Do you know the 6 stages of responses during a crisis? When facing a crisis, most people remain in stages 1-4 of the 6 stages. This is normal and instinctive as people move to protect what is closest to them. There is a silver lining. Every crisis is a catalyst for innovation, creativity, invention, and advancement. This is why leaders have to be in stages 5 and 6. Stages 5 and 6 is where leaders find the opportunities. In this engaging and entertaining course, Mary uses lessons from the Gulf Wars and 9-11 to get us through the painful aspects of our challenges, embrace change, and turn disruption into evolution.
