Strategic Leadership for Humanitarian SecurityBusiness Management Skills for Humanitarian NGO Security Professionals
The complexity of the humanitarian arena requires that Security Professionals of non-profits be adaptive, ambiguity-tolerant and creative, be able to lead change, build and work in teams, communicate complex ideas to win support, and have strong analytic skills. They also need to act quickly, often with incomplete information and with the big picture in mind. Solid project management skills, from developing strategic business plans to implementation with very limited time and resources, are moreover crucial in the non-profit arena.
The Strategic Leadership for Humanitarian Security program aims to equip NGO Security Professionals with management skills necessary to reach even greater heights in the non-profit space. This unique program, initiated and designed together with European Interagency Security Forum (EISF), brings together business and non-profit learning, thereby broadening horizons and maximizing the benefits for humanitarian executives.
