly plenty of titles about conflict resolution on the market today, this one differs in its emphasis on seeking resolution as efficiently as possible. “Instant Conflict Resolution” offers a variety of practical tools for readers, for resolving their own personal or professional conflicts, as well as for mediating others’ conflicts.

Topics covered in this guide include how to dissipate conflict early through “damage control,” how to effectively avoid tense situations, and how to determine the best course of action when confrontation is inevitable. Each chapter is filled with practical examples of how each strategy might play out in real life, as well as lots of hands-on exercises allowing readers to examine their own thinking.

I won’t say I walked away agreeing with every point the author presented; however, it was very productive to consider some fresh approaches. The points that I personally found the most helpful included the emphasis on remaining calm when dealing with a difficult individual, and the advice for envisioning a potential situation all the way through before determining a course of action.

I would recommend this book to any reader interested in a quick, practical guide to help you reexamine your understanding of effective conflict resolution, while adding a few fresh tools and ideas to your belt.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book was. It was probably due to having a very low expectation, but it turned out better than I anticipated

Instant Conflict Resolution helped me understand all the different takes on conflicts and how they're not worth it. It gave a clear view on how to approach them from different angles. The book made me realize that not every situation should turn into a conflict and when to avoid them, and how to handle them which was what interested me the most. It laid some great neat techniques to avoid and handle them such as victimization resolution and resolution visualization

One interesting unique thing about this book was that it tackled conflict management from both sides, as being in the conflict yourself or acting as a mediator that I thought was a nice touch on.

The big plus to Instant Conflict Resolution would be how it really is clear, direct, and to the point and useful at the same time. It's very easy to read and not boring but with real life examples and exercises after the techniques are presented. This book nails when it comes to reading, learning, and applying what you learn.

The information good for day to day use but also as I run a business and conflicts happen in that as well, but it's not just for business as it goes over and can be apply for at home as well. This book can help anybody.
