Crisis Leadership

 1 Full Day  |  .6 CPUs

Crisis leadership is a skill and a process that can be learned. This course highlights the most effective leadership styles and behaviors in determining a leader's impact on group performance in crisis contexts.

Crisis creates time-pressured changes from standard operating procedures that have significant consequences on people and performance. Organizational survival during crises often depends on the emergence and preparedness of a leader equipped with knowledge of, and experience in, crisis leadership.

This Crisis Leadership course prepares you to successfully handle the challenges of leading under time constraints, with limited information, in emotionally charged contexts. Using experiential learning, we employ a combination of learning skill-building activities that create awareness of your abilities to lead during crises, knowing what personal and external resources are available to you, and doing the necessary steps to mitigate consequences.

Learn leadership in practical ways, creating a personal case study to determine potential sources of crises, and construct a leadership plan.

The team from Nova Southeastern University came to Daytona Beach to meet with us, they listened to our needs and customized a program for our Synergy Leadership Academy. We found the program to be highly effective and very engaging. Our employees came away with a much higher level of self-awareness and a set of new skills that they could put to use right away.
