Learn Important Crisis Communication Skills

Students: 740, Price: $19.99

Students: 740, Price:  Paid

Every organization occasionally has a crisis, problems or disasters to manage.  In this course learn more about how to handle press and public relations on such occasions.

Crisis communication is a sub-specialty of the public relations profession that is designed to protect and defend an individual, company, or organization facing a public challenge to its reputation. Communicating during a crisis is one of the most important elements of a workplace crisis. ... Precise, timely and relevant information is critical during any crisis and emergency. It is suggested that crisis communication should be an integral part of an effective communications plan.

In this course, you'll learn the process of preparing your organization to communicate with employees, customers, suppliers, media, and the public at large. We'll cover identifying audiences, assembling a crisis response team, crafting an initial statement, and evaluating your response once the crisis has passed.

Crisis Management, Crisis Planning & Communications

Crisis Planning, Situational Management, Mitigation Strategy and Crisis Comms

Created by David Swinfen - Public Relations Editor, Strategist and Author


Students: 454, Price: $24.99

Students: 454, Price:  Paid

A crisis is any unforeseen event which puts the reputation or operational viability of an organisation or individual at risk. . In any normal SME (Small Medium Enterprise), there should be very few occasions in the company’s entire history where a crisis needs to be mitigated – if the ship is tightly run, anyway.

When a crisis does happen, it is often the result of an independent media organisation publishing something on-line that is either incorrect (to the detriment of you or your company), or an unusual news event has occurred and the media publish something on it (again, typically, on-line first) before you know what’s really going on yourself.

Whilst the first stage in preparing a mitigation strategy is to gauge the potential damage the story may cause, it is best to always consider the worst case scenario and be prepared. For businesses, it is CRUCIAL that every member of your team has pre-prepared messaging to avoid conflicting replies being given to any media organisations that try to pursue the story.

We do this by preparing a holding statement. The introduction to this course presents an overview of crisis conditions and teaches students how to craft and implement an accurate, clear and unambiguous holding statement.

The main core of this course is a special 3-chapter Crisis Management Simulation: Nostromo The Hong Kong Storm, Oil Spill and Effect on Our Company's Operations.

Part A (Green Condition) - In the first part of a three-chapter live crisis management simulation, students will get to grips with a role-play sim where they are serving as the Communications Manager for Nostromo, a fuel oil company that is dealing with an impending typhoon which threatens its business operations in Hong Kong.

Part B (Amber Status) - Events move quickly in our crisis simlulation, as students try to respond to escalating events on the ground, dealing with media enquries whilst responding to the needs of internal employees and customers too.

(Part C (Red Alert) - Events take a turn for the worse as our company's oil tanker experiences damage and local media are chasing us for a crisis response statement. Students learn how to handle a range of challenging situations, including It system difficulties whilst we try and attempt to orchestrate our crisis management strategy.

Crisis Leadership Skills -Smart Thinking for Times of Crisis

Crisis Management- Learn to Lead Yourself, Team, & Organisation Through Times of Crisis & Crisis Proof For the Future

Created by Ross Hardy - Ex Crisis Negotiator / Developing Your Effect and Influence


Students: 245, Price: $89.99

Students: 245, Price:  Paid

Do you want to be the leader that you know you can be? Do you want to lead yourself well in times of crisis? Do you want to lead and develop your team even during challenging times? Do you want to crisis prepare and crisis-proof your project or organisation to thrive through a crisis? Do you want to lead so to combat fear in uncertain times? Do you want to create a culture and an organisation that flourishes even under pressure?

I founded and led a team of Crisis Negotiators in one of the most challenging environments in the world, a cliff top at one of the worlds most notorious suicide spots. This course will equip you with the lessons I learnt working in that high pressure crisis environment whilst developing an organisation which had a world class reputation in its field, so that you can be better prepared for the challenge of leading through a crisis in your organisation, and be better crisis proof and prepared for whatever the future brings.

Smart Thinking For Times of Crisis—Influential Leadership has been called a MUST DO  for any serious leadership team interested in crisis management.

Good crisis management requires effective self, team, and organisational leadership:

Self-leadership In Times of Crisis

Do you know that negative emotions can disrupt your ability to think smartly?

Smart thinking is essential for leaders, and for the teams they lead. In the self-leadership section, I will teach you to re-engage your smart thinking when under pressure. Essential for good leadership.

Team Leadership in Times of Crisis

This course also equips you to re-engage smart thinking in your team.

Imagine this, every time your team are under pressure, it impairs their smart thinking. Whether you are leading a small team, or an entire organisation, this course is for you. If you are leading two or more people, these skills will improve your leadership influence. Utilising Crisis Negotiation Techniques I will equip you with tools to re-engage smart thinking in your team, demonstrate empathy to support them effectively in challenging times, and help them to operate at their best when you need them to.

Organisational Leadership to Crisis Proof and Crisis Prepare

Following on from learning to reengage smart thinking in yourself and your team, this course will then equip you to use those tools to create a stronger and more resilient team, project, or organisation.

I will share with you a Crisis proofing model that I have used to help organisations navigate crises successfully. Using the tools for self and team leadership, your whole team will be better equipped to utilise the crisis proofing and crisis preparing model to successfully navigate the path ahead.

My name is Ross Hardy and I have spent over 20 years in leadership roles. I founded and led an internationally known and respected cliff-edge crisis negotiation team, which has rescued 1000s of people to date.

This course contains many of the skills I learnt and applied to lead myself, a team, and an organisation in such a high-pressure environment, to become the most successful team of its type in the UK.

I now apply my passion as a leadership consultant and coach, to help leaders better influence their world.
