We face challenges. The world has changed, and how we respond is important. Intrinsically we know this to be true. There's part of us that knows we have an opportunity to make changes in our business, and actually balance our lives a bit.
Covid has changed our workplaces. It's forced us to adapt the way we work, the tools we use to work, how we collaborate with our colleagues, and even the way we serve our customers. For many of us, there just aren't as many customers either. Business is difficult, and especially when we face economic uncertainty.
It can be uncomfortable to confront, as we don't like the uncertainty, we might be anxious about our future, and it might seem that there's so much outside of our control.
In corporate speak; "we are facing headwinds".
It's time to click it down a gear or two and make the pedaling a bit easier. You can't change the wind, but there are other choices. You can react, rebuild, or retreat.
We are seeing all of our clients facing these choices at the moment. It can feel lonely, but actually many people are asking the same questions, facing similar dilemmas, and looking for the right gear. That's why we have started a webinar series. You're welcome to join the conversation with our H Agent's and other business owners who are also working their way through change.
Our advice to business owners is to turn off the news, block out the complainers, analyse your business strengths, make the time to think deeply about what you'd like to achieve for (and from) your business, and find people who can help you rather than judge you.
An H Agent can help you find your right gear. We're working beside our clients to:
The winds will change, and one day there will be tail winds. How we respond now will set how fast we can go when the winds turn. Now it's time to face the uncertainty and deal with it on our own terms. It starts with you.
H Agents write about the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship and managing people.
