Six things to do when you have unexpected crisis situations (bird strikes).
– Dr. Dave Martin, #PROPEL 2020
1. Take control in a time of crisis – leaders take responsibility
Immediately recognize your priorities
Adjustments made at the very beginning of the crisis will determine the eventual outcome.
Leaders take responsibility – often, many of the crisis are not the leader’s fault but ultimately he has to take responsibility.
“Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load.” ~ Galatians 6:4-5
2. Continually assess the situation.
Know your options that are critical to the outcome.
Be flexible, examine and discard options, then choose the best option that puts you in the best possible outcome.
Less emotion – apply more wisdom
Be innovative, examine different industries
Think outside the box
3. Seek advice before you make decisions critical to the outcome.
An effective leader seeks counsel, but the leader makes the ultimate decision.
The leader has the knowledge and wisdom for situation.
4. Communicate with the people around you.
Critical to getting the help you need, analyzing options, and preparing for the outcome.
Without communication, there is no help.
Share the load with others.
Big difference between information and communication:
Information –> giving out
Communication –> getting through
5. Estimate your holding power…financial thrust, physical thrust, mental thrust, emotional thrust.
How far and how long can you remain viable?
Know you church, know yourself.
Take a break; rest and recharge as a leader. “Tired eyes rarely see a bright future.”
6. Expect God to intervene despite how negative the situation can be. God’s power can quickly change the circumstances.
“And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28

4. A person that communicates
