Leadership & Crisis Management
Whether large or small or somewhere in between, most organizations involved in political competition and the world of public affairs will find themselves thrust into the middle of a crisis. How to manage a crisis and maneuver safely to the other side is a skill that usually cannot be taught—it must be learned. Among the 101 professionals are senior strategists who have had to lead from the front when the going got tough. Presidents, Cabinet Members, political figures and some of the world’s largest corporations have been among the beneficiaries of their expertise.
When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters—one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.
– John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Indianapolis, April 12, 1959
