CRISIS MANAGEMENT LEADERSHIP

Introduction

We live in a volatile, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity world and leaders and organizations alike must learn to embrace it. When the unexpected happens, it is too late to make the crisis management plans there and then.

No one can fully prevent incidents from happening, but with well-structured preparedness you can limit the damage, take care of those involved and attempt to limit the impact on your organization. This program outlines an approach and the ways of thinking to be embraced in order to ride the wave and not end up swirling in the surf. This program helps to ensure your organization has the appropriate crisis and contingency plans/people, communications and media management in place, so that these can be activated effectively and calmly as soon as a crisis occurs.

Is your organization prepared for the more extreme, unusual and infrequent occurrences that threaten your staff and operations including fires, explosions, terrorist activities (such as bomb threats and suspect packages), storm damage, product contamination, customer accusations and of course pandemics?
