We Are Live
As Lenin observed in 1919: “There are decades when nothing happens and there are weeks when decades happen.”
We are living through a major inflection point in history. This means that when “normal life” resumes, the future won’t look or feel much like “the normal” we have been used to.
As businesses deal with the possibility of a sudden stop in their cash flows, the most uncovered are a new generation of organizations that are already struggling to be in business and pay off their loans and salaries. The longer the pandemic lasts, the greater the risk that the sharp downturn transforms into a financial crisis worse than the world has ever seen before.
But, as we have witnessed, businesses and entrepreneurs have bounced back in the past from failures and major global crisis. Taking the rough with the smooth and recovering from hardship is a part of every ‘happily ever after’ tale and it’s the mark of a truly great company or leader to face down disaster and rise again.
