Crisis Management: A Guide to School Crises and Action Taken. The Practicing Administrator's Leadership Series.
Herman, Jerry J.
The effect and efficiency with which an administrator manages crises may well determine his or her degree of success in resolving the situation. This book serves as a guideline to help administrators prepare for and respond to a wide variety of crisis situations. Following the introduction titled "Advance Preparation for Crises," five chapters provide information, drawn from actual personal experiences, on the following categories of crises--individual-related, group-related, communication-related, finance-related, administrator's personal crises, and major disasters. The first section of each chapter presents basic information about the topic. The second section asks readers to consider alternative approaches to resolving the crisis and to reflect on the effects of each. The third section describes the actions taken and offers an indepth discussion of the situation. (LMI)
