This course encourages participants to exercise leadership by being a role model, empowering personnel, building effective teams, promoting ethical behaviour, encouraging the exchange of information and making sound decisions to achieve incident response objectives. The successful management of emergencies relies heavily on the ability of senior executives to respond appropriately, communicate effectively and care for those directly and indirectly involved. Effective leadership is the key to showing the watching world that the company has recognised how serious the event is and how the company is responding at the highest level.
