Marcel Trachsel, Founder & Partner
The Corona crisis has impressively proven it: The management of crises and emergencies always presents companies with challenges that go far beyond those of everyday life. Anyone who relies solely on their improvisational talent in such a situation is acting recklessly and risks a lasting loss of reputation and trust. In a crisis, the usual behavioral patterns, strategies and resources are not sufficient to cope with it successfully. Preparing for such cases is a core task of responsible leadership. This is why insurance companies and lenders also require their customers to prove that they have an effective crisis management system in place.
What does it look like in your company?
A trained, well-coordinated crisis management team, clearly defined interfaces and processes, and practical tools help to maintain an overview and freedom of action in a crisis situation and to make the right decisions.
Based on our many years of experience, we have developed a checklist that we use in audits of crisis management organizations of companies. This checklist is also suitable for an initial self-audit.
The consultants of int/ext Communications are happy to support you in setting up a crisis management organization tailored to your needs and to prepare it for emergencies in realistic training sessions and exercises.
