The contemporary operating environments for both government and business is characterized by volatility, complexity, and uncertainty—perfect conditions for crises to emerge. This session teaches lessons in crisis leadership drawn from crisis leadership professionals—mountain climbing guides, military leaders, firefighters, and others who routinely lead in dangerous and crisis contexts. Participants will learn how leading in crisis contexts is unique compared to leading in more stable times.


Gen. Thomas Kolditz will work closely with you and your team to customize specific programs that increase learning and development. Together, you’ll create and implement a plan tailored specifically for your organization, resulting in measurable transformation. Programs and engagements include (but aren’t limited to) inspiring keynote presentations delivered by General Kolditz to ignite passion and interest, followed by interactive group exercises which implement new practices and foster collaboration. More in-depth offerings involve ongoing executive coaching and quarterly seminars on specific subject matter customized for each client. Previous clients include: Ford, GE, Google, Mercedes Benz, Boeing, All State, Goldman Sachs and many others.


“In Extremis Leadership is a myth-busting, heart-stopping, mind-blowing account of what it’s really like to lead in life-and-death situations.”
