Who Should be Your Crisis Management Team Leader?

Michael Herrera

Too many times, Crisis Management Team Leaders are picked simply based on their role or position in the organization.   This may or may not be the best decision based on the role the Leader must play.  Consider the traits of a good Crisis Management Team Leader.  Traits of a good Crisis Management Team Leader include:

  • Is Respected and Trusted
  • Is a Good Facilitator
  • Decision Maker
  • Knows the Organization
  • Can Bring Consensus
  • Knows How to Delegate
  • Values Input from All Parties
  • Is Not a Narcissist

Take time to pick solid primary and alternate Crisis Management Team Leaders who will effectively and efficiently lead your teams based on traits that are required in a crisis.
