The recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have shaken the world; and how you react to them can have a profound impact on your life, both at work, and at home.
First and foremost, I urge you to be diligent, prudent, and thoughtful in your interactions with others, make your decisions based on facts, data, and reason, and refer to the CDC Coronavirus Page for up-to-date information.
Clearly, your personal health and the health of your loved ones should be your primary concern. But you also have responsibilities to the people on your team at work, and the customers, clients, and members you serve on a daily basis.
So What About Your Business
The very nature of business makes it extremely dynamic. In a good month, factors change regularly and frequently based on factors not always within our control.
In times of extreme and sudden change, the entire playing field can flip dramatically, as it did in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and the financial crisis in 2008.
What Do We Do Now?
Every situation is unique, and all businesses and associations will have their own guidelines and objectives to consider. But what they all have in common is the presence of new options for response and recovery that wouldn't have existed previously. This was true in 2001; it was true in 2008; and it's true now.
And that's why we're focused right now on creating a series of online learning programs that will address the most pressing challenges facing your business right now, and in the future.
What Are Your Most Pressing Concerns?
To help us provide the most timely and relevant information, we're inviting you to complete a quick 30-second survey so we can identify your most urgent questions and prioritize these programs to provide the best possible value for you and your organization.
As a special thank-you for sharing your input, we'll provide a free registration to all of these online learning programs as we roll them out in the coming weeks.
Just click here right now to complete the brief survey and share your thoughts. And please feel free to share this message with anyone who might benefit from this information.
Lorie and I wish you the best as we all navigate this challenging situation together.
