Hostage at the Table: How Leaders Can Overcome Conflict, George Kohlrieser an international leadership professor, consultant, and veteran hostage negotiator explains that it is only by openly facing conflict that we can truly progress through the most difficult business challenges In this provocative book, he reveals how the proven techniques and psychological insights used in hostage negotiation can be applied successfully to any personal or business relationship Step by step, he outlines the seven key factors that anyone can use to remove the blocks that stand in the way of resolving tough problems and shows how business leaders, in particular, can develop and access the skills they need to create trust and a positive mind set in their companies ,, ,,, , ,, 3.1 , 1 2 , 3 1.2.3 ,.4 ,.56.7.8 The English review is placed beneath Russian one,,, The English review is placed beneath Russian one,, , , , , ., non fiction.The title of the book will definitely put the reader in a dead end somewhere in the middle of the book and maybe even earlier Personally, I perceived the book as a book about negotiations and the first pages of the book confirmed it as if In reality, the book has little in common with works like Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher, William Ury, Bruce Patton, Start with No by Jim Camp or Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss It sthan just negotiations if you can put it that way It is a book about how not to be taken hostage either physically or emotionally, i.e when you are manipulated or you give in to someone else s opinion and follow their will This also means, according to the author, to be held hostage The author writes about this rather extensive topic Did it work No, I don t think so It s too broad a topic for such a small work Also the author was lazy or could not or did not want to write an in depth study Everything in the book can be found in many other books And I think it would be even better if you looked at specialized literature and read several books, not one , because again the depth.Yes, the author writes a lot about different types of situations that fall under the definition of becoming a hostage , but as I said, everything is, absolutely too superficial Moreover, the author will refer to such authors as Robert B Cialdini, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Napoleon Hill and so on, which speaks volumes No, the problem isn t with these authors, but that they themselves cite the original source in their works And it would be okay, but if we look at these authors, we will find that they are different and unrelated Robert B Cialdini is social psychology, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is positive one That is, the range of topics is too great.The second point is that it is practically impossible to use it in one s own life Yes, there are a lot of examples in the book the author has a special love for tragic stories, which is why the moment comes when you stop empathizing , but without a clear and strict structure, without clear theory All this is difficult to incorporate into your life That is, not only everything is superficial, but also continuous general reflections, common words, without any specifics.The author emphasizes the skill of connecting with people , to be emotionally connected with the interlocutor, to hear him and his emotions, to be as if his echo This skill will appear throughout most of the book Well, and a fewtopics that the author will mention Stockholm syndrome and how it helped some people survive in a hostage situation building a positive mental state a worn out topic a very strange topic grief, where the author writes how to help people overcome it creating a reliable base where parents can act as a base, for example negotiations everything is very superficial and nothing new emotions there are also standard recipes, such as the risk of being in a state of anger, etc communication active listening to the interlocutor, etc., and also nothing new.In general, the book was very, very boring I couldn t get anything new for myself And the only one who can and will be interested in everything that the author writes about is the one who has not read the book non fiction on popular psychology at all But again, there are many other,successful options Heel interessant, van de eerste tot de laatste bladzijde Het laat je nadenken over hoe je jezelf verbindt aan doelen en mensen En over hoe je dat beter kunt doen, persoonlijk en zakelijk De voorbeelden die hij geeft laten zien hoe dat werkt in uiteenlopende, extreme situaties Aanrader voor iedereen.
