General Tips for Leaders - Crisis Management

• Anxiety is contagious. Help contain and manage anxiety wit your own behavior.

• Lean into your strengths. Remember, small businesses have tested resiliency and can recover from challenges.

• Show commitment to your people. Your employees look to you for strength and guidance. Demonstrate prudence in your actions and language; lead with calm.

• Work together. Focus on the health and well-being of your people and your communities. Monitor those around you and check-in with employees and loved ones.
