UNHCR | Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) | Jun 2005
InterWorks designed and developed an Emergency Team Leadership Programmed in response to an IASC assessment. The assessment identified the need for enhanced emergency team leadership based on a number of competencies which contribute to one’s optimal performance as an emergency team leader.
The purpose of the ETLP is to foster effective, efficient and professional team leadership in humanitarian emergency settings by improving the team leadership competencies of participants in their roles as emergency team leaders. By participating fully in this programme, participants gain greater self‐awareness as an emergency team leader and refine skills which will help them build, influence and lead a team which is cohesive, effective and dedicated to performing at its best. At the request of and in close consultation with the IASC, UNHCR served as the institutional home for the ETLP by facilitating the tendering, overseeing the design and ensuring the delivery of the learning programme.
