Dealing with bad news? Whatever you do, don't go it alone. Do nothing when a crisis occurs and your reputation will surely suffer. But properly managed, a crisis can actually become an opportunity. Draw on extensive "battlefield experience" to get your organization crisis-ready with critical risk assessments and crisis planning. The workshop teaches senior management how to manage perceptions of the situation by communicating properly during the initial hours of a crisis. Specifically, included in the training: --How to recognize and properly identify a crisis --What an effective crisis communication plan contains --What to do, step by step, during the critical initial stages of a crisis --How to respond to the media, officials and the public in today's internet-driven world --Relevant media training fundamentals for your spokespersons and crisis team members. This half-day training will focus exclusively on sessions that incorporate active levels of participant interaction. These sessions provide deep insight into trainees' performance and their ultimate capabilities. Organizations benefit from learning the differing strengths and weaknesses of their potential spokespersons. Time will also be spent revealing news reporters' motivations and the technique they typically utilize during interviews. With this understanding, interviewees gain the confidence and knowledge they need to manage the interview, rather than being managed by it. The training session can also provide a critical "test run" for an organizations's key messages and it's ability to effectively address a specific issue. The "message development" component of our training often results in more focused and persuasive communications.
