InsideRisk’s High-Stakes Leadership in Action program was designed to help leaders dramatically increase their trust-building and critical thinking abilities. Based on the true story of Swiss executive J.P. Mottu, who in 1988 found himself in charge of saving a young engineer kidnapped by Colombian rebels, the program thrusts participants into real-life negotiations that had been kept secret for over 25 years.
Immersed in an interactive experience incorporating film, multimedia, and live moderation, participants experience high-stakes situations individually and in groups, exchanging invaluable insights and forging memorable relationships with peers. An optional online, e-learning-based 28-Day Follow-Through master class allow participants to further explore the main leadership behaviors experience during the live event.
InsideRisk’s High-Stakes Leadership in Action program was developed in collaboration with Professor George Kohlrieser of the IMD Business School in Lausanne, real-life hostage negotiator and leadership expert.

In InsideRisk LIVE, participants explore the story of the 1988 kidnapping of a Swiss engineer through an interactive experience incorporating film, multimedia, and live moderation. By way of provocative group exercises led by a trained expert in business psychology and group dynamics, the event fosters a deeper understanding of leadership skills and their application across group communication and decision-making processes.
