About Stewart Levine...

Stewart improves productivity while saving the enormous cost of conflict using “Agreements for Results” and “Resolutionary” conversational models. As a lawyer he realized fighting is  ineffective in resolving problems.

At AT&T he learned why collaborations fail: people do not create clarity about what they want to accomplish, and how they will get there. He has worked across the organizational spectrum – Fortune 500, small, government and non-profit. His “Cycle of Resolution” is included in the “Change Handbook, 2d Edition.” His book "Getting to Resolution: Turning Conflict into Collaboration” (Berrett-Koehler 1998, 2009) was an Executive Book Club Selection; Featured by Executive Book Summaries; named one of the 30 Best Business Books of1998; and called “a marvelous book” by Dr. Stephen Covey. It has been translated into Russian, Hebrew and Portuguese. “The Book of Agreement” (Berrett-Koehler 2003) has been endorsed by many thought leaders, called “more practical” than the classic “Getting to Yes” and named one of the best books of 2003 by CEO Refresher (www.Refresher.com). Along with Davd Coleman he wrote “Collaborate 2.0” that was released in February 2008.

He teaches communication, relationship management and conflict management skills for The American Management Association, the   University of California Berkeley Law School and Dominican University Graduate Business School. www.ResolutionWorks.com
