Solving Tough Problems: An Open Way of Talking, Listening, and Creating New Realities ebook


Adam Kahane, Peter M. Senge free


From Publishers Weekly

The former "head of Social, Political, Economic and Technological Scenarios" for Royal Dutch/Shell’s London office, Kahane is now an international mediation consultant. He offers problem-solving guidance by way of narrative biography, describing his extensive experience in defining and tackling tough problems, those that "usually don’t get solved peacefully. They either don’t get solved at all—they get stuck—or they get solved by force." The details of his interventions may be fresher than the advice they can be boiled down to: the most important problem-solving components, Kahane says, are talking and listening openly, reflectively and empathetically. Yet when Kahane describes the 1996 and 1997 meetings he helped convene in Colombia between the government and armed factions on the left and the right, the fragility of his concepts and the importance of committing to them in good faith become clear. A workshop he describes at the University of the North in South Africa, "a rural, apartheid-era institution with a history of conflict between radical black students and conservative white faculty," makes for another of many compelling object lessons. Companies and individuals who don’t face potentially violent disagreement or carry bitter histories of violence will still find thought-provoking (occasionally verging on spiritual) discourse on handling difficult situations gracefully, productively and calmly.

Review

"Kahane has written a brave and powerful book. He argues convincingly that winning solutions are found by listening, not by telling. Leadership is important, but the best leaders are good listeners. I have worked with him and he is right. Simply put: it works!" - Len Lindegren, former Global Strategy Leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers "There are no magical solutions here. This is not another "how-to" book. Instead, Kahane provides us with the very personal story of how he grew from a young expert convinced of the need to provide the "correct" answers, to an effective facilitator of positive change - by learning how to create environments that enable new ideas and creative solutions to emerge. This book explores the connection between individual learning and institutional change, and how leaders can move beyond politeness and formal statements, beyond routine debate and the defense of their positions, towards deeper and more generative dialogue. It should be read by anyone who is concerned with the quality of decision-making in today's democracies." - Elena Martinez, Assistant Secretary General, United Nations"

Highly Recommended !

  

This is a very unusual business strategy book on an esoteric topic: solving complex problems with scenario planning and analysis. Author Adam Kahane also discusses how change occurs in complicated social systems. Kahane, a conflict resolution consultant, shares a pivotal skill he learned at his former jobs with Royal Dutch/Shell and Pacific Gas & Electric. He learned how to address tangled problems with scenario analysis. He tried and, as his case histories testify, did not often succeed - to solve daunting problems in intractably troubled places, such as Paraguay, Colombia, South Africa and the Middle East. He admits his approach does not always work, though he has rare successes and frequent insights. Some of his strategy's separate steps, such as scenario planning and story telling, seem to function well on their own, but he has a tendency to de-link theory and practice. We recommend this unusual, instructive book to conflict managers, strategic planning executives and citizens who want to learn why profound national change must start at the individual level.

Humility and learning

  

I found this book very valuable and refreshingly simple and clear. To write simply is a quality which I personally hold in great esteem, and simplicity tends to lead to greater profundity. I was very moved which goes beyond agreeing on ideas - and is about deeply agreeing on purpose.
I very much enjoyed having the opportunity of reading this gem of a book. One mark of its enduring value, is that it has really made me think and question more and more about what works and why.

A must read

  

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Adam is an amazing storyteller, inviting the reader into his personal and very human journey; seeking to address a range of complex and difficult conflicts. Adam's profound learning about fostering deep transformation in groups and the power of diversity, is illuminated border conversations in Columbia, Guatamala, Argentina etc.

The book gives an insiders view on the Mont Fleur Scenario planning process, which brought together Apartheid leaders and leaders of the ANC and other key players in the struggle in the same room. The thinking they did together and the scenarios they developed, influenced the peaceful transition out of apartheid in South Africa.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in systemic change and the power of conversation. I was left with the profound and simple realization that it starts with me, and my ability to be truly present to others. It also strengthened my faith in our collective ability as human beings to find new ways of being together as we face tremendous complexity in all of our communities.
