In a similar way, corporate emergencies demand the same kind of response.

Here are the 5 major SOS Leadership traits to follow

  • Quick Thinking: In situations like natural disasters, the situation demands a quicker plan of action. Like the nearest route to evacuate the space., to locate the nearest safe house, places to hide in case of bomb threats, important documents to carry, carry enough food and water. These are simple measures that should be inclusive in the thought process during emergencies. Quick Thinking abilities in panic situations are difficult even for the most intelligent people or experienced leaders. Having a Crisis Management Plan in place is very important for this. How will Organisation manage in case of natural disasters or man-made? Organisations have fire drills or training in case of an earthquake where individuals are trained how to handle such situations. Even individuals are allowed responsibilities. Getting yourself trained for first aid and CPR will also prepare you for eventualities. This training opens your mind to be always prepared for any events and not panicking. 
  • Negotiations: Negotiations are an option in situations like diluting assets in a corporate world. The negotiations can come to bring mutual solutions for both parties and as a leader, you would save the bigger damage. In a personal crisis, negotiations during a disaster could help you get food or space to live in a safe house 
  • Focus On Minimal Human Loss: Be it a country war or corporate crisis, there would be loss of human life or human jobs. Both these situations have a drastic effect on the lives of many people dependent on that job. Thus, it is an important factor that a leader must consider during planning the remedial action to the emergencies.
  • Responsible Actions: As a leader, you are representing the people. Your actions will have consequences that will affect the lives you are representing. In the case of emergencies, your sole responsibility is to safeguard the interests of the people you are representing. 
  • Empathetic Communication: The people dependent on your leadership role will be terrified with uncertainty. It is your responsibility to give them hope and situational understanding. Empathetic communication will build their faith to overcome the emergency situation.
