Dr. Donna Hicks has 20 years of experience as a facilitator during international conflicts. One of the main things she learned during her time helping people who really don’t like each other to find common ground, is to focus on dignity.Here is a TedX talk she did on the topic:
She is going to be doing a live Q&A conversation with the folks at the International Humanistic Management Association (which I am associated with).

Her book – Leading with Dignity: How to Create a Culture That Brings Out the Best in People is coming out in August and is available for pre-sale https://amzn.to/2Ef7bwf
“Most people know very little about dignity, the author has found, and when leaders fail to respect the dignity of others, conflict and distrust ensue. She highlights three components of leading with dignity: what one must know in order to honor dignity and avoid violating it; what one must do to lead with dignity; and how one can create a culture of dignity in any organization, whether corporate, religious, governmental, healthcare, or beyond. Brimming with key research findings, real-life case studies, and workable recommendations, this book fills an important gap in our understanding of how best to be together in a conflict-ridden world.”
