Crisis communications affects everyone – big and small companies alike. In the past few years, we’ve seen major brands go through a number of crises – from Sea World’s backlash from the movie “Blackfish,” to Chipotle closing some stores due to E.coli concerns, to industry giants like Wells Fargo and their fraudulent accounts scandal.

The thing about crisis communications is it doesn’t matter how big or small your company is, you can’t ignore crisis communication. It affects everyone at some point; the only difference is how it affects everyone.

The oil & gas industry is just one of many examples of what they call “the big crew change.” They are in the second year of a 7-year stretch in which they are losing 50% of their petro-technical professionals to retirement. If losing a key person or a key group of people is what keeps you up at night, there is a solution for that.

Don’t keep corporate knowledge hidden in people’s mobile minds!

A lot has been written about the importance of innovation as it relates to product success. Innovation is important as it relates to intellectual property, product differentiation and sustainable competitive advantage. But just building a better mousetrap does not ensure business success.

Add up all the time wasted doing things that aren’t important in your organization—by you, your direct reports and those reporting to you indirectly. You’ll probably end up with a large number. That number represents your organization’s misalignment.

We once facilitated an executive session with a large company that included three levels of managers. A manager and her direct report volunteered for an exercise you may wish to try in your company.

As CEOs we are generally very skilled at strategic planning or operational implementation. Many are great at recruiting and others are superb at building strong teams or diverse partnerships. All of those are very important. But one of the key pieces that many of us do poorly is managing marginal performances or behavior by other senior leaders or recognized “rising stars” in the organization.
