A crash course in changing the world.
During a pandemic, or any global crisis, good communication is key. How do you spread information without creating panic? How can you help people make decisions when there is so much uncertainty? How can you deliver "psychological first aid"?
Harvard's Neiman Foundation for Journalism has created a "Guide to Crisis Communciation During a Pandemic." It's designed for professional journalists -- but it has secrets that every citizen journalist and social innovator can use. Consider it YOUR handbook for making a positive difference during a pandemic.
Explore The five secrets of Crisis Communication and pick one piece of insight that YOU think is most surprising and important. Share it with the network in a blog post or video. Be sure to investigate all five secrets before picking out your favorite insight:
I think the most important factor in managing a crisis communication plan would be how to manage panic during a pandemic. People are crazy and will do whatever they have to do to survive. Being on the other side consists of knowing how to manage these people in a crazy situation and keep them calm and collective the best they can. If this part was left out, there would be choas and anarchy.
In my opinion, the most important secret from the "Guide to Crisis Communciation During a Pandemic" would be learning how to come to terms with uncertainty. Uncertainty in life can be very scary for people to learn to cope with but learning this skill is necessary to do. Once people are able to come to terms with the uncertainties in life they will be better equipped for crisis situations. During a crisis situation if you have not learned how to handle this stress you will not be able to stay calm; therefore, you will not be able to work efficiently and effectively to fix the issues. However, if you have learned to accept uncertainty you will be able to think more clearly during a crisis and will be able to solve the issue in a timely manner.
