Your people are your business. This is especially true for contractors where nearly 100% of competitive differentiators are the experience of your people. Now we are faced with lots of unknowns and yet we must act decisively.
Recessions reorder the market and competitive landscape; ensure you earn the place you want. A recession post-COVID is a likely enough scenario that it must be planned for. Projects have been canceled and design professionals are seeing a drop in demand.
It will be impossible for people to fully focus on critical business issues if they aren’t solid personally in mind, body and home. Career and business growth will always be stronger with a stable foundation.
There is no bigger variable in our general health both physical and mental than having a good stable income. As more states go into lock down please make sure leaders at all levels in your company effectively weigh this balance.
Ensure that your business and career thrives in the current COVID shut-down and in the likely post-COVID recession. Be like Batman and build yourself into who you need to be in order to thrive in all situations.
