The crisis manager’s goal is not only to stop the crisis development in the company, but, as a further step, to achieve the fundamental turnover in its development leading to a successful solution. Crisis management requires completely different managerial competencies from those used in “standard” periods as time pressure is a negative factor aggravating the situation and in addition to that, resources are reduced calling for stimulation. A crisis manager should motivate both himself and the staff and it is he who is expected to be creative even under pressure.Keywords:company crisis, crisis management, turnover, managerial competencies
