The findings of this study suggest that there appears to be some disparity among managers in their perceptions to the degree of the effectiveness of their CEO in leading organizational natural disaster preparedness. In this regard, there appears to be agreement among managers that their leadership has been effective in putting into place practices to assess current risks and to have a back-up infrastructure in place to resume operations quickly once a natural disaster hits. However, they generally disagree that their organizations are prepared to support the individual needs of employees and their families during a natural disaster.
