Having faced umpteen crisis over the years, have developed some thoughts that seem to be consistent to every CRISIS and have helped me overcome most of them

  1. Always assume that the problem is worse than it appears
  2. Always assume there are no secrets in the world & that everyone will eventually find out everything. This is particularly true in the corporate world.
  3. Assume & accept that you and your organization’s handling of the crisis will always be portrayed in the worst possible light
  4. Assume & accept that there will be changes in people & processes. Also no crisis ever ends without[?] blood on the floor. At times it is bound to be yours
  5. Accept that you & your organization will survive, ultimately stronger for what happened, maybe separately!
