Crisis Management – Getting the best from everyone (Applying Mission Command)

During a crisis it’s vital that you can get the best from everyone in your team. However, in order to feel in control of the chaos, the natural response of most leaders will be to tighten their grip. This direct form of control is often the wrong response, demoralising team members and inhibiting innovation.

“Mission Command” is a system of leadership which empowers everyone to use their initiative. This approach encourages rapid and appropriate decision making, creating teams which are more robust, responsive and resilient.
