Many of you may be familiar with Getting to Yes, which is written by William Ury and Roger Fisher. In this well-known book, the two Harvard professors describe the notion of facilitative negotiation to assist parties in conflict. Since that initial work in the early 1980s, they have expanded upon the ideas that assist conflicting parties in resolving their differences. In this Tedtalk, William Ury posits that there is another key to resolving conflicts, both large and small. Ury says: a?The secret to peace is us. Itas us who act as the surrounding community around any conflict who play a constructive role.a?

Ury explains how in a tribe of bushmen in Africa, the tribe does not a?rest until they have a resolution or better yet, reconciliation,a? and that it is the a?third sidea? in a conflict who reminds the conflicting parties of whatas at stake. In essence, he says that a?the third side helps us go to the balcony, which is a metaphor for a place of perspective, where we can keep our eyes on the prize.a?

After listening to this talk, which focuses largely on re-framing the story of Abraham, from one of hostility to one of hospitality, can you identify any conflicts where you play a significant role as a third party? How can (or has) your perspective as a third party to a conflict assist(ed) the parties in resolving their differences? Have you had any positive or negative experiences to confirm or refute this idea of a third partyas potentially constructive role?
