Leading in a Crisis

Practical principles for navigating a crisis.

As part of our Professional Director Series, this workshop will help you connect with other leaders as you learn about leading in a crisis. This is a challenge for directors at what can be a turning point for an organisation. Find out how to survive and get your business back on course.


This course will give you the knowledge and skills to:

  • define the characteristics of good crisis leadership 
  • define the role of the board in meeting crises
  • apply principles and practical solutions for leading in a crisis
  • understand how to balance crisis leadership with the director’s legal obligations and responsibilities


This interactive workshop is designed and delivered by experienced directors who will provide real-world examples of crisis leadership challenges. You will share experiences and learn from other leaders about the challenges they’ve faced. You will also be given a practical model to help you and your board navigate a crisis while discharging your legal duties.
