Legacy of Leadership

The Crisis Leader Interview Project

After I wrote my first book, The Response Leadership Sequence, one of the people that read it and liked it suggested a follow-up.  His idea for me was to bring some of the stories to life by collecting experiences from responders on how they worked their way through a crisis response.

This Crisis Leader Interview Project represents the next step of that vision.

While flying home from a business trip, I brainstormed a list of people that I felt had some inspirational and instructional crisis leadership stories to share and the five questions that I’d like to ask them.

Those five questions all centered around crisis leadership and gratefully, almost everyone I contacted agreed to participate in one form or another.
