Crisis leadership versus leadership in crisis

Saul B. Wilen, MD

Abstract


Effective leadership must already be in place when a crisis occurs. Leadership must be able to function during the crisis and effectively bring it to resolution so that recovery can begin and proceed as successfully as possible.
The existing challenges reinforce the need for leadership that can operate on multiple planes. Competence, planning, and problem-solving abilities form the basis for determining a leader’s success. Innovation, decision making, a prevention orientation, risk taking, and risk management must all be part of the leadership skills package.
