Crisis Leadership

To recap, in a crisis:

1. Events are unfolding more quickly than you can imagine.

2. Lives and fortunes are at stake.

3. You feel a loss of control.

4. You are frightened.

A crisis is the biggest test you will face.

Leading in a Crisis

There are two rules to follow in a crisis. Rule number one is this: Protect other people first – customers, employees and citizens. Not your shareholders or yourself. Protect the public and your customers, and the shareholders will follow. Why? Because the long-term reputation and goodwill of your organization are more important than any short-term risk to shareholder value or your own job security.
