In this Business English Pod lesson, we’ll see how important it is to strategize and plan when you’re handling a crisis.
Any crisis is a test of business strength. To be more specific, it’s a test of people in business. There’s nothing like a crisis to show us who can handle the pressure and who will crack. Can your business come through a crisis well? Do you have people with the right leadership skills anddecision-making abilities to handle the crisis successfully? Let’s see how our team handles things.
Our last episode was about taking control in a crisis. We heard Sandy and Mike report a factory accident to their boss Frank. Frank handled that early part of the crisis well. He calmed his employees down, gave them clear orders, and reassured them.
上节课说到控制危机。Sandy 和 Mike向他们的老板Frank汇报工厂事故。 Frank处理了危机的前半部分。他让员工冷静下来，给出明确的命令，并消除他们的顾虑。
