Through assessment task one, you will explore the concept of leadership in emergency and disaster management. In particular, this assessment task asks you to engage with contemporary leadership theories and styles, plus management approaches and then relate those to the emergency or disaster management context in which you are located or collaborate with.
To set the scene, firstly, you will identify and provide an overview of the emergency or disaster management context in which you are engaged in or collaborate with.
