Who should attend

Executives preparing for critical leadership scenarios, either due to the daily risks of company operations or a need to change organizational behavior with regard to mistakes. Thus, we will look for ways to turn insights from these events into a vital and effective learning culture.

About the course

We all know examples of executives leading organizations or teams into disaster, despite the fact that all involved had strong credentials and considerable experience. Regardless of the hierarchical levels of the persons involved, such scenarios should be seen as indicators that some fundamental assumptions about a system, operation, or task were wrong.

However, in most organizations, it is rare that the root causes of errors or crises are ever thoroughly examined. An exception is the aviation industry, whose members are prepared to confront mistakes in order to achieve operational excellence and manage life-threatening situations. Leadership under Pressure draws on this experience to illustrate ways of proactively managing potentially critical situations.
