Session 5: Leadership in Times of Crisis and Beyond (1 June @1400 CEST)

This Session, moderated by Doug Dretke, Executive Director, Correctional Management Institute of Texas, Sam Houston State University, will provide an academic perspective with Gerard Seijts’s research on character as a critical element of leadership. He will help us generate an understanding and appreciation for the importance of leader character and candour in business. To quote him, ‘the COVID-19 pandemic has become an important development opportunity for all of us to further craft and develop our own character’. His presentation will be followed by practitioners experience from the USA and Norwegian Correctional Services at managing during crisis. Lastly, ICRC will share their perspective on Leadership during Humanitarian Crises and what we take from those examples for the Prison Services.
