Leading in Trying Times
Researchers associated with the Center for Positive
Organizational Scholarship at the Stephen M. Ross School of
Business at the University of Michigan offer the essays
found on this page to those interested in making a positive
difference within their workplace or community in the wake
of trauma and crisis. The web page was originally created in
response to the attacks on New York City in September, 2001.
However, many of the lessons for leadership are applicable
and useful today.
These essays are meant to provide new insights, clarify
thoughts, and foster plans of action for leaders, employees,
and contributors at all levels.
