Description: Change is at the heart of leadership and the most challenging leadership experiences often occur during times of crisis when change is unfolding at a breathtaking pace. Leadership strategies employed during crises can be quite different than times of routine change. In this course we'll explore courses of action, both taken and not taken, by leaders facing extraordinary decisions during major public crises such as the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, Swine Flu in 1976, and Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
