How to lead effectively in a turbulent and fast-moving world
Overcoming the mindset of fear and developing the muscle memory of crisis response is the objective of the GCSP Crisis Management courses. Rather than a tick-box approach of a process driven response participants will learn to recognise and adapt the psychological and organisational elements of crisis management. This is achieved by combining latest theory, best practice and lessons learnt using real time simulations that enable participants to explore their resilience as individuals, team members and leaders.
This course will provide you a powerful combination of critical knowledge, improved skills and new techniques that will enable you to have the confidence in your ability to face the rapidly evolving challenges of a rapid onset crisis. Specifically, you will:
- undertake a self-assessment that evaluates your preparedness as an individual and at an organisational level
- deepen your understanding of the various characteristics of different types of crisis
- improve your ability to analyse complex issues, assess various options and establish an effective crisis management team
- understand the leadership and decision making challenges associated with crises and avoid the pitfalls of various psychological biases
- experience in real time specific complex crisis that you will have to navigate and manage.
