Netprofile's Crisis Lab simulation is an intensive drill that improves individual and team crisis communications skills through role play. How does the team react to the various stages of an escalating crisis? Will they settle into their crisis roles – and will they be able to build trust in the face of mounting criticism and pressure?
An organization's success depends on its stakeholders’ trust – the level of which is determined by the way organizational leadership engages with its key stakeholders.
The Crisis Lab coaching session is conducted by Netprofile's experts in media, business, and public affairs. They will brief the team in on crisis communications principles, and the group will go through the takeaways of the simulation together. The exercise will improve the team’s ability to reign in a raging crisis in the traditional and social media, and among stakeholders.
The crisis communication simulation is part of our H72 cyber crisis management concept.

Welcome to the age of stakeholder capitalism! With the advances of communication technology, more and more organizations need to consider a widening array of stakeholder opinions. Audiences expect enterprises to comment on, and even to lead, societal development. On a global scale, numerous successful companies already have an activist leader.
Thought leadership works for the benefit of the organization. It also provides food for thought and increases individual brand value. Many aspire to become a thought leader.

In the next phase, our advisory centers on sprints of individual coaching. The coach’s job is to make themself redundant as the organization and its representative take control of their own destiny.
