About the talk

The next crisis might be here now, or it might be around the corner. In no other time in recent history have leaders in every industry and on every continent grappled with so many changes that have independently and simultaneously undermined their ability to lead.

Join Erika H. James and Lynn Perry Wooten for a virtual fireside chat with Gretchen Spreitzer where they bring decades of world-renowned research on crisis leadership, diversity and inclusion, management strategy, and positive leadership to the table to help leaders better prepare themselves to lead through crises―and for whatever lies around the corner. They’ll discuss tools and frameworks from their book, The Prepared Leader: Emerge from Any Crisis More Resilient Than Before, for addressing and learning from crises so you can navigate through the distinct challenges of today and tomorrow. James and Wooten forcefully argue that the time to prepare is always.
