DEALING WITH DIFFICULT SITUATIONS TRAINING COURSE
Plan. Be prepared. Respond immediately and calmly. These are the best ways an organization can minimize the negative impact a crisis of any kind — environmental accident, workplace violence, natural disaster, hostile intruder, bomb threat, law-enforcement encounter, government investigation, etc. — can have on its people, operations and reputation. Conversely, a show of panic or taking inappropriate actions can make a bad situation worse and cause irreparable damage to the company.
It is incumbent upon organizations to help employees be prepared via crisis training. Thorough training builds employee confidence in the face of difficult situations and ensures everyone is "on the same page" when it comes to crisis-response strategies.
