A celebrated historian at the Harvard Business School, Nancy Koehn holds the James E. Robison chair of business administration. Her research focuses on crisis leadership and how leaders and their teams rise to the challenges of high-stakes situations.
Her most recent book, “Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times” was a 2017 Wall Street Journal bestseller. This gripping historical narrative spotlights five masters of crisis, including President Abraham Lincoln and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. Koehn identifies what today’s leaders from a range of organizations and pursuits can learn from these extraordinary stories.
A dynamic presenter, Koehn has spoken at the prestigious World Economic Forum in Davos and the Aspen Ideas Festival, among other venues. Audiences around the world have responded to her vision for courageous, resilient leadership at a moment when organizations must manage change and help employees perform at their best.
A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Stanford University, Koehn earned a Master of Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government before completing her master’s degree and doctorate in history at Harvard.
