About the Event


Quiet Leadership and Crisis Management

In the era of tech startups and LinkedIn Networks, leadership is often seen through a window of thought leaders and vocal decision-makers. Yet often the most effective team leaders are those who run counter to this model, particularly in a major technical crisis.

In this session, we will:

  • Discuss survival bias and recognising its impact on our understanding of leadership.
  • Explore the key principles of building a culture of "Quiet Leadership", which helps create pro-active and inclusive technical teams.
  • Look at real-world examples of quiet leadership in crisis situations.
  • Look at how these things combine into a strategic framework which can used to manage and mitigate a technical crisis

This session will earn 1.5 CPD accreditations
