I’m currently enjoying a late-summer trip with my golf buddies. The schedule is hectic: early-morning Ryder Cup watching, a morning golf round, lunch-on-the-run, an afternoon golf round, high-calorie/fat dinners, no-limit poker and sports talk into the wee hours. Since playoffs are imminent, Major League Baseball is heavily discussed.
Every year, I contend that the home run is overrated. Heavy debate ensues.
I provide context for my runs-scored argument in this article of The Public Relations Strategist, a quarterly publication of the Public Relations Society of America. The baseball analogy helps me may a point about crisis management: crisis response gets all the attention, but other elements of holistic crisis management also deserve a share of the limelight.
Check out the article and share your thoughts below, please.
Does crisis response get too much attention? Should experts in our industry do a better job of promoting the importance of preparedness and mitigation elements of holistic crisis management? (Also, baseball fans can let me know if you agree/disagree on my point about the overrated home run!)
