Welcome to episode #059 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Melissa Agnes and Sam Miller
Earlier this week, I published a #crisisready video that discusses the emotional factors that can quickly escalate an incident to crisis-level. Remaining on the topic of emotional impact and the human factors of crisis management and preparedness, I’m excited to be sharing the latest Crisis Intelligence Podcast with you!
I recently had the opportunity to have a conversation with Sam Miller, a psychotherapist with a particular expertise in trauma counselling, and a keen understanding of the psychology of business and the workplace. Within this podcast, Sam and I discuss “the human capital component” that should be factored into your crisis preparedness and crisis response. It’s an interesting and enlightening conversation that will give you the initial tools to explore how to make sure you don’t underestimate the emotional effects of a crisis, as well as how to mitigate the psychological risks that can be an impactful part of your organization’s crisis management.
This episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast discusses:
- The human and emotional factors that should be incorporated into your crisis preparedness and response.
- Three steps you should take to implement the human capital component into your crisis preparedness.
- An important question that should be added to your risk analysis – every time.
- What it means to “normalize emotions” – and leadership’s role and responsibility in doing so.
