Navigating The Leadership Stage | Lynn Perry Wooten

Lynn Perry Wooten discusses her research in crisis leadership, the glass cliff phenomenon, and “positive deviance” behaviors for managers and organizations.  On crisis leadership, she uses case examples of Chipotle and Boeing to illustrate the different competencies leaders need when navigating a crisis. She then discusses her research into how workforce diversity can serve as a competitive advantage and expands on how underrepresented minority leaders can successfully navigate the “glass cliff” phenomenon, including in the context of NFL head coaching. Finally, she illustrates how leaders and organizations can foster “positive deviant behavior” and resiliency in order to turn a crisis into an opportunity.
