Don’t Feed the Elephants! Overcoming the Art of Avoidance to Build Powerful Partnerships by Sarah Noll Wilson

WEST DES MOINES, IA January 24, 2022 - The COVID-19 crisis has shed light on just how critical internal communication is to a company’s success.  As business leaders look toward 2022, they’re reevaluating how to best support their teams. Don’t Feed the Elephants! by Sarah Noll Wilson is a deep dive into the human ability to avoid addressing conflict within a relationship, and in doing so creating a harmful barrier to success.

Great relationships aren’t the ones where there’s no conflict, but the ones where you can resolve and recover from the conflict and thrive because of it. When we approach our metaphorical elephants-in-the-room with compassion, curiosity, and courage, we’re able to dance in the moment with other people in a vulnerable way that opens our relationships to powerful possibilities.

By the end of Don’t Feed the Elephants! you’ll be equipped to push past your comfort zone, roll up your sleeves and get curious.

Freeing the elephants will help you have deeper more fulfilling relationships, better ideas through collaboration, greater clarity on what’s important to you and others, decreased stress & increased self-efficacy.

“Beautifully written with insights on every page, Sarah has put her finger on the toxic habits that keep us from solving the real problems that face our teams and companies. A must read.”
