Authors @ Drucker is an interview series featuring one author every month. In this series, you’ll learn the stories of some of the most successful business-owning families in the world. We will cover topics like business succession, innovation, conflict management, and generational dynamics. In this session, Chad Ford will be discussing his book Dangerous Love: Transforming Fear and Conflict at Home, at Work, and in the World.
Chad Ford is an associate professor of International Cultural Studies and Director of the McKay Center for Intercultural Understanding at BYU-Hawaii. His emphasis is on intercultural peacebuilding and mediation. He has led peacebuilding workshops and mediations around the world, including in the Middle East, Africa, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
Ford also was the co-founder and former CEO of Sportstalk.com, a highly successful internet start-up that was purchased by ESPN in 2001. He spent several years as a senior editor and writer at ESPN before leaving his full-time position in 2005 for his current posts with the McKay Center.
As the Director of the McKay Center, Ford leads a team dedicated to fulfilling President David O. McKay’s vision that “from this school … will go men and women whose influence will be felt for good towards the establishment of peace internationally.” Those projects include community reconciliation projects, peer mediation, Anatomy of Peace workshops, and various other projects in conjunction with partners around the world. Ford also works on several projects outside the Center. Currently, he’s partnering on a major project in the Middle East and in several cities in the US with the Arbinger Institute and PeacePlayers to create sustainable peace between communities in conflict.
