Leadership Crisis Management: Understanding the 3-Stages of Crisis Management
Leadership is the most important aspect of an organization's success. Leaders lead their teams daily. They communicate the vision, over and over, and point to milestone achievements as well as small wins. They establish the culture and build a team that supports and protects every aspect of that culture. This is expected from leadership during good times when things are being executed and success is evident. But what happens when a crisis occurs? Organizations struggle while some even fall apart. I have heard it stated that organizations with poor leadership fail quickly during adversity. Some may make it through, however, many will fail. Strong leadership works during the good times to build a foundation for when a crisis occurs. Remember, a crisis may occur at no fault of the organization. Crisis can be driven internally, as well as externally. But how an organization is prepared, and how they respond, can determine not only their survival but also their success.
There are 3-Stages of Leadership Crisis Management, but unfortunately, when a crisis happens, which is Stage #2, most organizations never considered Stage #1 execution, or just gave small consideration to its importance. Therefore, they already start the crisis from behind, with no foundation, and they are in a scramble. This disarray filters into the organization's next moves where they make decisions on the fly, and therefore display poor execution. The organization then goes through different levels of execution plans, which drives a lack of confidence from all staff.
It is our responsibility as leaders to lead, follow, or get out of the way. We must build other leaders to fulfill our vision and drive our culture. We must instill confidence while driving towards success with the belief and ownership from our teams, in which they accept and assume accountability and responsibility. Leadership is influence, as stated by John Maxwell. Leaders build their teams around the influence that followers believe in, and hunger for. Create a team that will not only survive but flourishes as the crisis sunsets.
This book is designed as a high-level overview of the 3-stages of a crisis, that will allow, and challenge leaders to think and evaluate their business through each stage. What improvements needed do they recognize, and what steps can they implement to develop a high-functioning leadership staff that excels through a crisis and creates a culture for long-term success?

I began working for Mark when I was 20 years old and was able to purchase my first home at the age of 23. Thanks to the lifelong skills he taught me I was able to secure a six-figure income-earning career by the time I reached 25. Thanks, Mark!" Joshua Hyde, Millennial Employee

"With Mark’s guidance and leadership, I was able to see past the standards set by your everyday millennial. The standard of entitlement and that the world should be given to us. By following his words and advice every day, I was able to overcome all obstacles and not only obtain a career, but a career where I am able to make close to 6 figures and exceed my employer's expectations year over year. Mark took me under his wing personally and helped mold me into the man I am today, and I am forever grateful. Following in Mark's footsteps as a leader will only bring you the highest results when managing today's millennials." Cody Soulages, Millennial Employee
Mission Vision and Values, Resource Toolkit
Today, many business organizations struggle to survive, grow, and succeed. Their employees lack guidance and direction as well as the leaders who should be leading them. They then struggle to define the answers for correction, or the causes of failure and they go through cycles of constant planning, turnover, and change, not realizing the issue is culture that develops from a lack of establishing or living their mission, vision, and values.
Mission, vision, and values are the very definition of an organization's culture, purpose, and destiny. They are the foundation of the organizations and the driving force of long term success. Great organizations build their mission, vision, and values with the understanding that every decision will point back to, and adhere to, the foundation of their mission, vision, and values. They understand the importance of the mission, vision, and values being driven throughout the organization from the top down, and the bottom up. The Mission, Vision, and Values Resource Tool Kit is designed as a step by step process for an organization to properly conduct and organized rollout demonstrating its importance and gaining employee buy-in.

“I believe mothers make the first impact and play a vital role of our future leaders of tomorrow. My mom was the best leadership coach who chose to be a housewife. She had that luxury back then as in today’s society working mothers, single or married, do an amazing job balancing work and raising and influencing their children. They are simply amazing. This book is not only a testament to my mother and her loving impact she had on me, but to all mothers. They certainly have my respect.”
