Crisis management is the process by which we deal with a major event that threatens to harm our client and his or her career, brand or company. Three elements are common to most definitions of crisis:
(a) a threat to the person
(b) the element of surprise
(c) a short decision time
Public scrutiny can result in a huge negative backlash as well as financial, political, legal and government impact. Crisis management planning deals with providing the best response to a crisis.
The negativity may be a result of something true that you or your client wanted to keep private, or it might be something completely false, but still just as potentially damaging. How you react to the negativity can make all the difference in the future of your career.
There’s nothing like waking up one morning and reading something about you that either isn’t true or isn’t nice. Bad news doesn’t ever come at a good time. Half the time you’re hit by someone you liked or trusted, and that makes it even worse. It’ll hurt and it’ll sting. You’re going to worry who else is reading it and what they’re thinking. You’re going to want to immediately spring into action and do damage control. You want everyone to know your side of the story.
Wait before reacting. You’re going to want to do several things, none of them will be right. Everyone loves a good scandal. They’re going to look for everything they can on this and if you react passionately or suddenly it will only result in more negativity. Don’t run off on the defensive, it only makes the scandal worse. If you react by reacting, it will always come back to haunt you.
