Inaugural Event
Leading Courageously in Crisis: Rules of the Road
Featuring Author and Historian, Nancy Koehn
Wednesday, August 19 | 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM EST
Nancy F. Koehn is a historian at the Harvard Business School where she holds the James E. Robison chair of Business Administration. Koehn's research focuses on effective leadership and how leaders, past and present, craft lives of purpose, worth, and impact. Her recent book, Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times spotlights how five of history’s greatest leaders successfully navigated crises and what we can learn from each of their experiences.
Session Overview : Leading Courageously in Crisis: Rules of the Road will present critical tools, insights, and behaviors for leading courageously in crisis. We will examine a number of “Rules of the Road” for helping you, your team, and your followers navigate through the current crises, including COVID-19, the economic downturn, and the campaign for equality and justice. We will focus on how, in the midst of widespread volatility and high stakes, you can raise the level of your game as a leader. And we will explore how to motivate your people in a multi-stage crisis as well as how to take care of yourself in this environment.
