A companion through the chaos: Leading in disaster recovery

This companion is about leadership in disaster recovery.
Recovering from a disaster is a deeply human event – it requires us to reach deep inside of ourselves and bring to others the best of who we can be. It’s painful, tiring, rewarding and meaningful. The responsibility can be heavy and at times you may feel alone. This is your companion through chaos that will connect you with over 100 other people who have walked in similar shoes.

In recovery you have to run the 'laugh gauntlet' - running your ideas past people who think you're nuts.
