Responding to a Health Crisis
Leadership will require new skills tailored to an environment of urgency, high stakes, and uncertainty.
—Dr. Ron Heifetz, Visiting Professor from Harvard University

There are many approaches to consider and everyone involved must act fast. The leader’s role as a health practitioner varies depending on the situation. Whether you are an administrator of a hospital or a director of the public health department, your role is crucial.
