Sibling Relations in History Guest: Amy Harris, PhD, Associate Professor of History, BYU, Author of “Siblinghood and Social Relations in Georgian England” Sibling relationships can be some of our closest and most rewarding. They can also be competitive and volatile. But at the end of your life, the people you’ve known the longest will have been your siblings. They were around long before you married. They’ll probably be around long after your parents are gone.  We’re going to hear, this hour, about some brothers and sisters who lived during the 18th century, when our modern idea of what it means to be “family” was just emerging. The Anatomy of Peace: Resolving the Heart of Conflict Guest: Jim Ferrell, Managing Partner, The Arbinger Institute The Kansas City SWAT team led by Senior Sergeant Chip Huth was once one of the most-complained about units in the Kansas City police department. They had a reputation for manhandling suspects, trashing their homes, and shooting suspicious dogs on sight. Each complaint received cost the city an average of $70,000 to investigate, and they used to garner two to three complaints a month. But there hasn’t been a complaint about Huth’s SWAT team in a decade.  What changed?  The officers learned a couple essential lessons that could transform police relations around the country and the way people in other fields perform business, as well. The Kansas City Police Department turned to leadership consultants at The Arbinger Institute to help them transform their culture.
