About the Crisis Leadership Forum

To better understand the leadership dimensions of crisis situations, the Center for Creative Leadership convened a forum with formal and emergent leaders who played a role in Hurricane Katrina. We overlaid this conversation between crisis leaders with the perspectives of discussants with expertise in disaster, terrorism, public health, and leadership. This blog site is intended to continue this conversation.

Crises Top the News in 2007

Six of the top ten news stories of 2007 in TIME Magazine's year-end recap were crises. Three were political: Pakistan, Burma, and Iraq; one was economic: the subprime mortgage crisis; one was corporate: the Chinese product recalls; and one was the shootings at Virginia Tech.

In CNN's reader poll, the top 8 newsmakers were crises, with the Minnesota bridge collapse, California fires, and Iran also on the list.
