First, panic ensues. Then comes paralysis. These are the usual responses of workers and organizations when crisis situations emerge.
Crises are totally unexpected, unknown  and unpredicted. Crisis situations like oil spills, factory explosions, loss of major customers, robbery and crime, sickness or a health pandemic grip us with fear. They threaten our lives, properties and partially cripple or may even force a halt to business operations. These events are not anticipated. They lurk and then can suddenly take us by surprise and pose grave threats to businesses. 
In these conditions, everyone in an organization must possess the necessary critical thinking skills and tools to assess and process the best approaches and responses to address the crisis situation, find solutions and evaluate the impacts of their decisions. The lack of this critical thinking process could lead to more risks and financial impacts to the company.  So how do you bring your organization’s team together and have ALL HANDS ON DECK?
In this webinar, you will learn about :
  • Understanding the impact of an organization’s employees and team leaders’ readiness for crisis response.  
  • Effective crisis response and the critical involvement of mindsets and preparations
  • Learn basic skills in Critical Thinking that apply to Crisis Situations
  • Creating organization-wide awareness about the unknowns and unexpected crisis that could hit the business
  • Case study on crisis responsiveness
