Your team screwed up. Should you take the blame? What are the consequences?
Ethical mistakes made by the junior staff at FEMA came at a personal cost to Pat Philbin, APR, former director of external affairs. A boss with character, Philbin took responsibility for the mistake rather than pointing fingers.
Now president of Crisis1, LLC, a crisis and risk management, program management and communication consultancy, Philbin offers his personal experience and professional expertise on how public relations professionals can help protect and defend their organizations and themselves against unethical conduct charges whether unintended, true or publicly misperceived.
