MBA1994 How to Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste

Not every crisis is avoidable. But almost all have a silver lining.

Today, we reorient your perspective on crises from “avoid and survive” to “expect and take advantage of.”

With examples from our own serious DEFCON moments at WebinarNinja, Omar lays out a few principles you can apply to any crisis. The trick? Going beyond simple survival, and having the foresight to look for opportunity.
