An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Crisis Leadership and Human Behaviour

Strengthen Your Organisation When It’s Under Pressure

Course Introduction

This Oxford Management Centre Crisis Leadership and Human Behaviour training course encourages leaders to take an emergency response plan and adapt it as new evidence and factors present themselves. When leading through a crisis leaders are forced to think and behave in ways that feel unfamiliar.

Leaders must develop a robust application of the skills and practices incorporated in the five key disciplines: (1) Strategic Leadership and Innovation; (2) Team Building & Management; (3) Communication Skills; (4) Time Management, Prioritization & Results Orientation: (5) Problem Solving & Decision Making. For each discipline, you will learn everything from key theories to best practice from some of the world's most influential companies to develop empowering perceptions that will help you achieve success.

  • How the ‘human factor’ impacts on a crisis
