This year I taught a leadership and geography class for a group of homeschooled teenagers in our area. These teens are wonderful kids, and we had a lot of fun as they explored how they could make a difference in the world.
One of the best things we did as a class was have the opportunity to participate in an online conference call with George Kohlrieser. He is known around the world for his leadership experience. He is a psychologist, a Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior at IMD business school in Switzerland, and (the thing that my students thought was the most exciting) he is a hostage-negotiator!
Dr. Kohlrieser has written a book called “Hostage at the Table: How Leaders Can Overcome Conflict, Influence Others, and Raise Performance.”
