With Crisis, Comes Opportunity
Effectively managing crises has not always been an important component of an organization’s management structure, but with the advent of disruption becoming an all too common term within industry leaders’ vocabularies, business schools are finding themselves in a place to positively influence the crisis management strategies implemented by business leaders, as well as within their own institutions.
Erika James, dean of the Goizueta Business School at Emory University, joins John Fernandes during this episode of eNEWSLINE Live. They discuss effective strategies for leading members of an organization in times of crisis and pressure, both within industry and management education. Dean James brought a noteworthy portfolio of research and consulting experience regarding effective decision making under pressure, managing change processes, workplace diversity, and building trust to this discussion. She is the former president of the Institute for Crisis Management and has authored numerous papers and multimedia case studies on her topics of research, including her "After the Oil Spills: Deepwater Horizon" case studies.
The next broadcast will be announced shortly.
