Comprehensive course analysis
About the course
This course builds upon the Core course with in-depth, case-based discussions that explore the most difficult situations you face as a crisis leader. Leading requires thinking and acting strategically in a crisis, moving beyond managing the transactions of “now.” Much of COVID-19, like other crises, was predictable. The Meta-leadership mindset and tools help you see the big picture to analyze and anticipate what lies ahead, and prepare your team to be ready and confident. Gain the wisdom and insight to lead your organization to the best possible outcome. You gain hands-on practice grappling with the tough tradeoffs and essential decisions inherent in crisis and change. Using discussions based on actual crisis situations, you will navigate difficult terrain and take effective action when everything is on the line. Faculty bring decades of field and academic experience to help participants get the most from each session.
You will learn to:
- Discover how to build your influence beyond authority and how to lead up to your boss, thereby
- navigating the sensitive political/executive-professional interface;
- Recognize the challenges of knowledge acquisition in a complex event –including the mysteries
- of COVID-19 -and develop proficiency in systematically “driving to the knowns”;
- Discern the perspectives and interests of divergent stakeholders–and their conflicts -and how
- to systematically negotiate mutually acceptable solutions;
- Distinguish the evolution of time in a crisis, and how to guide analysis, strategy, and decision-making
- over multiple “Arcs of Time,” from the initial crisis through conclusion;
- Grasp the moral and ethical tests inherent in any high-consequence crisis and how to avoid
- going over the “No Line” that is your moral compass.
