Leading During a Crisis


All leaders face crises – whether for themselves or their organizations.  Being able to properly plan for and handle expected and unexpected crises is critical to the success of any leader or organization. This webinar, originally presented at the 2020 Envision Conference, will examine the nature of crises and what leaders should do to prepare or “inoculate” their organization as well as quickly organize their own thinking and the direction of their organization when crises strike.  It will also examine how to create a “learning organization” that allows leaders to consider what lessons the crisis has provided that the team must incorporate for the future. This session was originally recorded for the 2020 Envision virtual conference.
