More Uncertainty or More Possibility
Another week has passed on the road to what ever the new state of business moving forward becomes. It is not business as usual or normal. The world changed and now we are aligning to this new state of business. This reminds me of a quote.
“If you are positive, you’ll see opportunities instead of obstacles.” – Confucius
I specifically call upon a Chinese philosopher at this time of coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic because of it having some origins in China. Maybe we will know more details in the future regarding its origination and spread but that only drags us back into uncertainty. As the statement indicates, if we focus on the positive we will see the opportunities this pandemic is providing rather than just the negative challenges it presented.
As we go about opening up our businesses again, we need to take what we have learned during the past few weeks and make sure we don’t fall back into the traps of our business which existed previously. We need to focus on a positive culture to recruit, attract and retain top talent. We need to focus on building upon a solid foundation where everyone on the team is valued and allowed to contribute. We need to commit to running our businesses from the numbers not the gut. We need to invest into leadership both for today and the future so that not only does the business operate but it thrives for future generations to come.
No, things are not back to a past normal nor are they at a new level of normal. We are in a traveling state along the path. A journey into bigger, better results based on what we have learned and what we will now do to run our organizations more effectively and efficiently. So be excited about being positive and see what impact it has on the relationship you have both inside your business and outside your organization.
