Crisis Leadership 8

Program Experience

Effective leaders adopt proven principles for leading decisively during a crisis. They develop essential, functional response plans, continuously framing the crisis by embracing new information as it comes along, and adjust their response plans as appropriate.

Leaders must actively communicate across the organization, to customers, clients and employees, serving as a source of clear, accurate and consistent information. Ultimately, they drive towards actionable intelligence, prepared for unexpected challenges, effectively leveraging relationships to deal with limitations and determine, in advance, when and how external parties may be brought in to help.

Crisis Leadership can be taken as a stand-alone short course for targeted learning. When used as an elective in the FlexCert certificate for Leadership Essentials, you can tailor the program to resonate with your career aspirations and goals.
