ORGC 495 - Assignment 4-3

Here on this blog, which was once created long, long ago for a class called Popular Culture. Looking back on these previous posting I noticed one thing in particular, I have grown a lot in two years. This post is not about Popular Culture or how I have grown though. This post is about Module four and how out of control and uncomfortable we all feel in times of crisis.

In times of crisis we all completely lose our heads (except those educated/trained in the field of communication of course). It is hard to just step back, breathe, and take control. This is why we hire communications professionals. Communication professionals take the crisis and figure out a way to smooth things out and get the crisis out to the public without seeming like any investors, sponsors, friends, family, or employees are scared to death of what may happen next. Communications professionals deal with crisis and they help us to understand what is really going on. At first, a crisis always seems like something that is going to destroy your life, but when you stop, take a deep breath, count to ten, and reevaluate the situation, it's not so bad after-all (or am I just saying that because I'm potentially on my way to be a communications professional?).
