How SHARIE Helps During a Crisis: Six Essential Behaviors

Tuesday, August 17

Instructor: Karen Anderson

Natural and human-made disasters provide opportunities for failures (such as loss of life and property) and successes (such as saving lives and making innovations). Tsunamis, hurricanes, disabled ships, cave-ins, pandemics, and other disasters hit without warning. In reviewing several disasters, we will better understand how the six essential behaviors make the difference between failure and success. Companies, communities, and individuals can apply these behaviors to navigate their own crises.
