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, leading during challenging time in high stress situations.
In the presence of collective anxiety, uncertainty, and need for meaning, people crave strong and hopeful leaders who believe in their own ability. As a matter of necessity, leaders need to prepare themselves in advance of crisis events; and HR professionals need to learn how to identify who will lead and who will freeze up in the face of difficult decision making. Because, when crisis does happen, it is too late to begin learning how to lead.
Crisis leadership is a skill and a process that can be learned. This workshop highlights the most effective leadership styles and behaviors in determining a leader’s impact on group performance in crisis contexts.
Diamond leaders successfully handle the challenges of leading under time constraints, with limited information, in emotionally charged contexts.
