The IASC Emergency Team Leadership Programme (ETLP) enhances the effectiveness of participants in their roles as emergency team leaders in disaster response and humanitarian settings. At the request of the IASC, UNHCR serves as the programme’s administrator and institutional home.
The ETLP focuses on the leader’s emotional intelligence, team leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills in the context of leading diverse and multi-functional disaster and humanitarian response teams. Key themes include leadership self-awareness, situational leadership, influence without authority, win-win negotiation approach, conflict resolution, coaching, delegation and decision-making in emergencies. All ETLP learning activities, discussions and presentations are contextualized to reflect humanitarian emergency environments, challenges and scenarios. Due to the special Covid-19 related circumstances, the topic of leading teams remotely will also be addressed.
Key themes addressed in the programme include “emotional intelligence,” “situational leadership,” “collaborative negotiation,” “decision-making in emergencies,” “team care/trust building” and “coaching.” All ETLP learning activities, discussions and presentations are contextualized to reflect humanitarian emergency environments, challenges and scenarios.
Designed as a blended-learning programme, the ETLP consists of:
- pre-workshop phase with self-assessments, peer feedback and relevant readings
