Managing Yourself and Others During Crises
Key Leadership Visions, Approaches, and Dispositions to Survive and Thrive
Managing Yourself and Others During Crises: Key Leadership Visions, Approaches, and Dispositions to Survive and Thrive is about managing yourself and others during crisis situations like the recent unprecedented global pandemic that promulgated chaos in the operations of most human societies and institutions including family structures, educational procedures and practices, work relationships and settings, religious observances, governmental functions, protocols, and processes. This book provides insights based on the knowledge and experiences of practicing leadership and policy experts about keeping organizations functioning, as best as possible, during crises situations. They articulate practical approaches based on sound leadership research for ensuring that the people, things, and ideas of seminal societal institutions like education not only survive the crisis but also continue to thrive. Key leadership visions, approaches, and personal dispositions to cope with such monumental and unexpected changes are presented by chapter authors who not only studied crises situations but also personally lived through them and appropriately managed themselves and others using various comprehensive strategies, techniques, and coping mechanisms based on leadership best practices in educational organizations.
