Reputation and Crisis Management with Alan Stevens
Andy Lopata's guest in this week's episode of the Connected Leadership Podcast is Alan Stevens, the Media Coach and expert on reputation management. They examine how a leader's reputation inpacts on their organisation. A topical subject in the light of the recent confidence vote in the Prime Minister. Alan is convinced that dialogue and communication are of the utmost importance in crisis management. But, do we allow politicians to be vulnerable, to own up to mistakes? Is it ever too late to repent, to admit you got something wrong? Mistakes are usually forgiven. Slowly, enlightened businesses are moving from 'command and control' to a more inclusive culture emphasising the importance of relationships at all levels.
