Crisis management – Navigating the storm Course

March 11 - March 22

Crisis management – Navigating the storm Training/Workshop

Unexpected events occur in our daily environment. This interactive and participative training course will demonstrate that it is possible for an organization to plan for those ‘Unexpected Challenges’. It covers the best practices and the proven way of successfully dealing with a crisis. This training course will constructively help delegates to develop those essential crisis management skills and reveal how to effectively use advanced techniques that will improve leadership performance at that critical time.

Delegates will gain tangible skills with up-to-date case studies and exercises to reinforce key learning points for immediate implementation at their workplaces. Your organization must be prepared; without delay it needs to identify all potential vulnerabilities, map out the possible crisis scenarios and mitigate shortcomings.
