Crisis tests how strong an organization is. It is in the midst of a crisis that you’ll find out the people who are willing to be with you whatever happens. Crisis also reveals the people you can trust and the people who trust you. After all, trust is very important not just to make your organization strong, but to help you go through challenges as well, whatever the result is. To be able to make it through any crisis, your organization must have a high level of trust, which can be achieved by narrowing your focus to a single priority, compressing your plan into short blocks, and maintaining agility.
