Crisis Management Workshop: Putting all the Pieces Together in a Time of Crisis

While crisis management begins with planning, decision-making begins with knowing.

The world is facing increasingly complex, multiple and overlapping crises. Managing them requires timely and tailored decision-making in often volatile and diverse environments. Because 21st century crises require 21st century responses, the GCSP is offering cutting-edge education for professionals to leverage their technical skills and innovative thinking in designing a crisis management plan. This workshop will enable participants to tangibly help them as individuals – as well as their organizations – to foresee, manage and overcome a diverse range of crises.

Key benefits for you

The workshop will enable you to:

  • Develop your ability to design, implement and assess effective and comprehensive crisis management plans.
  • Explore crisis management tools and skills that effectively help you to manage and overcome crises.
  • Enhance your leadership skills to identify key stakeholders and effectively communicate.

Why you should attend

Regardless of its nature, a crisis brings disruption that can significantly affect any professional activities regarding the protection of their employees, assets or mandates. Crisis management is a core leadership skill for professionals that requires practical approach and insightful exchange of experience.

Crisis management and decision-making sit at the intersection of several core GCSP competencies including leadership, resilience and international security policy.

This workshop will provide professionals with a unique learning environment, exploring with their mentors and experienced practitioners the most effective tools to handle a crisis from the prevention to the recovery phase.
