Crisis Simulations International Senior Leader Crisis Education

THE IMPERATIVE

SENIOR LEADERS hold the ultimate responsibility for equipping their organizations to effectively prepare for crisis, to prevent it when possible, and to minimize its impact and recover quickly when necessary. Because on-the-job training during a real crisis is tragically late, Though most organizations engage in some form of crisis management training, it tends to be highly tactical and does not address issues of intra/extra-organizational integration and interdependency. Even the chiefs of bureaus such as police and fire rarely train as a team with the other senior leaders in their communities.

Senior leaders need effective crisis education that will enable them to realistically assess potential risks, map interdependencies, evaluate the effectiveness of existing systems and plans, develop integrated response strategies, and know how they and their colleagues will make decisions in a crisis situation.
