The earlier you embrace the new situation the better for your organization in the long run.
Whatever you can do right now with the resources and options that you have, do it rather than sit and wait until this is over.
We don't know when will this be over.
What we know is that we can control our responses and actions.
We can focus on what is at hand.
We can be patient about how much we can do.
We can rejoice with the blessings that we have.
We are grateful for the love and support we enjoy.
We need to be proactive and optimistic with the situation.
We cannot stop our lives from evolving.
We need to connect and reach out.
If you really think about it, there is no escape room.
We wake up in the morning.
We get ready for home-based work.
We tell ourselves that this is another week.
We can do good. We can be better.
We can be productive and positive In spite of the difficulties.
We get our acts together, focus on what we can accomplish today.
Today and the next few weeks will be very important to scale down the spread.
We live everyday with the conviction and hope that it will pass too.
We will go back to our lives stronger and more resilient as people.
We create a new pattern, a new way of doing, and a new way of thinking that reflect what we need for the moment.
These new scripts are very important to keep us on track and not slide down to getting stuck.
We can overcome!
This time no one wants to feel isolated especially those who are in business.
Some of your suppliers, partners, and clients are hurting at the moment.
This is the time to reach out and tell them you care, you know that there are shared experiences, and you are there to help.
I have been doing that in all of my community members.
Because number one, you are not working or dealing with an organization, you are dealing with people.
People are scared, afraid, and unable to make sense of what is happening.
Provide that support and leverage your mission and resources to have that extra-customer service that they would need at this time.
During crisis time, it is not ethical to be sleazy and capitalizing on someone's pain.
But you need to be present and make the effort to be relevant with results.
Commiserating is good but working with them towards practical solutions is way better!
