Family Liaison For Senior Management & Leaders

Understand a leader’s role when a crisis impacts members of a team


Nobody wants to see a crisis affect their team. But crises do happen. And if they leave a team member unable to speak for themselves, are you prepared to handle what comes next?

It’s important to assign somebody else in an organisation the role of Family Liaison Officer. Nevertheless, the presence of a leader with the skills and understanding to navigate the communication and support process is crucial to the wellbeing of those directly affected, as well as to the rest of the team.

This training will equip managers and leaders with the skills to share bad news with the families and loved ones. It will guide them on the steps they need to take throughout the crisis. And it will help them safeguard the organisation’s reputation when working with family members.
