EMGT 625 - Leadership for Emergency Mgmt
This course analyzes leadership models appropriate for a wide range of emergency management activities. Crisis management leaders must be able to make decisions based on limited information, with customary relations and ways of doing business altered, and the scope of responsibility substantially broadened during a crisis. Leadership for a crisis requires extraordinarily sound critical thinking skills, a large reservoir of intellectual creativity, an ability to remain calm in a chaotic environment, a keen sense of cultural sensitivity toward the many publics affected by a crisis, and other skill sets that are sometimes different from those required to be successful under normal conditions. Using the case study method and scholarly literature on theories of leadership, this course reveals some of the issues that private and public sector emergency managers may face in executing their responsibilities during local, regional, national, or international crises. Prerequisite: Admission to the Emergency Management program. Three semester hours.
