- Build a culture of self-reliance and be ready to hold your course.
- Be bold and find the courage to go against the status quo.
- Lean into your Strategic Plan (or create one if you do not already have one), then modify as needed. Don’t let the pandemic unseat you; use your Value Proposition to your advantage as it’s why you have been successful so far.
- Once you move beyond your initial “fight or flight” reaction, you can identify possibilities for growth. Seize opportunities that focus and align with your overall strategy.
- Murphy’s Law happens, and it’s up to you as a leader to stay collected. If you panic, those around you will panic. Stay calm, and your team will follow.
