Workshop Details

This program is part of our Integral Leadership Program Summer Leadership Series.
Why do some leaders overcome impossible barriers, go beyond unbearable pressure and frustration, and persevere in order to achieve extraordinary outcomes in situations where others would give up? The answer to that question has never been clearer. Through their desire for relentless improvement, leaders at the edge can unlock the highest levels of performance from themselves and others, making work a more exciting place to be for themselves and those around them. Leading at the edge enables people to "play to win" rather than simply "playing not to lose." It is a profound process of leading oneself and others.
People are facing intense pressure like never before. There are so many complex changes and challenges today, which create the necessity for high levels of engagement to reach high performance. Drawing on research on high performance from the world of sports, business, medicine, music, theater, military, and hostage negotiation, George Kohlrieser will lead participants through mini theory presentations, action learning, group process, role playing, and action planning designed to foster cutting-edge leadership skills, including how to take appropriate risk, inspire trust, drive change, and create opportunities to foster success for themselves, their teams, and their organizations.
