Leading in a crisis

Yesterday I participated in a webinar hosted by the Unconventional Business Network. Rick Boxx, founder and CEO shared three critical factors in leading in a crisis.

Those three factors are people, finances, and communication. These unprecedented times call for business leaders to choose people over profits. In regard to finances, Rick, a former banker, had two key takeaways –first, discover the underlying problems. Take a hard look at your business, he said. And then “seek out creative and collective solutions” Invite your employees into the solution. This requires maturity and a willingness to be vulnerable. Remember, if you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Lastly, he spoke about communication. Speak candidly and promptly to everyone and provide hope filled truth.

“Inspire. Inform. Give a call to action”, he said.

I've worked hard to continue contact with my team and hoping I've pressed that I am concerned about them as people more than pushing for production. They need to know we care and that we are keeping their interest at heart while making business decisions and movements.
