As enterprises grapple with the consequences of this pandemic on their business operations, the tendency to rush into normal business resumption is quite high. Not that this is a bad response, but not taking a deeper reflection into what will be the next normal, could make many organizations suffer the #COVID19 effects itself.
As we are witnessing, the bleeding has begun with the pay cuts, layoffs, furloughs, and businesses closing down. Wait a minute, have we soaked this in? Could it be we and our teams are making a rush too early? I think we can soak this in, with a different lens, but a rush for the exit doors (bleeding) may not just be the right ultimate response.
While the cloud may appear dark, the horizons look different to many. I believe that seeing what the horizons look like will help organizations and individuals respond better as we grapple with the full effects of #COVID19. Some of the things that could help us respond better are a good and great bench strength, resilient and excellent technology infrastructure, a leadership that is ready to cede control to a #trusted team with the right competencies and experience, and a #workplace where success and failure are shared collectively, but owned by the #leader. Creating an environment like this or even better will help organizations to #keepmoving, with a greater focus on the #horizon, not the dark clouds of the moment.
Let’s stay strong, we will also beat this.
