Crisis and the Media — Communications Coaching When You’re Under Fire
How do crises play themselves out across different media? Are there distinct best practices to mitigate negative print, online, and television publicity?
With modern communications technology, it is essential to understand the strengths and dangers of exposure across the different media.
The Newman Group’s crisis communications coaching will teach you to carry yourself with composure and to project assurance. Through our carefully crafted and personalized crisis media training, you’ll develop the skills to:
- Respond to print, television, radio, and online critique. You’ll practice what to say, and equally importantly, what not to say.
- Avoid questions you don’t have good answers to without inviting wild speculation and worst case scenario images.
- Move through an inflamed media situation quickly.
- Build public trust through effective media management.
When you find yourself in an emergency situation, you’ll want to know that you’ve had the media crisis communications training that will enable you to think clearly, manage the media, and respond with professionalism, perspective, and sensitivity towards all parties involved.
