Listening doesn't just resolve conflict, "It creates us," said writer Brenda Ueland, "makes us unfold and expand." In her brave and wise guide, The Tell Me More Gesture author Janet Rowles carries the torch lit by Ueland and shines a light on putting the power of listening to practical use. Conflict? Bring it on! --Eric Utne, founder, Utne Reader Learn to welcome--not fear--conflict to improve and deepen your relationships Janet Rowles taps into her own experiences of both high-conflict mediator (professionally) and instigator (personally) to take an empathic approach toward helping you self-manage--and even welcome--your own conflicts. She encourages you to lean into conflict by saying three simple words: "Tell me more." Throughout every chapter, it is clear that embracing conflict rather than suppressing it is essential for fulfilling your fundamental desires for deeper and more meaningful relationships. With her unassuming style, Rowles utilizes a rich assortment of teaching methods to support your study of the Tell Me More Gesture: Real-life scenarios for deeper understanding Exercises for essential practice Journaling pages that invite personal reflection Online readers' forum to engage with Janet and other readers who are developing their own practice of the Tell Me More Gesture These complementary parts create an invaluable resource for readers of all backgrounds.

She teaches the Tell Me More Gesture in workshops and speaking engagements, and trains mediators and other professionals in dealing with high conflict. A Minnesota native, Janet holds a master's degree in human development and a certificate in alternative dispute resolution. In 2013, Janet received a Peacemaker of the Year Award from Minneapolis Public Schools.
