Enhancing Leadership Skills to Deal with Crisis Situations
No matter how good a company’s crisis-management processes, plans, tools and other resources are, they’re only as effective as the senior executives responsible for handling a crisis. Despite this, most crisis preparation work focuses on process, while personal performance factors are often neglected.
This presentation looks at that latter area, and aims to highlight factors that can make senior security executives perform better personally in responding to crisis situations. Glenn Schoen will provide examples from his work with Fortune 500 firms to illustrate select best practices and learning points across a range of different crises and continents. CSOs will get involved in the discussion as well to share their experiences in a closed-door session, and attendees will take away lessons learned, tools and techniques, and fresh insights into how their personal performance can be enhanced during a crisis.

Looking into The Void... What CSOs Can Learn from Wicked Problems and Global Disasters
“Wicked problems” are those problems that are difficult to resolve because they offer unique challenges, aren’t amenable to trial-and-error solutions, and are often symptoms of other problems. Security executives now face more wicked problems than ever before—consider the complexity of the Fukushima tsunami or the chaos caused by Hurricane Sandy—and so they need to expand their thinking to understand and act on threats that cross boundaries and involve multiple agencies or actors. In this presentation, David Rubens will look back at some of the lessons learned from recent major crisis management events, examine some of the emerging threats that senior security executives can expect to face in coming years, and provide CSOs with new ways of thinking about wicked problems and global disasters.
