Episode Description

A firefighter rushes into a burning building. An army commander leads his troops through a dangerous mission. An ordinary woman helps her colleagues evacuate the building safely and efficiently after an earthquake. In times of emergency, people often display incredible leadership in the face of danger and uncertainty. What can we learn from those situations and how can we cultivate the same values in less dangerous, yet still high-stakes moments? Drawing on real-life extreme situations, retired Brigadier General and West Point instructor Professor Thomas Kolditz’s in extremis leadership model translates these lessons into a framework for leading effectively in your career and life. Join Host Kate Ebner this Veteran’s Day (November 11) for this special show to celebrate the extraordinary leadership of the men and women who have served in our armed forces.
