Communication Tools for Crisis Situations

Even in the best of times, leadership communication can be challenging: It can be hard to sustain trust, keep the team unified, answer tough questions, and ensure the organization continues to move forward on course. And in times of crisis, those problems can get worse and audiences can get hostile.

In this powerful presentation, communication expert Dean Hyers of SagePresence shares the expertise from his filmmaking background – story structure and confident stage presence – to help you rise above the chaos to keep your thoughts clear, your presence poised, and your words concise so that you can lead the team to calmer waters.

Participants will come away understanding how to:

  • Retain composure and project confidence in difficult times
  • Inspire trust in a nervous team
  • Forge a team plan in times of crisis
  • Respond powerfully to Q&A even when audiences are hostile
