TheOtherDoor (TOD) portal is a hub for improving your confrontational abilities. 'Confrontational' is big word to describe any situation involves opposing points of view. Whether when negotiating a deal with a business partner, trying to resolve a conflict with a peer or when selling your products to a client you are within a confrontational situation. The same is true when you try to influence your kid to clean up his room or to solve a problem with your spouse. Your daily life, whether on the plant you live in and whether job you have bring about many confrontational situations for you to mange.

TOD is not an open forum where “the blind lead the blind.”
Think of conflict management, negotiation or any other confrontational situation as a long hallway with many doors. Those who are untrained tend to enter the first door they encounter—most often the one marked “compromise.”
Compromise means that both sides accept less than they actually want or need. TOD asks the question, “Why is it necessary to accept less?”
The Other Door teaches you to consider the door of compromise as just one of many options available to you. this is the first step of bettering yourself – Nosce Te Ipsum – know thyself and based on this self realization get better by understanding your human characteristics, replacing inaccurate paradigms, filling your toolbox with skills and adding my methodologies to your behavioral inventory.
In workshops, lengthy explanations tend to produce puzzled expressions on the faces of participants. My remedy is to provide stories, metaphors, and interactive role plays.
My goal was to do the same thing with TOD, so I developed “Bill,” an illustrated character you’ll meet in many places along The Other Door.
You’ll no doubt smile as hapless Bill finds himself in one conflict after another - conflicts with his boss, co-workers, clients, and even his wife and daughter.
Here's a picture of them all:
As you learn the techniques of TOD, you’ll always be one step ahead of Bill. So be patient with him as he learns his lessons along with you.
