Have you been in a position when a crisis occurred and you were the one responsible for leading people through the incident? Have you already faced a challenging emergency and led your people successfully but, realize there was some luck on your side and room for improvement. As a leader, does the topic of emergencies, incidents and crisis cause you anxiety?
For some, the thought of leading people through an emergency incident or crisis is daunting and causes anxiety. During the actual incident, leaders will be challenged, stressed, indecisive, overwhelmed, etc.
I remember the day at work when we received a bomb threat for our building. Not only was this my first dealing with an incident of this magnitude, but this was the first time people were looking to me to lead people through this incident. I didn’t have a method for planing and mostly reacted to problems and issues as they arose. I felt overwhelmed and disorganized. I did not have good accountability of personnel assisting with this incident. As other leadership began to assist, they were asking questions of what I was doing and it made things even more chaotic. People that were assisting were a bit confused about what they needed to do. Some staff were just standing around, waiting for direction.
Ultimately, with a little luck, the incident concluded successfully and by textbook standards, but there was a lot of room for improvement. The improvements could be:
1. More effective and efficient decisions, 2. Better overall accountability of personnel and equipment, 3. Conduct formal briefing to get everyone working toward common goals, 4. Allowing others to provide timely and pertinent input and suggestions, 5. Improving my organization, 6. Increases in my confidence!
