We’re about to take RISK to a whole new level today with my guest Marc Wallert. Twenty years ago, he was kidnapped with 20 other hostages, by terrorists on a Philippine island and held captive in the jungle for 140 days. The jungle didn’t destroy him, but once he returned to Germany, everyday life drove him to burnout. These two experiences helped him better understand how to be resilient and move through crises. Today he shares his jungle strategies as a speaker, consultant and author of the book Strong Through Crises: The art of not losing your head. His story is incredible and his tips are practical for every day life.

If you’re like most people, commitment gets associated with others - clients, family, work peers, community, friends. For some there’s a good balance between professional and personal commitments, while others feel more pulled to one side.
