I know you want to say 55. Five + Fifty equals 55, right? Well, not in this case. It was 5 years ago that I started this new business, company and career. And since then I have written 50 blogs (this blog is #50!) So for me, Five + Fifty = Three.
As there are three important factors that helped me get to this day:
Reinvention: Five + fifty also equals reinvention. I always subscribed to the concept of continual improvement, however, these last five years have taught me much about reinvention and this pandemic has certainly accelerated the need for reinvention! Through a significant reinvention this month, we were able to create the first ever virtual workshop for Managing Corporate Change©!
We are seeing reinvention abound during this pandemic. There are so many stories on how folks have reinvented the way they shop, learn, home school, clean, work, socialize. We see companies continue to reinvent what they produce, how they supply what they produce and how they keep employees safe. We hear of small businesses that continue to reinvent how to stay in business, communicate with and sell differently to their customers, and in some cases how they close their business with grace. All this with no playbook. Which leads to #3...
So that's why 5 + 50 = 3. Three important factors that have brought me to this day: Gratitude, Reinvention and Resilience. Which are also 3 key attributes that will help us all not just survive this pandemic, but thrive.
If you are interested in learning new skills that will help you and your folks thrive through change, I am currently offering our Managing Corporate Change© workshop virtually for your organization - using technology that is now working!
