Managing a Crisis

Managing a Crisis 480 480 Margot

Many of the world’s greatest achievers, including entrepreneurs, athletes, and artists, could not have reached their level of success without learning how to stay extremely calm under pressure. They have the ability to develop and maintain a particular state of psychological readiness, a mental preparedness they summon on demand. ​​In a world full of instant communication and worldwide outreach, any business is a tweet away from full-on crisis mode. When the path ahead is uncertain, people turn to leaders to help them gain clarity and a grounded hope for a better future. They want someone with a positive vision, who is confident about tackling the problems we all face yet courageous enough to confront uncomfortable truths and admit what they do not know. Peter Metcalfe, TCP Expert, and Managing Partner at Oliver Wight advise leaders to first collect all the information and figure out how an upcoming crisis is going to impact the organization. Then it’s all about getting the right people in the room and making an informed decision based on the information. #Leadership #Crisis #Success #Communications #Diplomacy
