Being a corporate business leader can be tough. “Mishandled crises can devastate businesses, lives and livelihoods” (Hemus, 2020) I talk with internationally recognized crisis leadership expert and author, Jonathan Hemus, as we talk about what good leaders need to understand, know, and react, when disasters and crises strike.

We talk about:

1. The challenging risk landscape (health, economies…)

2. Securing executive buy-in

3. What organizations need have – and do – pre-crisis?

4. How to create a Crisis-Resilient Culture

5. The common flaws in crisis response

6. The golden rules for a successful crisis response

7. Michael McCain’s response to the Maple Leaf food crisis, and more.

Psychology and Crisis Management with Gavin Freeman

Join me 1pm EST, May 5, 2022!

Being a leader is hard. It’s even harder during a crisis. I speak with psychologist and author, Gavin Freeman about leadership psychology as it pertains to crisis management. It’s quite insightful and at times, surprising.

We touch on:

1. The Ardent – Dreamworld Incident (Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Outcome?),

2. The mind of the CEO – Upper Echelon of the CEO,

3. Regulatory Theory,

4. Promotional vs Preventative to Performance vs Preventative,

5. Behavioral Agency Theory,

6. Reputation Management,

7. Value = Insight + Tension (This is really interesting and worth a listen), and

8. What can leaders, professionals, and organizations do?

It’s a very interesting talk about psychology and crisis management, and Gavin does a great job of turning theory into something lite and understandable. It become clear quite quickly, that being a leader during a crisis is much more than following a plan. Enjoy!
