Leading in a Crisis

learn-leadWSJ recently carried an article, Seven Lessons for Leading in a Crisis. Here’s my short version, which is consistent with the advice I’m sharing with clients every day and sharing during public speaking events.

  1. Get real!
  2. Get rid of the rose-colored glasses.
  3. Build cash (maybe next time).
  4. Be transparent; get everyone to chip in to help
  5. Sacrifice starts at the top
  6. Don’t waste the fresh opportunities you have
  7. Be aggressive in the marketplace
