Crisis Leadership for Boards and Presidents
Anticipating, Managing, and Leading Beyond Pandemics, Disruptions, and Ethical Failures
By Terrence MacTaggart
This new book is a how-to guide designed to enable boards of trustees and presidents to lead their institutions through major crises. Terrence MacTaggart describes the kinds of crises common in the higher ed sector and offers practical advice to boards and leaders on how to anticipate crises before they occur, how to prepare for the unavoidable ones, and how to navigate crises once they appear. And as his use of illustrative cases makes clear—they will inevitably appear. Ultimately, the key takeaway: make the best use of a crisis to build a more alert, sensitive, and resilient board and leadership culture moving forward.
