    George Kohlrieser Keynote Topics

    As a former hostage negotiator, George has seen first-hand the pain and agony that victims endure at the hands of their hostage takers. Hopefully you have never been in this physical situation. In the world of business, you can be a hostage without a weapon. George has seen this happen countless times – individuals who are hostage to their fears, guilt, regrets, self-doubts, or the actions of others.

    By openly facing conflict, we can effectively progress through the most difficult business challenges. The proven techniques of hostage negotiation result in a 95% success rate. Use these very same techniques in any personal or business relationship so you are never a hostage to anyone, anything, or even to yourself. This enables you to lead with your full potential.

    In conversation with Dr Edith Eva Eger – at 92 one of the last survivors of the holocaust, bestselling author of The Choice, and an internationally-renowned psychotherapist, on how to make the journey from victimization to empowerment.

    Known as ‘The ballerina of Auschwitz,’ Edith is an extraordinary example of leadership, the power of mindset and how anything can be transformed into a source of inspiration.

    Where in your life can you turn loss into inspiration?

    High performing leaders overcome their fears, courageously make decisions, and overcome conflicts to raise performance. They have the ability to turn adversaries into allies by focusing on common goals. Words are a powerful tool for a high performing leader. Learning how to use and listen to them is essential to achieving outstanding results.

    Transformation happens when you have demonstrated the characteristics that are part of secure base leadership and mastered the power of words. I have witnessed countless inspiring stories of how doing this can create trust and inspiration for individuals, teams, and organizations. You can then live your personal and professional dreams with full joy. You can inspire your followers and foster an environment for innovation and creativity.

    Do you want to build trust, drive change, inspire others, build high performing teams, and create an empowered organizational culture?
