How to turn loss into inspiration | George Kohlrieser | TEDxLausanne
Published on Mar 17, 2015
Everybody goes through losses, big and small – the loss of a job, the loss of a home, or even the loss of a loved one. Will you allow a loss to hold you “hostage” and limit you in your future endeavors, by focusing on regret, guilt or unresolved grief? Or will the experience of loss enable you to find a new identity or goal, re-connect with people, and enjoy life again?
In this talk, George Kohlrieser will address how you can not only get over each loss but from it draw new inspiration by rewiring your brain to “play to win”.
George Kohlrieser’s expertise and insights are drawn from his rich professional career as a clinical psychologist and hostage negotiator. He is currently a Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior at the IMD business school in Lausanne. He is the author of the award-winning bestseller Hostage at The Table: How Leaders Can Overcome Conflict.
The art of saying goodbye: Isabel Stenzel Byrnes at TEDxStanford
Published on May 23, 2014
Isabel Stenzel Byrnes is a bereavement social worker at Sutter Care at Home and Mission Hospice, and holds master of social work and master of public health degrees. She has lived with cystic fibrosis for 42 years and received a double-lung transplant 10 years ago at Stanford Hospital. She describes her illness journey as an invitation for opportunities to serve as an international patient advocate and to lecture on topics such as living well with illness, end-of-life issues and organ donation. Together with her twin sister, Anabel, she published the memoir The Power of Two, which inspired the creation of a documentary film of the same title. For fun, she plays the bagpipes to celebrate her lung donor.
