Did that headline sound like an over-the-top story to you? It certainly did to us and we have learned that it is critical to separate what is really going on from the story that we create about it.
The reality is that we live in unprecedented times. Isn’t it amazing how much things have changed in just a few weeks?
Business Continuity Plans and Disaster Recovery Plans that we paid little regard to and used templates to write, never with the expectation that we would be in the position that we are in now, appear to have little real value now.
If ever we needed a demonstration of small business and the role it can play in our communities, it is now!
There is so much uncertainty regarding many industries. You might have already been forced to shut down your business, or may be uncertain about pending shutdowns.
You might be experiencing challenges with supply chain interruption, staff and team performance, social distancing, restrictions on gatherings of people.
It is unlikely that this situation will even begin to improve before a successful vaccination is widely available. This may take 12-18 months! The way that society will work will continue to change dramatically and quickly to manage in the meantime.
Once the widespread threat of pandemic is removed, we will return to a new type of normal. Successful businesses are a central part of successful communities.
Your success will be about how you weather the storm now and then what role you play in the new norm.
If you do it right, you will come out of this into the new normal with better businesses that use technology effectively. This will vastly improve our environmental impact and we will have a stronger society.
Any sense of entitlement will be erased and our younger generations will be part of a stronger society.
Working at home with the kids is a refreshing and enjoyable change right now, however it might become challenging in the coming weeks and months.
We are bringing our combined 40+ years of business experience to bring you a 90-minute interactive webinar. This will be dedicated to small groups of 6 where you will discover new possibilities for your life and your business.
You will leave with a real action plan and an opportunity to have us take a look at your particular situation.
