Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral)

Motivated and prepared teams with the right tools can not only survive a crisis, but they can also thrive in a crisis.

Unfortunately, the best teams can quickly fall apart in turbulent times without a crisis leadership strategy. 

Global pandemics, racial and social unrest, economic calamity, and other catastrophic events are just a few potential crises that can devastate an organization. An online poll of more than 2,000 executives and organizations found that a large percentage of respondents did not know what their biggest gap in crisis preparedness would be. Further, half of the respondents were unsure whether their teams would even be prepared to respond to a crisis.

Not having the tools to respond can cost an organization everything. Loss of revenues, market share, brand positioning, plus a loss of talent and employee trust are the first things that can impact your organization in times of crisis.

Anton Gunn has experienced the massive impact of a crisis. More than 20 years ago, the crisis of terrorism that devastated the American economy after 9/11 almost cost him and his family everything. But since that time, he has led a remarkable turnaround to become one of the most influential minority executives in healthcare and a former senior advisor to President Barack Obama.

With more than two decades of successful leadership development experience, helping some of America's top healthcare organizations, Anton has learned that any high-performing team can thrive through tough times by embracing a few key principles modeled by some of the greatest leaders.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify and understand disruptive environments.
  • Develop the right mindset during a crisis.
  • Build resilient teams that are prepared for adversity.
  • Respond to the impact of the crisis; do not react to the circumstances.
  • Become better prepared for the next challenge.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
