Leadership is crucial in the event of a crisis. Quickly assessing risk, making decisions and acting are key components to leadership during such an emergency situation. The absence of these three actions could lead on a downward spiral for your organization, with one bad decision usually leading to another disaster that will completely cripple it (often ending up as either ceasing or being bought out). This course focuses not just on understanding what kind of leader you need when facing this type dilemma but also how you can leverage project management tactics to make the right decisions.
✔ Risk - an exposure to injury, loss, or hazard. Mitigated by assessments and use of the risk matrix.
✔ Decision - making up your mind on what you're going to do. During crisis, there may not be time for consensus building.
✔ Action - something done or performed. This is the execution piece of leadership where decisions come to life.
