So why would your group, business, church or club need a Crisis Management Course/Conference anyways:

  1. If you are having issues filling positions, keeping attendees/members or bringing in donations you are in need of Crisis Brand Communication Skills
  2. If you do not currently have a training program for volunteers and staff that walks them through team communication and managing crisis you need training to create a Crisis Management Plan

Who is Izzy Gentry?

Born and raised a Southern Californian pastor's kid I did what most smart people do, I moved to Texas. Over the course of my life, I have served, observed, and learned from some of the most influential leaders across the nation. From pastors kid to political communications director, from editorial creator and broadcast executive, I have been blessed to see the priceless media engaging moments and the humbling disasters of leaders. As I spent a great deal of time being both the collateral damage to horrible leadership and the spearhead to massive growth it has been my privilege to learn, grow, and now share how humans best respond under extreme stress, crisis, and victorious advances. As a Christian, businesswoman, wife, mother, step-mother, pastor's daughter, and sibling I'll share with you just how we get the data that helps us be leaders and not responders.

What are four methods of crisis management?

There are four general methods of crisis management: avoidance, accommodation, confrontation, and compromise.

1. Avoidance: Crisis-proofing or risk management is the practice of taking proactive steps to prevent or minimize the impact of potential crises. This can include creating contingency plans, risk assessments, and establishing protocols for responding to emergencies.

2. Accommodation: In times of crisis, some organizations may choose to change their policies or procedures in order to appease the public or key stakeholders. This can involve making major compromises or concessions, such as reversing longstanding policies or agreeing to investigations.

3. Confrontation: In some cases, organizations may choose to confront the public or stakeholders head-on, defending their actions and refusing to back down. This can be a risky strategy, as it may lead to public backlash and further damage to the organization's reputation.

4. Compromise: A compromise is often seen as the most desirable outcome in a crisis, as it allows both sides to walk away with something they want. This can involve finding a middle ground on contentious issues, or agreeing to a settlement in a legal dispute.

Will you be prepared and proactive or caught off guard and reactive?
