Crisis Leadership Lessons from USS Cole Bombing
Leadership in the moment of a crisis or emergency where leadership truly matters

Five Lessons in Crisis Leadership from the attack on USS COLE. Matt Harper was a young Lieutenant with 4.5 years in the Navy, when his ship, USS Cole (DDG 67), pulled into the port city of Aden, Yemen. On the morning of 12 October 2000 al Qaeda denoted a small boat filled with over 400 pounds of explosives alongside USS Cole killing 17 Sailors and wounding 37. The attack began a 72 hour ordeal for the remaining crew fought to save their ship under grueling conditions. For Matt, all of his training and experience would be put to the test as he led Sailors into hot, dark and possibly destroyed spaces, tried to dewater engine rooms, stood guard with Marines and Navy Seals and shepherded his division of Sailors through the crisis of their lives. USS Cole is one of the great ships of the modern U.S. Navy and his story is of crisis leadership with lessons for any leader. --------------- With global experience and leadership and a world class education that not only informed but enable critical thinking on any subject, Matt Harper will stimulate any type or size audience and provide a unique real world perspective on crisis leadership. Matt Harper led both brand new young and older experienced Sailors on board USS COLE after a terrorist attack in Aden Yemen. With a calm but steeled determination, needed improvisation and team leadership under extreme stress and life threatening conditions LT Harper was decorated for actions that helped save the ship.
