We live in an unpredictable world. For school and district leaders, that means having to manage and lead through all kinds of challenging circumstances, often on a moment’s notice. Safety incidents. Budget shortfalls. Personnel issues. Weather disasters. Transportation problems. Facilities troubles. Any of these can derail a normal day, or week, or longer.
How prepared are you and your team to lead effectively through unexpected incidents, crises, and controversies? Are you skilled in convening the right people, crafting effective messages, and communicating deftly with key stakeholders?
Even when you’re caught off guard, you don’t have to be caught flat-footed. When crisis strikes, your staff and the students and families you serve look to you for leadership, action, and reassurance.
We can help.
Chris Horan leads customized workshops for school and district leaders in communicating effectively before, during, and after a crisis. We’ll engage your team in hands-on activities to practice navigating through various scenarios. We’ll help you avoid communication breakdowns between schools and central offices. You’ll learn practical tips to work with the media, avoid missteps, keep stakeholders informed, manage social media firestorms, and deliver a consistent, compelling message throughout challenging situations.
