Negotiating Resilience: Insights from Canada's Top Hostage Negotiator.
Jan 01, 2024 Season 5 Episode 1
Jason Birkevold Liem

Former police detective, hostage negotiator and international peacekeeper J. Paul Nadeau “Paul” spent more than 31 years working with victims of crime and perpetrators and learning from top experts in abuse situations, murder investigations, hostage takings, terrorist attacks and human behavior in general.

Over the course of his career, Paul talked hostage takers into giving themselves up and murderers into admitting to their crimes, and because of his extensive training and his unique approach to connecting with people of all walks of life and under every circumstance, his life was saved by a terrorist during a terrorist attack in the Middle East.

Paul understands the importance of connecting to others, without judgement, prejudice or fear, so that we can each contribute to helping the world become a better and safer place. He reflects this compassion in each of the books he writes, each seminar he runs, each life-coach motivational session he has and in each of his global keynotes. He is Canada’s most recognized hostage negotiator and the author of “Dammit, Just Ask!”, a book on negotiating in life and in business.
