Leadership in Crises: Preparation and Performance, Short Course

  • Application Deadline
  • 5 days
Leadership in Crises: Preparation and Performance is designed to help senior managers from the public, private and nonprofit sectors work with their peers across sectors to best position themselves and their organizations to successfully manage, survive and recover from the unexpected.


Leaders prepared today for the challenges of tomorrow stand a much stronger chance of successfully managing a crisis. Part of this process is learning how to work collaboratively across organizational and/or jurisdictional boundaries before a crisis occurs. Leadership in Crises teaches how to build the skills that make for a more successful management process, how to effectively gather critical information, adapt to unique circumstances, and prioritize effectively. The course also teaches participants how to build bridges across boundaries, presenting perspectives on planning, training, and exercising so that senior managers have systems in place in advance of a critical event.
