LEADERSHIP IN CRISIS SITUATIONS: PREPARATION FOR AND RESPONSE TO RAPIDLY-EVOLVING EVENTS

Professor Herman Dutch Leonard
Harvard Business School

Description:

In the harsh realities of today’s new world, organisations are increasingly exposed to both foreseeable and unknown risks. As leader in your organisation, you must be prepared to deal with emergencies and crisis events. Your abilities in organising actions in a moment’s notice in the face of great uncertainty and in managing yourself under stressful circumstances will help to ensure your organisation’s resilience when confronted with complex and unanticipated situations. How can we best prepare ourselves to deal with the foreseeable risks and the unknowable but nonetheless must be managed?
