The Program

A Resilient Organization is a happy, healthy, balanced, vital, and caring enterprise. For these reasons it adapts agilely to stress and change and can turn sudden adversity to advantage. Because the managers make wiser decisions, Resilient Organizations are also likely to be more productive, innovative, and if corporations, profitable. Integral Resilience is a core organizational competency that can be tracked and measured by an Integral Resilience Quotient.

The 1-day Introductory Program focuses intensively on your organization’s central challenges in any or all the areas listed.

We produce a Strategic Road Map and Action Plan based on the Resilient Organization system and the 10 Essential Moves. All participants receive support and online coaching in the system for 30 days producing a Resilience Advantage, reflected in a measurable increase in the organization’s Integral Resilience Quotient (IRQ).


  • 1-day training (number of participants unlimited). If multiple locations, program can be presented and videotaped using BHT’s webinar platform.
  • Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan with analytics
  • Individual access for The Resilient Negotiator™/Realizing Your Passion/Advancing Your Cause
  • Copies of Julian Gresser, Piloting Through Chaos—The Explorer’s Mind (2013)
  • IT Platform integration of apps and graphs to track and to analyze individual participant’s and organization’s progress
  • 30-Day Online Coaching in The Resilient Negotiator and the 10 Essential Moves
  • Codex of over 100 applications
  • 5 Minutes to Resilience™ series based on the 10 Essential Moves™ (
  • 5 Resilient Reflex Practice Balls
  • 1-hour final Webinar to assess progress and further Implementation

Essential Questions

  • Q: What are your organization’s 5 most important present or future challenges? How do you currently track and measure the effectiveness of your present navigational system?
  • Q: Why is investing in the happiness, health, vitality, and resilience of your employees the smartest action your company can take? What might be the ROI of even a 5%-10% improvement in productivity or cost savings as a result of this single decision?
  • Q: How well informed is your CFO about your organization’s financial expenditures last month? How does your organization account for “expenditures” of vital energy and creativity? What if there is a way both to measure and also to increase your holdings of these essential assets?      
  • Q: How precisely do you understand the strengths and weaknesses in the character of every employee in your organization? How can you use this intelligence to build happier, more productive organizations, while addressing serious problems before they surface?
  • Q: How will you measure the financial return to your organization of an increase of 5%- 10% of the performance of your sales teams per month? Why is Integral Resilience a powerful methodology to deliver enhanced sales performance?
  • Q: Why is identifying and building on micro-‘wins’, ‘reverses’ and ‘recoveries’ the secret of continuous enhanced performance (kaizen)?
  • Q: How might the Resilient Organization system solve a central challenge of all strategic alliances: how to build sustainable trust?
  • Q: What if with one click you can instantly view your organization’s progress toward Multiplying Resilience Advantage?
  • Q: Who says the entire process can’t be great fun from beginning to end?

Audio Q & A: It may be useful in deciding whether you want to build a Resilient Organization, strategic alliance, or even a network of such alliances to have the gist of answers to the above questions. As we are all very busy, let’s see if we can capture the essence in a few minutes.

Julian Gresser

Career Highlights as a Professional Negotiator

Julian Gresser is an international attorney, social entrepreneur, professional negotiator, inventor, and recognized expert on Japan. As a negotiator his most dramatic success involved helping a San Francisco-based trading company transform its $8 million after-tax branch into a $1 billion Japanese company in seven years. This transaction originated by Julian Gresser and his colleague, Professor James E. Schrager, has come to be called “Going Public Japanese Style” adopting the title of an article they jointly authored in the Wall Street Journal. From 1976-1983 he was twice Visiting Mitsubishi Professor at the Harvard Law School and also taught courses as a Visiting Professor at MIT on the legal issues of strategic industries. He has been a Visiting Professor at Beijing University, where he taught seminars on Japanese and U.S. environmental law, and also helped the Chinese environmental authorities draft China’s Marine Pollution Control Law.

In 1981 Julian Gresser co-founded The Pacific Law Group, with offices in Los Angeles and Tokyo, in partnership with another American expert on Japanese law, the former CEO of the Bank of Tokyo, and the former Director of the Tax Bureau of the Ministry of Finance. Julian Gresser has served as legal and business advisor to numerous U.S., Japanese, and European companies on a wide array of business issues, including joint ventures, limited (venture capital) partnerships, technology licensing, export controls and customs fraud, antitrust, and intellectual property protection, particularly patent infringement disputes. He has been a senior consultant to the U.S. State Department, The World Bank, The Prime Minister’s Office of Japan, The People’s Republic of China, and the European Commission (where he trained the Commission’s Japanese negotiating teams). He is the author of eight books in English and Japanese, including most recently two online “living” books and a new series of online courses based on the algorithm of Integral Resilience. MORE


Consulting, In-house Training Engagements, and Participants in Workshops


“The emphasis throughout Piloting Through Chaos is on negotiation, but the analysis and wisdom go well beyond that now available in the literature. This volume is a breakthrough in the use of words, thought processes and managing behavior responsibly.”

– Oliver Oldman, Learned Hand Professor (Emeritus), Harvard Law School

“Julian Gresser assesses some of the fundamental aspects of human behavior. Any negotiator, however experienced, will find new insights in this book.”

– Peter Price, Honorary Member of the European Parliament

“One portfolio company had been mired in negotiations with a foreign company for over a year. In one day’s training, they put together a new plan and team, and three months later closed an OEM agreement worth millions.”

Dr. Chuck K. Chan, General Partner, Alpine Technology Ventures

“IPOs in China and Japan, inventions in clean energy, decoding Japanese negotiation strategies, incubators for creativity and innovation, the role of beauty in discovery and bringing ideas to market—Julian Gresser is a Renaissance man with an amazing array of achievements and gifts.”

– John Tarrant, Zen master, author, Bring Me the Rhinoceros and other works

“Gresser is an international attorney, but also a 21st Century Renaissance Man, with a lifetime of experience in business, music, martial arts, invention, and meditation.”

Kenneth Cohen, author of The Way of Qigong and Honoring the Medicine

“Julian Gresser’s work shows with insight, style and imagination how integrity, that most fundamental of human virtues, continues to be vital to success, and even survival, in the ongoing negotiation of life in our rapidly changing world.  The added value in Piloting Through Chaos is the author’s suggestions on how integrity can be cultivated by conscious thought and action, and on how core integrity can affect outcomes in a variety of contexts.”

Peter L. Murray, Visiting Professor of Law, Harvard Law School

“The market is flooded with books and tapes about negotiating, but no one, until now, offers insight into the underlying essence of our interpersonal abilities. This fresh approach, if followed, can be transforming for us as individuals, and as a nation.”

– Claudine Schneider, Former U.S. Congresswoman

“Julian is 100% invested in teaching; an active listener; dedicated to ensuring that the class learns; he is high in energy and empathetic. What would my comments be to future participants? Exciting; out-of-the-box; has life application; fundamental to all relationships.”

– Bobbie Busha, Manager, BellSouth

“We need a cultural revolution as transformative as were the scientific and industrial revolutions. If human culture is to survive without unacceptable impacts on the planetary environment, we must live differently as a culture. This means that the arts and humanities are on the front lines of collaborating with scientists and engineers, we need a ‘second renaissance.’ Julian Gresser, in the second edition of “Piloting through Chaos,” presents a sharply focused methodology for attacking some of the urgent problems and seizing the new opportunities.”

Roger Malina, Editor, Leonardo

“Julian Gresser is one of those rarest of teachers. He embodies the wisdom that he shares. His pioneering work in negotiation is a quantum leap in human understanding and will move people to their highest level of truth and accomplishment. The value is incalculable, not only to individuals, but to our society.”

– Michael Fitzgerald, Former Director, Washington State Department of Trade & Economic Development

“There is widespread agreement that leadership at any level and in any area requires integrity in the person, the practice, and the profession. It is also clear that this is no easy, simple task, nor can it remain at the mercy of luck, sentimental or institutional formation. Julian Gresser – lawyer, scholar, martial artist, and street-smart practitioner – now makes available the teaching and achievement of integrity in its integral form. As a foundation president, former commissioner, ambassador, and university president, I have had occasion to enlist Julian’s remarkable system and energies. He/it is a godsend for our troubled times and leaders.”

– Dr. Glen A. Olds, U.S. Ambassador to UNESCO
