'Rise More Rapidly: How to choose where to focus your effort next'

By now your initial response to COVID-19 should be complete: urgent cash flow analyses, workforce adjustments, repurposed products and services, and a shift to digital. However, a disconcerting number of businesses are unclear about what their next move should be, and even how to decide. The Bank of England is seeing an uneven recovery – a “very fast” pick-up in consumption but “weak” investment by businesses. As we all adapt to a post-COVID world and the variable relaxation of restrictions, you must continue to run your business reliably and efficiently, and change it rapidly and effectively. Don’t follow other companies though; their circumstances are as unique as yours, and following keeps your people from learning how to adapt and then get used to a new operating model. But how to choose where to focus your effort next that will help you to rise more rapidly?

This practical webinar is aimed at helping you to focus on what matters to you and make purposeful projections and initiate purposeful action. First Steve will explain the need to focus – to confirm or set your direction, choose tactics and make projections with purpose. Through two hands-on exercises, Steve will share straightforward tools to help you choose what to do next and align your team to act. Then Robert will explain how to turn action into achievement, sharing some true stories on leadership, treating people right, and doing the right things right from his upcoming book that are relevant all the time and might help get you there.
