Welcome.  I write fiction about Conflict Management, and teach (that’s non-fiction) Conflict Management.
In my writing Portfolio, below, are the four topics I write about, and a page called, helpfully, Four Topics I Write About, with a list of posts. Please use these to navigate to my tips and techniques that explore all aspects of conflict.

Testimonials

Please accept my deepest thanks also for your very thoughtful and thought provoking training. I have had many of our team share how valuable they felt that it was. You are very good at what you do and we are exceedingly fortunate to have you involved.

A Training Client

I found the assignments, class discussions, role playing, modeling the most valuable in this course. I appreciated the connection to current societal conflicts. I think the conflict analysis framework paper a valuable exercise. Deborah did a great job of taking over the class. Fabulous facilitator!

A Student

Deborah Sword is an accomplished and insightful facilitator. Her knowledge and grasp of the subject matter are strengths she brings to the classroom and to the forums. Learners are intrigued by her skillful presentation of complex material. Through discussion questions and discussions, Deborah invited learners to think beyond the boundaries – she promoted critical thinking skills and challenged learners to present material that reflected good writing and thinking skills. The learners responded to her high expectations.

Teaching, University Mentor

I did find the technology hard in the beginning, but after a while I worked it out. Because of the group and the online teacher I kept trying because I found it so interesting. This was top quality, the best online learning experience I have seen. My wife is taking two online courses from a university and she was very jealous of my experience. It is clear that Deborah was well trained and supported us throughout the process.
