Program Overview

This executive leadership training program is designed to produce effective leadership across the public (federal, state, and local), private, and non-profit sectors. It includes instruction in a pragmatic, proven approach to leadership in high-stakes, high-pressure situations as well as interactive dialogues, case study discussions, and guest presentations by front line leaders from major events such as the H1N1 pandemic, Deepwater Horizon oil spill, super storm Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombings, and the Ebola outbreak.

As an outcome of participation, officials and executives will be prepared to cross geographic and organizational boundaries to deal with crises as well as day-to-day collaboration and problem-solving. They will be equipped to guide the design of comprehensive, multi-agency, multi-sector and multi-jurisdictional emergency response plans. Participants will become versed in the principles of meta-leadership in order to respond to significant adverse events whether natural or man-made. The program is comprised of a residential opening session and concluding session at Harvard University and a work-related team project that is to be completed between the residential sessions.
