In crisis management it is sometimes important to reach out to community leaders and politicians.
Getting your local MP onside or keeping the local council informed can be an important tactic when managing a crisis especially if it involves redundancies or factory closures.
When deciding to inform politicians, it is vital to remember that their agenda might not be the same as yours.
Some politicians, for instance, may see it as an opportunity to enhance their profile.
If you are nervous about the intentions of your local politicians, don’t say anything that you don’t want in the public domain until a trusted relationship is in place.
