"A must-read for anyone who wants to be more successful."
-Keith Ferrazzi, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Who's Got Your Back

This engaging and eye-opening book presents a bold model for rising above either/or thinking, recasting the debate on everything from sex and politics to business and religion.

With refreshing wit and honesty, business consultant and columnist Lisa McLeod reveals why most of what we've been told about conflict resolution and compromise is wrong-and why the answers to even the most complex problems are closer at hand than we might think. A rare combination of personal insight, business wisdom, and humor, The Triangle of Truth is a just-in-time read for anyone who is tired of the arguments, angst, and stalemates and is ready for real solutions to our problems, large and small.

Praise For…

"A paradigm shift that has the power to change everything. The Triangle of Truth is ancient wisdom on a twenty-first-century platform."
-Marshall Goldsmith, author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"In a remarkably quick read, Lisa Earle McLeod shows us how we can avoid the pitfalls that stem from either/or thinking."
-Tom Rath, author of How Full Is Your Bucket

"Every CEO in America should read this book! Lisa Earle McLeod unlocks the secret of ending turf wars and creating a culture of accountability, candor, and creativity. Whether you work with one person or thousands, The Triangle of Truth is a must-read for anyone who wants their team to become more successful."

"The Triangle of Truth is simple, elegant, and instantly effective- love this approach."
-Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Secret Pleasures of Menopause

"Most 'truths' about life are simple when you figure them out, and life is often very complicated until you do. In The Triangle of Truth, Lisa Earle McLeod describes and profusely illustrates the futility and destructiveness of either/or thinking and with equally profuse illustrations offers a startlingly simple third option- both, And. Poof!- the end of conflict, including war, and the beginning of peace by including the perspective of others. I salute this accessible manual for world peace and recommend it to everyone."
-Harville Hendrix, PhD, author of Getting the Love You Want and co-creator of Imago Relationship Therapy

"Intellectual heft on inspirational wings."
-Michael Alvear, Creative Loafing

"Most of the mischief in our lives and in the world comes from our egregious inability to be both absolutely honest and absolutely respectful with each other at the same time. Lisa McLeod offers powerful, practical, and timely solutions to help us dramatically improve our lives and our organizations by striking at the root of this pernicious problem."
-Joseph Grenny, author of Influencer and Crucial Conversations

"In this ingeniously written book, Lisa shows us how to forever do away with the 'false dilemma,' the unnecessary use of the word 'or,' and instead find the best alternative. No, not compromise, not forgo your values or desires, but to step it up a notch and create a bigger pie for everyone involved. Be a peacemaker; not a peacekeeper. The information in this book has the potential to raise mass consciousness and result in a better, more prosperous, and more peaceful world."
-Bob Burg, coauthor of The Go- Giver

-Gail Evans, former executive vice president of CNN News Group and author of Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman

You may giggle and sniffle but you will never be the same after reading this great book."

-Lisa Daily, Daytime correspondent and author of How to Date Like a Grown- up

"This is a brilliant work of art and one that has the potential to dramatically speed up growth in business and change politics, and also dramatically decrease divorce rates as well as increase good night's sleep! If we all can build a muscle in seeing the higher cause instead of wasting time and energy debating for the sake of being 'right,' amazing outcomes will occur!"
-Julie Gilbert, former executive vice president of Best Buy and founder of WOLF Means Business
