Leadership When the Sky Falls: Leadership Lessons from the Shuttle Columbia Disaster

by

Leadership When the Sky Falls: Leadership Lessons from the Shuttle Columbia Disaster Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Why write a book about leadership in times of crisis? Because it is needed. Disaster and large-scale incidents are growing in size, scope, and intensity on the American landscape. With this growth comes the commensurate need for good leadership during those times of crisis. Leaders who function well in a normal daily environment often find crisis leadership challenging. Pressure, time, and intensity freeze some leaders while it frees others. This book is a true story about team effort and leadership accomplished with excellence in the midst of a national crisis. It challenges the reader to ask, "What can I learn from experiences in the book, and what do I need to do to implement the fundamentals of crisis leadership before I need them most - while facing the next crisis?"
