Gain the tools and skill set you need to successfully lead through a crisis.
Most of us believe we would make the right decisions in the early moments of a crisis, but very few of us truly know the stress and pressure of those situations.

When mishandling a crisis often results in senior staff resignations, it is critical to be prepared. The urgent complexities of a crisis require the skillset and knowledge to effectively:
It can quickly become impossible to recover from poor early decisions, a miscalculation, or a delayed/incorrect response. However, with the right response team and plan in place, leaders can lead through a crisis in a way that protects the institutional brand with minimal fallout. Join us for this unique and experiential opportunity to learn how to successfully navigate your institution through a crisis.
Designed to empower institutional leaders to guide and direct efforts on campus, this training will be intensive and outcomes-driven. Throughout the event, you will take part in a simulation of the complexities and pressures of the early hours of a crisis and improve your ability to successfully navigate these types of situations.
