    EcSELL Institute Congratulates Lisa Earle McLeod

    by Jaime Davis-Thomas / December 14, 2010

    EcSELL Partner Honored for her Book

    EcSELL Institute Partner & Summit Instructor, Lisa Earle McLeod's book "The Triangle of Truth" has been nominated as the Best of 2010 Small Business Book Award.

    The Triangle of Truth
    The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Resolving Conflicts Large and Small
    January 5 from Penguin Putnam

    Buddha called it the Middle Path, Albert Einstein used it to reconcile competing beliefs about science and religion, and Mary Kay made it a foundation of her business and created a cosmetics empire.

    It’s The Triangle of Truth - a concept that is both old and new, and it’s the secret to solving problems everywhere from the bedroom to the boardroom and beyond.

    Drawing on wisdom from some of the world’s greatest thinkers, McLeod delivers a unique problem-solving model that goes beyond either/or thinking, recasting the debate on everything from sex and politics to business and religion.

    A rare blend of personal insight, business wisdom, everyday spirituality and humor, The Triangle of Truth is a just-in-time read for anyone who is tired of arguments, angst, and stalemates and is ready for real solutions to every problem, large or small.

    "A paradigm shift that has the power to change everything."
    —Marshall Goldsmith, America's preeminent executive coach and best-selling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There

    "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."
    —Harville Hendrix, best-selling author of Getting the Love You Want

    More praise for The Triangle of Truth:

    “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, best-selling author of Influencer: The Power to Change Anything and Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High

    "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 peace maker; 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, best-selling co-author of The Go-Giver

    “Whether you're a man or a woman, read The Triangle of Truth and you'll finally understand how to get along with "the other side.”

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

    "The Triangle of Truth is what comes out of the book oven when an extraordinary word chef like Lisa McLeod blends humor Cosby would envy with wisdom Buddha espoused and then adds a heaping cup of hit-you-where-you-live realism. You may giggle and sniffle but you will never be the same after reading this great book."

    --Chip R. Bell, author, Take Their Breath Away

    “I love this book! I LOVE Lisa’s writing style, she’s conversational with just the perfect edge of irreverence. She gives us a perspective on relationships and communication that can (and will) change peoples' lives."

    --Joe Calloway, business consultant and best-selling author of A Class Of One

    "Forget sneaky tactics or hardball negotiation. Whether you're selling a product, yourself, or an idea, The Triangle of Truth is the tool you need to get what you want and keep your integrity intact."

    --Susan Harrow, author of Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul

    “A break through book…that rare combination of insight, humor and truth will have people talking for years.”

    --Mike Robbins, best-selling author of Focus on the Good Stuff

    “This is a brilliant work of art and one that has the potential to dramatically speed up growth in business, change politics, and also dramatically decrease divorce rates as well as increase a 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 VP, Best Buy and Founder and CEO of WOLF Means Business
