  • Testimonials

    I wondered if George Kohlreiser could create a worthy sequel to his masterful Hostage at the Table. Well, he, Susan and Duncan have, and then some! I love the concept of Secure Base Leadership. Genius in its simplicity, this book shows us that the Secure Base Leader provides a combination of safety and risk that creates the only possible means to success at innovation. Innovate or die’ is the seminal characteristic of today’s environment; Care to Dare is the key.
