Managing Your Organization Through a Crisis
Leading Strong in a Time of Crisis webinar series hosted by WittKieffer and CMA

Leading an organization during times of crisis can be overwhelming. Executives must keep things simple through strategies to: Analyze, Involve, and Move and Manage. Analyze: Effective action plans need to be based on information and figuring out the problems that we need to solve, or prevent. Involve: While you may need to make the final call, seek input and buy-in from key stakeholders. Move and manage: After sufficient analysis and involvement, it is important to take timely action, keep the organization moving, and manage the moving parts. Leading in crisis requires an intentional, strategic approach based on the best ideas that social science has to offer.
