ICSB 'Leading in a Healthcare Crisis — Developing a Knowledge Toolkit for Leading Through Uncertain Times' Conference Report Published 
The findings of a virtual conference hosted by GWSB and the International Council for Small Business (ICSB) this summer, “Leading in a Healthcare Crisis — Developing a Knowledge Toolkit for Leading Through Uncertain Times,” have been published and are available in the latest issue of ICSB’s Small Business Horizon.
The event, chaired by Ayman El Tarabishy, Management Department deputy chair, professor of management and ICSB executive director, brought together more than 30 expert guest speakers to explore the challenges facing society from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The conference was designed for GWSB Healthcare MBA students to help them plan and develop leadership skill for crisis situations.
The conference featured two tracks of presentations on a wide variety of topics, ranging from effective leadership at the local level to telemedicine, ad hoc crisis team formation, leading change in medical education, emotional intelligence and more. “Healthcare crises pose unique challenges,” Dr. Tarabishy said. “The tools offered at the conference will provide leaders from the front lines to the meeting rooms with the essential knowledge required to lead soundly through any crisis that may arise.”
