About The Book From the multimillion-copy bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, hailed as the 1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century, The 3rd Alternative introduces a breakthrough approach to conflict resolution and creative problem solving.

The 3rd Alternative introduces a breakthrough approach to conflict resolution and creative problem solving, transcending traditional solutions to conflict by forging a path toward a third option.

A third alternative moves beyond your way or my way to a higher and better way—one that allows both parties to emerge from debate or even heated conflict in a far better place than either had envisioned. With the third alternative, nobody has to give up anything, and everyone wins.

Through key examples and stories from his work as a consultant, Covey demonstrates the power of 3rd Alternative thinking. His wide-ranging examples include a Canadian metropolitan police force that transformed a crime-plagued community; a judge who brought a quick, peaceful end to one of the biggest environmental lawsuits in American history without setting foot in a courtroom; the principal of a high school for children of migrant workers who raised their graduation rate from 30 percent to 90 percent; a handful of little-known people who are quietly finding new ways to bring peace to the Middle East; and many others.

These various groups and individuals offer living examples of how to create new and better results instead of escalating conflict, as well as how to build strong relationships based on an attitude of winning together.

Beyond conflict and compromise, The 3rd Alternative unveils a radical, creative new way of thinking. Excerpt 1. Problems that seem impossible to solve. Personal problems. Family problems. Problems at work, in our neighborhoods, and in the world at large.

You may have estranged relationships with your parents, siblings, or children. It could be that you feel overwhelmed and out of balance at work, always trying to do more with less. We worry about crime and its drag on our society.

We see politicians going at it and getting nowhere. We watch the news at night and lose hope that the perpetual conflicts between people and nations will ever be resolved. It is the highest and most important insight I have garnered from studying those people who lead truly effective lives.

All people suffer adversities, mostly in silence. Most soldier on bravely in the face of their problems, working and hoping for a better future. For many, terror is just under the surface. Some of these terrors are physical, some psychological, but all are very real. They are not only problem solvers but also creators of the new future we all dream of. A young man in India who is solving the problem of electric power for millions of poor people—at virtually no cost.

A police chief who cut the juvenile crime rate in a major Canadian city by half. A husband and wife who once could hardly speak to each other and now laugh together about those difficult days. The judge who brought a quick, peaceful end to the biggest environmental lawsuit in American history—without setting foot in a courtroom. A single mother and her teenager who went from bitter confrontation to renewed understanding and affection. A doctor who cures virtually all his patients of a deadly disease at a fraction of the price other doctors charge.

The team that transformed Times Square from a cesspool of violence and filth to the top tourist attraction in North America. Let me emphasize: none of these is a celebrity with lots of money and influence.

All are, for the most part, ordinary people who are successfully applying this supreme principle to their toughest problems. And so can you. The principle applies equally well to a single mother trying her hardest to raise a restless teenager as to a head of state trying to stop a war. You can apply this principle to A serious conflict at work with your boss or co-workers. A situation that has put you in financial trouble. A critical decision you have to make on your job. A battle over some issue in your neighborhood or community.

A weight problem. An issue that might drag you into court. I have taught the underlying principle of this book for more than forty years to literally hundreds of thousands of people. I have written this book to apply equally well to a playground, a battlefield, a boardroom, a legislative chamber, or a family kitchen.

But such a team must respect rather than repel differences and be devoid of hubris and territorialism, the great enemies of synergy. One of those problems is how to get vaccines to people in developing countries and save millions of lives. Vaccines must be kept cold at all times or they spoil and become useless. Even a few minutes of exposure to warm temperatures can destroy a whole shipment of vaccine; then lives are lost and millions of dollars are wasted. This is easy to avoid in developed countries with refrigeration and stable power supplies; but it is a big problem in developing countries. To solve the problem, Myhrvold brought together at his laboratory in Washington a very unusual team: experts in vending machines, coffee dispensers, and automatic weapons. Their invention looks like a large Thermos bottle; inside is another bottle where the vaccines are kept, and between the the bottles is a reservoir of cold liquid nitrogen.
