If you like to think about how you think, you may want to read Tim Milburn’s review of "The Opposable Mind: How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative Thinking" by Roger L. Martin. The book discusses the concept of integrative thinking:
The ability to face constructively the tension of opposing ideas and, instead of choosing one at the expense of the other, generate a creative resolution of the tension in the form of a new idea that contains elements of the opposing ideas but is superior to each.
For lawyers who are used to fighting out the opposing ideas, this book may offer a refreshingly new perspective. I imagine, mediators may find it useful too. I've just added the book to my Amazon wishlist.
