The takeover Wednesday of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters provides several crisis management lessons, according to crisis management expert and author Edward Segal.

In a story on Forbes.com where he is a Leadership Strategy contributor, Segal writes, "there are several important crisis management lessons for business leaders when they have to confront crisis situations at their companies or organizations." The lessons include planning for a crisis; preparing for various worst-case scenarios; and communicating effectively, accurately, and frequently with key audiences and stakeholders throughout a crisis.
