Making the Puzzle Pieces Fit: How to Identify Interests and Resolve Conflict is a seamlessly integrated enhanced learning package for students in management, negotiation, and conflict management. Combining both 150 pages of instruction with 2 hours of video and audio segments helps the student identify the interests of people.

Making the Puzzle Pieces Fit trains the reader to identify those interests. Details psychological barriers to identify the core concerns of others. Explains how to phrase questions to identify those core concerns. Teaches how to listen and discern what people really want, even when it is not what they say they want.

This Enhanced Learning Package designed for students and laypeople seamlessly integrates video and audio clips within the pages of the book. There is no switching back and forth between different files, so it is a seamless and enjoyable learning experience for the reader. The content, based on real-life cases of disputes between personal friends, family members, and business associates, helps train the user's eyes and ears to recognize subtle but important information often overlooked in conversations.
