Crisis Management

Grainne Suter observes participants as they have a discussion on a training courseWhen a crisis hits your organisation, how you manage the response is the biggest factor in determining the eventual outcome. Whether the crisis was brought on yourself, or if you were merely an innocent bystander swept up in events, the right reaction can save time, goodwill and money.

Midas can help your team to make plans for how you would respond in the event of a crisis. We can ensure that everyone in your organisation understands the role they have to play when a crisis happens, from the Chief Executive to the part time intern.

We often provide crisis management workshops for groups of participants that have similar levels of seniority. For example, it is often helpful for Senior Managers to be trained in one workshop and then Junior Managers to be trained together at a different time. Talk to us about your organisation's structure and needs and we can advise you on how best to structure your event.

These are topics that we may include in a Crisis Management training course:

  • Planning for different types of crisis situations
  • Developing a Crisis Action Plan
  • Identifying your Crisis Management Team
  • How to prepare your organisation for a crisis
  • Understand how different people might respond in a crisis
  • Getting your message across internally and externally
  • Managing a crisis in the media spotlight
  • Developing and holding a line in the media
  • When to apologise, when to explain
  • Practicing the verbal skills to keep on message
  • Avoiding a panic response
  • Understanding when and how to respond to attacks in the media
  • Considering the danger posed by 'helpful' journalists
  • After the crisis: preparing your Business Recovery Plan
