SBR: BOLD class explores crisis managementAndrea Hartzell
The fifth session for the new KASB BOLD program was held in April in Topeka.
The group of 20 administrators from across Kansas spent the first afternoon gaining knowledge and skills on crisis management. Discussions included developing plans for communication during and after a crisis event and the need to consider the long-term effects of stress related to crisis events.
The group spent the next day working on human resource management, including best practices for opening a position; how to handle the application; vetting and interview procedures; and hiring the best fit for the job.
Also included were effective supervision and evaluation strategies and how to handle disciplinary actions and dismissal of employees.
The Business and Operations Leadership Development (BOLD) program is sponsored by KASB Leadership Services and provides training to district-level leaders through a year-long program that includes site visits, special presentations and group discussions
