Dancing with The Tiger

The guide is directed at the home of the crisis: organisations, businesses, companies, corporations and conglomerates for which crises are inevitable.

Crisis Leadership and Crisis Management

The art of business Crisis Leadership is to be able not only to contain and eliminate crises as they occur, but also to transport the company through to any possible commercial and reputation advantage line exposed by the situation.

The best companies recognize that planning to transform from crises is key to corporate survival and commercial superiority.

Having the competence to return situations to normal is just not enough, in multi-competitor times. Such competency is just Business Continuity or Emergency Management thinking in isolation.

Corporate Governance is the strategic response to risk and Crisis Leadership is your strategic reserve.

What began as Emergency Management and evolved through Disaster Recovery into Business Continuity and Crisis Management has now become Crisis Leadership and Disaster Avoidance.
