Posted By on May 13th

You have heard about saving your money to prepare for war. How about saving your money, and improving your skills and resources to prepare for peace?

Do you have a peace chest to handle conflict? Developing a peace chest is a decision to focus on teamwork, problem solving, and interest based negotiation rather than threats or power. A strong peace chest promotes harmony, encourages self-empowerment, and provides for healing.

Peacemaking is not easy, it requires a shift in thinking, and it can’t be done alone. You build your peace chest by doing the following things:

  • Rely upon and develop a community of professional assistance
  • Develop your owns skills in the area of listening, negotiation, creative thinking, brainstorming, tolerance, teamwork, and health and exercise.

You develop your skills by:

  • Attending conflict management programs
  • Reading books
  • Watching videos
  • Reading blogs, articles, and newsletters
