Blindsided: A Manager's Guide to Crisis Leadership
A crisis strikes out of the blue, at the time and place least expected. In a word, you’re blindsided. According to Bruce T. Blythe, managing a crisis is an ultimate test of leadership, requiring leaders who inspire loyalty and trust as they rise to the occasion to meet the needs of people. In his new expanded edition of Blindsided: A Manager’s Guide to Crisis Leadership, Blythe shows you what it takes to be an effective and humane strategic crisis leader, a “crisis whisperer.” Blythe pulls up a chair and coaches you with real-world examples of what has worked – and not worked – in 30 years of experience with hundreds of companies just like yours.
