Custom Coaching Program Deliverables

While each individual organization’s objectives are unique, the purpose of this program is to help you hone your skills and strengthen your capabilities to thrive through 2020 and beyond. Some examples of the deliverables you will walk away with at the end of this program, include:

  1. A scalable Crisis Ready® Governance Model that ensures each stakeholder group has a representative at the decision-making table, clearly establishes team roles, responsibilities and oversight, and seamlessly integrates into the governance structure of the organization.
  2. Identification and a deep understanding of the most likely high-impact risks that the organization is most prone or susceptible to—through the many challenges of 2020 and beyond.
  3. Established protocols and processes for internal escalation of an incident and effective, real-time cross-functional response.
  4. Communication strategies that detail everything from strategy of communication by the stakeholder group (i.e., proactive vs. reactive, etc.), a means of primary and secondary communication, an understanding of how to effectively anticipate and overcome emotional escalation, and draft messaging to be finalized and leveraged in the midst of a breaking crisis.
  5. Skilled team members who are trained and empowered to quickly identify, assess, and respond to a potential risk in a way that quickly de-escalates the situation, mitigates material impact, all while finding opportunities for strengthening relationships and brand equity in the process.

With these 5 elements in place, a real-time crisis can be transformed into a real-time opportunity.

The 1:1 kick-off call will discuss which areas of your crisis readiness will be most beneficial as your areas of focus throughout the 6-month program.
