In an ever-changing world, crises can arise from a variety of external sources, such as the loss of a key supplier, a natural disaster or the collapse of a strategic market.
As we have seen with COVID-19 and recent conflicts, companies are exposed to a multitude of risks, both internal and external. Recent events have highlighted the sensitivity and complexity of crisis management, which can have a lasting impact on an entity’s image and assets. Today, it is essential to prepare for crisis management, because crises not only affect others, but can also affect any organization.
In order to face these challenges, it is crucial to be prepared for unexpected events. Different solutions are available to you, such as training, coaching (which we propose) or the intervention of a speaker specialized in crisis management. A conference led by an expert in this field will allow employees to share proven tools and methods adapted to any company. Many themes can be addressed at these conferences.
Crisis management: an essential approach
The first step is to instill a risk culture within the company. This risk culture requires education and awareness of the existence of potential risks. When employees, citizens, leaders and decision-makers are informed, they actively participate in crisis prevention and respond more effectively when a crisis occurs.
Anticipation is also a key element of crisis management. It is essential to detect upstream situations and signals that could affect the health of the company, and to take the necessary measures to avoid a major impact. The implementation of monitoring indicators makes it possible to monitor the financial health of the company, that of suppliers and to stay on the lookout for technological advances, in order to act upstream in case of emerging risks.
