The future is now.

For many (people and businesses) adapting to the pandemic and adopting new best practices has not come easy. There are both internal and external influences to every business. Unfortunately, COVID 19 is both, which is why the impact has been so wide spread to every industry and every type of business.

When we consider the agility of a business to respond to influences, it is not the size of the business, but the preparedness and ability of the business to adapt and evolve quickly.

We have all become very aware of the term “sustainability”; economic, environmental and social impact. This is not a term limited to natural resources, it’s also a very appropriate term to describe the “health” of a business. Economic – is a business’s cash flow, supply and demand. Environmental – is the industry and external influences that impact our business environment. And, Social – is our people within the business and the community(s) we serve.

As we navigate through and beyond the pandemic and look to the “new normal” – whatever that may be … the businesses that have been agile, adapted and evolved will be the ones that survive and thrive.

Business Gratitude

We’re often reminded to express gratitude in our personal life, but what about expressing gratitude in our professional life?

Gratitude manifests positive energy, lifts the spirit and is contagious. Whether it’s taking a moment to pause and reflect, or expressing it to others in words or a note. Gratitude daily … not just at Christmas, greatly improves business health at every level.

Gratitude is on my mind as I relaunch my consulting business. I have had an exceptional career working with extraordinary people in diverse industries and cultures. My business has evolved over the years as has my business acumen, and I am grateful every day to the people, businesses and experiences I’ve had that bring me to this moment in time.

I’m looking forward to this next chapter; who I will help, what I will learn, and how we can all prosper from sharing knowledge, experience and gratitude.

Find time every day to express gratitude to those you work with, to yourself for lessons learned and for your achievements great and small both personally and professionally.

Let’s make gratitude the next pandemic and we will all enjoy a culture of positivity, wellness and business prosperity.

With gratitude, Janice.
