74: You Are Me


Is every cop a criminal and every sinner a saint? My answer is yes. It doesn’t have to be your answer, but here’s what you discover when it is.

People are not their actions. Their actions will define them to the world. Their actions carry consequences. But at the core, every human being is the same. Every human being has the same needs, desires, emotions, and soul.

There is something that makes us human that lies beyond right and wrong or good and evil. It can’t be named; it can’t be captured by words. It just is.

Today’s guest, Paul Nadeau, doesn’t just hold this belief. He lives it. He lives it in a bold, courageous, and inspiring way.

He’s a former detective who became an internationally recognized crisis and hostage negotiator. He has a gift for conflict resolution, even when the conflict is extremely intense and violent.

Paul has done an acclaimed Ted Talk on the subject; CNN reaches out to him for consultation and insight on the subject of violent conflict and terrorism.

The secret to Paul Nadeau’s ability to defuse explosive rage is his deep compassion for the men and women intent on harming themselves and others.

Today, Paul shares his wisdom and knowledge about conflict resolution with business people and entrepreneurs. The skills he learned by risking his life can help you become more persuasive, influential, and caring. They can dramatically enrich your business and your life.

Listen to his gripping story. You will learn and grow. You may even transform your vision of the world.
