Crisis Management by Higher Education Leaders
by Slater, Michael D., Ed.D., Edgewood College, 2017, 95; 10686482
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore crisis management teams’ (CMTs) perceptions of higher education leaders’ competencies in managing crisis situations. It addressed the following research question: What are relationships among CMT members’ perceptions of leadership orientations and perceived competencies of their crisis management leaders? Exploratory data analyses showed the presence of two of Bolman and Deal’s (2013) primary leadership frames: human resource and structural. Analyses also showed relationships among lower reported leadership frame behaviors, crisis preparedness, and crisis-leader ratings. More extensive research on crisis leadership is recommended.
