Community Leadership

Douglas Gillies interviewed Lois Clark McCoy, National Institute for Urban Search & Rescue (NIUSR), and Jim Flysik, The Flyzik Group, a former Senior Advisor to Governor Tom Ridge in the White House Office of Homeland Security and Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the Department of the Treasury. The topic: Community Leadership during Catastrophes—bottom-up organizational design.

Lois and Jim discuss leadership patterns that tend to emerge in a community during an emergency before those who are designated to be "in charge" take their posts. Who's in charge? People don't wait passively for help to arrive. They help each other. They form teams and make life-and-death decisions. How does it work? What needs work?
