The “First 15 Minutes” crisis management checklist:

  • focus on the current matter.
  • become the trusted voice in this crisis. Designate a crisis team.
  • monitor in real-time what the media has to say on the topic.
  • get a deeper understanding of the scope of the issue and the vital decisions to be made.
  • prepare an initial 'holding statement' in order to make your opinion pubic. Make sure the statement goes viral fast.
  • document well before speaking publicly. 
  • show humanity, compassion, and concern for any human toll – and mean it. 

  • follow up on everything that you have engaged yourself to fulfill.

Dealing with a crisis increases the risk of taking bad decisions. When times get harder:

  • don't lie, minimize the situation or make jokes regarding the crisis.
  • don't run away from your responsibilities.
  • don't hurry to issue a denial unless you have all the facts.
  • make positive statements when talking about the matter, rather than negative ones.
  • don’t let your fears of liability trump your humanity.
  • don’t speculate until you fully understand the situation.
