Occasionally there may be situations where you or your company is on the receiving end of negative press. For situations that need careful handling, crisis management skills can be effective in diffusing inflammatory or problematic situations. However, many companies are woefully unprepared for this level of media management until it’s too late. Crisis management training can help key employees be ready for a number of high-pressure scenarios. From ambush attacks from the press to handling interviews under stress, being armed with the correct training means that you can always be fully prepared for any unexpected situations. Interviewers and media representatives employ many different questioning styles from aggressive to flattering. Our experts can help you prepare for toxic situations or uncomfortable media engagements by building skills and resilience. Learning how to handle difficult questions, managing responses, and controlling the conversation are just some of the crisis management skills we teach. Practice sessions across a full range of scenarios and sound bites help with media interview preparation and will help you to stay calm when under extreme pressure. Learn how to handle the toughest situations with challenging role-plays, and discover how to field questions with tact and diplomacy while bridging the conversation back to a positive message.
