It has been said that doing fire drills and other disaster exercises is a time suck, that they interrupt important work and productivity. Time and time again, this has been proven to be wrong. The drills save lives. We can point to Active Shooter drills that saved students a few weeks ago. The example on 9/11, how thousands of lives were saved by Rick Rescorla, who did not take no for an answer. And just this week, a story of a manufacturing plant that had a tornado drill a few weeks ago that saved 150 people when the real thing happened.

    Why Core Values Matter In Business Continuity

    19:07

    Organizational culture is the collective result of how people think and behave, the shared values, and reactions to internal and external stimuli. An organization's culture and its corresponding set of guiding principles (core values) will determine its resilience during a crisis.Leaders and managers must lean on the organization's values to drive performance, especially during challenging times. An organization's values should be the bedrock of why the company exists, how behavioral norms are defined, and how decisions are made to achieve goals and objectives. They must be authentic and relatively specific to resonate with the organization's members.The Business Continuity ShowTwitter - https://bit.ly/3ojEIO2Facebook - https://bit.ly/2Tjqv5HLinkedIn - https://bit.ly/34mXyfzYouTube - https://bit.ly/3mePJyGAwards:https://blog.feedspot.com/business_continuity_podcasts/Sister ShowsEM StudentWeb - https://bit.ly/2Hw0sFxTwitter - https://bit.ly/31z8MeXFacebook - https://bit.ly/3dMlbRPLinkedIn - https://bit.ly/34mXyfzYouTube - https://bit.ly/2FQDhWdEM WeeklyWebsite - https://bit.ly/3jj5ItlTwitter - https://bit.ly/31z8MeXFacebook - https://bit.ly/3dMlbRPLinkedIn - https://bit.ly/34mXyfzYouTube - https://bit.ly/2FQDhWd

    Speaking Truth To Power, Don’t Kill The Expert

    9:11

    We have a problem right now in the United States and it is a lack of trust in experts. And in this environment, when you have political factions that play fast and loose with facts. I have been spending my time looking at issues that we are facing and how to plan for them. However, we have people that do not trust the Expert in the room. Tom Nichols’ book The Death of Expertise the campaign against established knowledge and why it matters explores the question of why do people not trust experts. Why do we not use mass notifications right?The Business Continuity ShowTwitter - https://bit.ly/3ojEIO2Facebook - https://bit.ly/2Tjqv5HLinkedIn - https://bit.ly/34mXyfzYouTube - https://bit.ly/3mePJyGAwards:https://blog.feedspot.com/business_continuity_podcasts/
