Managing Crises

Triumph and Crises are cyclical, our success in business and personal lives depends on how effectively we manage all seasons:
  • There is always a solution to a problem
  • Crises need to be looked at as opportunities
  • Crises should galvanise you to action and stimulate your creative thinking
  • The solution to a problem is often an improvement on the situation that existed before the problem
  • Crises help you break uncreative habits
  • Giving up is the only guaranteed method of losing
  • Solutions to problems will often come from the most unexpected sources
  • In problem situations, keep your eyes and mind wide open and expand the membership of your team
  • It is not over until it is over - and even then it is not over
