Episode 9: Dick Simon (RSI, Inc.), Boston, MA, USA

The most dangerous four-letter word in the English language is them. Because in the context of conflict, we just look at others as them. YPO member Dick Simon co-created the YPO Peace Action Network to promote conflict resolution by engaging business leaders on the opposite sides of conflicts. In this episode, Simon shares how he led international CEOs on worldwide excursions to address stereotypes and how to effectively resolve conflicts, big or small.
