Wayne Patrick is a serial tech entrepreneur who shares the hard lessons learned from 2008’s Great Recession when his world fell apart on a Monday. Sound familiar? Use his processes for transparency and problem solving to support your team and business during this economic recovery.
CEO Mike Sipple shares how every mid-level leader is an inspiration, including you! It might not feel that way sometimes.
Good leaders have visions that they guide their teams toward. Great leaders create plans to make that vision a reality. Inspirational leaders know that great learning still happens when the plan doesn’t go according to plan.
Only a year like 2020 could bring this kind of stress and decision fatigue for your team. It’s been a year of hard decision making. And it’s been a time of focus, re-calibration, and immense opportunity.
Too many teams and team members have tried to power through, vs. power up with resilience. Get ready for future years to require a new kind of business resilience.
There is no “new normal” or “next normal” coming. If you’re waiting for this, you’ll be waiting at least 2 years. You, your team, and your business won’t last that long.
Instead we need to be doing “what works right now.” You need a mindset, tools, and actions that allow you to stretch, adapt, be creative and open minded, and continue to thrive despite the difficulties around you.
The near future remains more uncertain than ever and chances are you and your team will be tried in new ways. Remember that last time you drove through dense fog where you barely see past your headlights? You slowed down, you get kept moving, you stayed alert, but gripped the wheel pretty tight.
Resilience is the mindset that will keep you progressing through the fog: to trust your headlights and the road, to keep moving, and to find the path as you travel it.
