Program Description

A crisis can threaten the existence of any company; yet, a Crisis Prevention and Management guide can help you prevent or respond quickly to any problem and turn it into an opportunity!

This program gives you a clearer idea about the different types of crises, their sources, how to identify, prevent, manage, handle, and evaluate them. It will help you develop the skills to anticipate potential crises, set the suitable plan and quickly locate appropriate solutions. 

The highlight of the Crisis Prevention and Management program is that it prepares you: the boss, the manager, the crisis management team, the media personnel, the spokesperson, the regular employee, etc., to perfectly communicate or apply communication strategies throughout this process. 

Preventing or responding directly to any problem is extremely vital, but the last part of this program shows you that evaluating the crisis and learning from this experience is as important as any other step in crisis management. Hence, you will learn how to mark the end of the issue, document how you responded to it, assess and learn from this lesson. 

Learning from this program will make you turn every small issue to your advantage and will, definitely, lead to an image boost.
