Bruce T. Blythe counsels these Five Guiding Crisis Leadership Principles in his landmark book, BLINDSIDED: A Manager’s Guide to Crisis Leadership.
Your organization may want to add to this list. For example, if you are in an industry that can cause environmental damage, protection of the environment may also be one of your guiding principles during crisis response. In a pharmaceutical company that conducts testing on laboratory animals, your guiding principle may be to endorse animal rights laws.
In any case, guiding principles for crisis response that are established prior to your next critical incident can be a crisis leadership roadmap throughout the organization for strategic crisis decision-making. Following these five principles can help crisis managers overcome unrecognized character flaws that can emerge when blame, chaos, high-consequence threat, and other stress-inducing situations are involved.
Crisis management may be defined as the exercise of common sense at lightning speed. Importantly, the effectiveness of crisis communication during the hours, days, and weeks it takes to resolve and recover from an event will prove essential to preserving the reputation, credibility, and morale of your organization.
My years of experience and observation of crisis response have made it abundantly clear that every business and organization is vulnerable to mistakes, mishaps, surprise events, and human error. We are all vulnerable! However, experience also demonstrates that it is a prudent organization that has studied its vulnerabilities, identified those that present the greatest risk, and gets ready with what it must do and say to respond quickly and effectively in the face of a crisis.

How Do You Start Up and Manage YOUR Business Continuity Project?
Find out NOW with your FREE Chapter!
If your organization is starting out on Business Continuity Management, the enormity of the tasks that lie ahead of you can seem overwhelming. That is why it is crucially important to get the scope right, to set realistic limits for the early projects, and to put these within an overall program that will eventually lead to an integrated, comprehensive approach to protect the total assets of the enterprise. The only way to eat the Business Continuity elephant is “a bite at a time.”
This FREE chapter shows how to prepare and manage YOUR business continuity project.
Adaptive Business Continuity may deliver value 11 to 18 times faster than traditional BC practices.
By staying with Traditional Business Continuity practices that date back to IBM mainframes and Y2K, practices that have yet to catch up to Lean, Six Sigma, Agile, Management 3.0, and the nature of life in 2018, you are significantly limiting your potential as a BC professional.
An approach that empowered you to be twice or three times more efficient in your professional role would most most certainly warrant some consideration — one that offered ELEVEN times more productivity, eleven times more value for your efforts, demands attention.
