Praise for Communication Wellness:
“Communication Wellness builds on the transformative mediation framework and offers valuable insights about the crucial role of communication in conflict. Readers will find many helpful ideas about how to create and sustain constructive communication as difficult conflicts unfold.”
“Marko Iršič brings together a wealth of material from across the disciplines of mediation, workplace psychology, organisational change, and people development, in this comprehensive, practical and positive book that should enable any organisation to take effective steps to limit the damage that conflict causes to people and productivity.”
“Conflicts are a part of our daily lives. It sounds absurd but conflicts offer great opportunities to develop our mutual relationships. For that purpose, they need to be detected and resolved at their earliest stage. Quality communication can be of great help in that. This book offers many useful tips for developing communication skills and invites us to progress in communication, even when there is no conflict yet. Communication wellness is proposed as a useful approach to development of the potential for early resolution of situations that can lead to conflict.”
“Marko Iršič moves the paradigm of transformative mediation into a broader spectrum of communication, giving it a new sense of meaning and importance to society as a whole. He presents a practical and useful tool on how to gain more knowledge and awareness about constructive interaction, crucial to overall well-being in interpersonal communication. This will improve the transformative capacity of individuals, organizations and communities on how to deal with conflicts.”
The book addresses two fields — transformative conflict theory and communications theory — I read it with interest. I have no doubt that this book will be of great value — I enjoyed it very much.
“Communication Wellness” does a great job of looking at new approaches to understanding, examining, managing, and mending productive and constructive communication. This book is unique since it views communication and conflict through the transformative framework lens. Employers and employees alike will benefit from reading this book.”
“Often conflict is only thought about after it becomes negative and destructive, but this book looks at ways to think about conflict at every phase, even before it starts. Marko Irsic explores innovative approach for building “communication wellness,” including practical strategies for addressing communication challenges proactively.”
“Conflicts occur also in professional sports. Precisely for that reason it is of utmost importance that athletes deal with their dilemmas or doubts with quality communication as soon as possible. Consequently, they have the best chances for progress and top results. Communication wellness is the right recipe for long-term success in any field. Therefore, I am very happy that we received this book that will help many, including athletes and their teams in professional sports.”
“This is paradigm shifting book! It presents conflict and quality communication as continuum and gives guidelines for moving towards constructive communication in every situation.”
“I like the term »Communication Wellness«. I have learned a lot about the nature of conflict and how to avoid and resolve them. We all need to know more about what communication wellness is and how to be better in communication. Unfortunately, we learn many less useful things in school but almost nothing about communication. I recommend this book to everyone – from experts to people that like to read and learn useful new things!”
“I work with many different companies and I see that recognising and managing conflicts appropriately presents a crucial element of the success of a company. The book Communication Wellness is an excellent tool for all who are leading others!”
“Marko Irsic takes the ‘Promise of Mediation’ to the next level, elaborating on how to address conflict before it escalates, for better interpersonal communication and improved relationships. A useful overview and concrete guide to humanizing our world.”
“Marko Iršič’s book is a wonderful description of the transformative process and an exploration into how we can address conflict in a more timely and efficient manner. Nothing could be better than to find a way to communicate in a healthy way. Finding a way to communicate well and create space for constructive conflict to lead us to positive insights is a great goal to strive for. I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like to find ways to address conflict and transform negative interactions to positive interactions!”
“Wellness is a trendy concept. Anyone is concerned with physical wellness. More and more people are concerned with mental/spiritual wellness. But very few people even imagine that communication wellness could exist.
