Emergency Team Leadership Programme Workshop

UNHCR | Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) | Mar 2007

InterWorks conducted the third Emergency Team Leadership Programme (ETLP) workshop in Charmey, Switzerland from 4 to 9 March 2007.

The ETLP is a blended learning programme consisting of a pre-workshop phase with readings, peer feedback and self-assessments, a weeklong face-to-face workshop and a post-workshop learning activity. Themes which anchor the design of the ETLP include “emotional intelligence”, “situational leadership”, “’win-win’ negotiation”, “decision-making in emergencies”, “team care/ trust building in emergencies” and “coaching”. All ETLP learning activities, discussions and presentations are contextualized to reflect humanitarian emergency environments, challenges and scenarios.

The ETLP targets individuals within the IASC network of agencies (at the UN P4 level) who are currently leading teams or offices in the field or who expect to be available for deployment as emergency team leaders within 12 months following the workshop.

I wish I could rate “excellent” for the overall course – Definitely both facilitators were impressive. I learned a lot and this will further enable me to adjust myself, professionally as well as in my personal life. Very well done to both and please do not change.
