Why does one crisis management team do better than another... ?


When it comes to managing a crisis (real or simulated), we see clear differences between well-attuned teams who are used working together under difficult circumstances and shifts who view a crisis team as a taskforce and who are hardly geared to one another. 

Irritation and misunderstanding isn’t inconceivable and valuable time is wasted.

The 3 tips!


Assign a number of fixed roles

In every crisis situation, there are a number of essential roles within a crisis management team: the chairman/decision makeradministrative support/minutes secretary and the (crisis) communication manager

They are supported by internal and external experts in accordance with the situation at hand.


Screen your employees’ skills

Ideally, being part of a crisis team involves competence: exerting multiple, complimentary skills as a single team will exponentially improve the end-result. If leadershipfocus,energyinnovative drive and sociability are gathered around the same table, you’re heading in the right direction.


And then it’s all down to regular practice

An exercise doesn’t just focus on roles and skills but the team will also realise that by tacking the situation from various angles of approach, matters can be dealt with more efficiently. A mix of creativityhumanistic and communicative thinking but also by being “the devil’s advocate” are guarantees for an overall approach.
