The Third Side

From the blog mediator blah...blah...

I briefly touched on Harvard's Third Side Project a while back.

3S truly is worth an in-depth look.

Perhaps meant more for the consumer than the professional neutral, this website is nevertheless a wonderful resource.

Take a poke around the awesome 3S website and even download some free wallet cards or a Third Side One Day Workshop (
Download Facilitator's Guidebook / Download Participant's Guide).

Or perhaps try 3S tools.

Or even watch a video of William Ury addressing a conference on the role of The Third Side.

"The Third Side is a way of looking at the conflicts around us
from the larger perspective of the surrounding community"
