Many recent high-profile scandals, such as those at Toshiba, Volkswagen, FIFA, and Wells Fargo, have shown the adverse effect of having a poor corporate culture. 

Toshiba’s $1.2 billion profit inflation scandal, which occurred over seven years and came to light last summer, was called “the most damaging event for the brand in the company’s 140-year history” by the outgoing CEO.  The Independent Investigation Committee concluded that “there existed a corporate culture at Toshiba where it was impossible to go against the boss’ will.” In less than six months from the initial announcement, the scandal had wiped roughly $8 billion off Toshiba’s market value.

What if I told you that 60% of all strategic breakthroughs are lost? Conservative estimates suggest that people in upper management spend as much as 50% of their day in meetings, and nationally there are upwards of 25 million meetings every day in the U.S. But for all the action items, to-do’s, and game changing ideas, remarkably little innovation actually occurs.

This is not a typical business article.

I’m not really going to tell you directly that you should be doing the “right thing” in business because it is good for customer relationships, or good for business in the global marketplace, in general---or, even that it will keep you out of trouble. While all of those things are undoubtedly true, you’ve probably heard them many times before. If you haven’t, then you need to pay more attention to how you operate your business, and maybe get some coaching in ethical business practices.

What circumstance is equally irksome to internal staff and external customers, business partners, and shareholders?

The answer:  Being blind-sided by new policies, new circumstances, changes in plans, and so forth. 

If your company does not have a near-term, mid-term, and long-term communications plan, it cannot have a Communications Strategy.

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.
