"Very soon after the pandemic began, it became apparent that the crisis was causing business leaders great distress. Some were almost paralyzed by the magnitude of the problems.  I wanted to make a contribution to help people deal with this overwhelming situation, and decided that the best way to do that was to write about examples of leaders facing other crises: how they dealt with then, how some successfully overcame the crises, while others failed, and why." – Dr. Eric Flamholtz on the creation of "The Crisis Leadership Playbook".

Two of the country's most respected and celebrated business experts share insights and practical guidance for leaders facing crises like the COVID-19 Pandemic.  The book will focus on several organizations that have successfully and unsuccessfully faced crises and what the leadership decisions were that impacted their outcomes.

This new book provides a "playbook" to help leaders facing crises understand and successfully address crises.  Specific examples of organizations that have experienced a variety of crises are presented and analyzed to help the reader understand different types of organizational crises and how leaders actually dealt with them.  The companies examined include: American Express, Disney, Kodak among others.  From the analysis of these actual case examples, the authors developed a "playbook" that includes key lessons, general principles and tools for successfully leading and managing crises.
