TRAINING SUMMARY

This program equips you with applicable insights and practical skills for navigating critical moments – before, during and after a crisis strikes. You will go through a hands-on learning journey, grounded in disruption response theory and psychology. You will learn how to better understand and address your own cognitive biases, communicate effectively in turbulent times, restore trust with key stakeholders, draw meaningful conclusions from previous disruptive events, and prepare for potential future setbacks.

Executives at all levels of the organization are employed to manage crises and often do so on a daily basis. Their skills are really tested when they have to manage significant crises that have the potential to disrupt the organization's value creation process, income sources, operating expenses, stock price, competitive position and ongoing business.

The most effective crisis management occurs when potential crises are detected and dealt with quickly--before they can impact the organization's business. crisis management involves dealing with threats before, during, and after they have occurred.

Throughout the program, you will analyze crises of various origins and industries, and will prepare your own Crisis Response plan to help your organization cope in times of uncertainty and bounce back stronger in a post-crisis next normal.
