3 Business Tips for COVID-19 Recovery
Google “COVID-19 business recovery” and you’ll get 958 million results.
A better, faster solution would be to savor the three, striking observations from Mike Sharrow, President and CEO of C12 , the largest network of Christian CEOs, business owners, and executives throughout the U.S.
Which of these three statements, from a “COVID-19 Executive Briefing” Mike presented on April 23, gets your attention? Which one speaks most directly to your current situation? And why?
- “There will be winners and losers in this new, post-COVID-19 era. We are approaching a 90-day period of June, July and August that will begin to show who was actually building the future, versus who was doing a rattle-and-hum version of the status quo, and who made the wrong choices.”
- “The cost of a bad decision of being on a glorified status quo or failure trajectory is going to be perilous in 90 days. The powerful difference of not just surviving, but being part of the resilient, early-adoption curve players is huge.”
- “There’s too much at stake in the post-recovery world. There are not enough stimulus recovery programs in the world to solve our problems. We have got to build the right solutions, the right companies, the right communities, the right environments that are going to create flourishing cultures together.”
For the full perspective of these three realities and their possible impact on your company, church, or parachurch organization, see the video from the C12 “COVID-19 Executive Briefing.”
One more important tip: Take a look at this eye-opening diagram Mike has created called “The Tulip Tunnel of Uncertainty.” It’s a quick, engaging way to help you and your team determine if your business is living in a glorified status quo, proceeding on a failure trajectory, or progressing on the winning track.
