WASHINGTON, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Emergency responders are trained to make quick decisions that will protect people and save lives when a natural or man-made disaster occurs. This is a skill that comes in handy for anyone running a small business. When an emergency happens, the safety of your employees and clients will depend on your smart decisions and quick action.
In addition to making a disaster preparedness plan, it's also a good idea to find ways to take charge while staying focused on what's important—the well-being of your employees and customers, and a speedy recovery for your business.
Get tips on how to take charge of your company's response to crisis during a free webinar on Wednesday, June 22, hosted by Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
This session is intended for audiences at all levels of an organization, and will draw on lessons from Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, covering the obstacles to proper leadership, and strategies for developing your capacity to be more resilient as leaders.
