The future may still be unpredictable, but nowadays, disasters are not. We live in a time of constant, consistent catastrophe, where things more often go wrong than they go right. So why do we still fumble when disaster hits? Why are we always one step behind? In The Devil Never Sleeps: Learning to Live in an Age of Disasters, Juliette Kayyem, faculty chair of the Homeland Security and Security and Global Health Projects at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, lays the groundwork for a new approach to dealing with disasters.
Presenting the basic themes of crisis management, Prof. Kayyem offers a new framework to anticipate the “devil’s” inevitable return, highlighting the leadership deficiencies organizations need to overcome and the forward-thinking they need to harness to navigate crises effectively and efficiently. Filled with personal anecdotes and real-life examples from natural disasters like the California wildfires to man-made ones like the Boeing 737 MAX crisis, The Devil Never Sleeps is a guide for governments, businesses, and individuals alike on how to alter our thinking so that we can develop effective strategies in the face of perpetual catastrophe.
Prof. Kayyem is a CNN national security analyst, Pulitzer Prize finalist, and contributor for The Atlantic and Boston’s local NPR station, WGBH.
Prof. Kayyem will be in conversation with Gretchen Rubin, five-time New York Times bestselling author, award-winning podcaster, speaker, and creator of the Four Tendencies framework.
This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
