Fundamentals of Crisis Leadership

Daryl D. Black, Author, Speaker, Facilitator

In this session Daryl discusses the basics of leading others in a high stress and high risk environment. He will cover what leadership really is, how to transition from a follower to leader and how to manage your stress and that of your team.

Daryl Black is a sought-after presenter and teacher throughout Canada, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand specializing in leadership and human factors in high risk environments. He has authored the book 1:100 Leadership Solution, How To Be The Leader You Would Want. Through his experience in leadership in these very chaotic times and circumstances some of the questions he tries to answer include how do we communicate effectively, especially with distributed teams? How do we manage stress? How do we build a team from a group that doesn’t know each other? How do we gather and circulate information? How do we bring out the best in ourselves and our team in one of the most challenging times of their lives? Daryl believes the answer to these questions lies in leadership. Not just any leadership but specifically crisis leadership. He recognizes that successful navigation through crisis isn’t about the technical factor, mechanical factor or financial factor. It is, always has been and always will be about the human factor. Crisis it’s not about what is happening; it is about who it is happening to.
