Introduction to Crisis Management - Leading Through Uncertainty is for executives, team leaders, managers, facilitators, and trainers. The course is for anyone who manages crisis teams and wants to ensure their teams are empowered to respond confidently and with purpose in a crisis.

Course Description:

When crisis strikes, organisations that are well prepared and have proactive leadership are best-positioned to navigate through uncertainty.

Since COVID - 19, businesses all over the world are changing how they work and crisis management is a key leadership skill component that needs to adjust to the new normal.

Without face-to-face connection, leaders need to find alternate ways to lead their businesses through the uncertainty of the COVID crisis.

This is placing greater stress on leaders to carry the burden of the response and make big decisions on their own. When your company’s survival is on the line, you can't afford to get this wrong.

In this course, you will learn how to lead your organisation through this uncertainty by developing crisis teams that are situationally aware, highly engaged and empowered to respond seamlessly to this emerging threat.

  • Use tech and commonly available apps for situational awareness and decision support
  • Develop a COVID Response Plan (template provided)
  • Set up your crisis team
  • Activate your crisis teams remotely - Zero Hour

  • Set a clear purpose and mission for your crisis team

“Grant knows his product and is great at getting Senior Mgt onboard with the Organisation Crisis and Emergency Management Systems. The board recognised the value of the Grant's process and utilised it in other areas.”

Shane Apps, Corporate Health, Safety and Training Manager - Peabody Australia

The experience Grant brings to a situation most of us never thought of in our worst nightmare, proved to be pivotal, professional, priceless and I am forever grateful in what he achieved, while others, largely understandably, fell by the wayside.

Rob Longley, GM Geology Sundance Resources at the time of June 19, 2010, when things went bad. Currently MD & CEO, Ardiden Limited

"I found Grant’s training to be highly valuable and incredibly pragmatic. Grant built upon the wisdom and experience of the board and challenged us to explore potential situations and dilemmas - particularly those areas where we may come “unstuck” under the pressure of a crisis. "

Mike Connell, President Bulleen Templestowe Basketball Club
