Minneapolis, Minnesota

Bill George, professor of management practice at Harvard Business School, moderated a “Summit on Leading in Crisis: Personal stories from the trenches,” Sept. 17, at the Ted Mann Concert Hall at the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis. The summit’s four panel members included John Donahoe, chair and CEO, eBay; David Gergen, CNN commentator and Director, Center for Public Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School; Anne Mulcahy, chair and former CEO, Xerox; and Marilyn Carlson Nelson, chair and former CEO, Carlson Companies.

The panel members have dealt with crises radiating from the White House, offices and boardrooms of global companies, and their own personal lives. Their discussion touches on the causes behind many of the problems our country faces and the ways that courageous leaders can address them.

Twin Cities Public Television (tpt) will initially broadcast an hour-long recording of the panel’s discussion three times: Sunday, Dec. 13, tpt2, 4pm; Sunday, Dec. 13, tptMN, 9pm; and Sunday, Dec. 20, tptLIFE, 1pm. Minnesota viewers should check local listings for stations.

A free DVD of the program, Leading in Crisis:  Personal Stories, is available from the George Family Foundation, 612-377-3356.
