Description

Much of the published work on disaster response has focused on specific disasters, highlighting what went wrong. Taking a new approach, this book explores using transformation leadership principles to change individuals and entire departments, redefining the way organizations approach disaster preparation and response, and as a consequence, change the mission of the organizations to be collaborative rather than competitive. Rather than focus on replacing people and/or centralizing responsibility, Lester takes readers through a step-by-step process of how to achieve collaboration. He includes implementation plans to make each concept into workable, effective strategies that can be use immediately.
