Verbal Judo: Diffusing Conflict Through Conversation

Please check out this video clip of Dr. George Thompson speaking about Verbal Judo/Tactical Language at the Columbia Business School. It is 91 mins 12 seconds long.

Academic-turned-cop and best-selling author George Doc Thompson describes how tactical language allows leaders to achieve their goals. Daniel Ames, the Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Associate Professor of Leadership and Ethics, confirms that managing conflict is a critical predictor of leadership success and shows how what works in the streets converges with recent findings in social science. The workshop was part of the Program on Social Intelligences Science Meets Practice series, which pairs hands-on leadership training with breaking insights in psychology research.
