Hi, Mindy Flanigan from Inspiring HR here.
Thankfully, we’re getting to the other side of the pandemic. For many of our small business clients and colleagues, there’s a “back to business” attitude. That’s a good thing, but we recommend being proactive.
That’s why we say, “Don’t fear the change. Drive the change.”
What are you doing to help foster a proactive attitude in your business and with your team? Instead of just blowing the dust off the plans you put on hold when the pandemic hit, how might you encourage an even more proactive approach to your business strategy? If there’s one lesson we all learned in 2020, it was to expect the unexpected. That’s why staying agile and proactive is so essential.
Driving the change is an important philosophy for me as a small business owner with expertise in human resource management. That’s why I’ve come to embrace Simon Sinek’s book, “The Infinite Game.”
What’s the bigger vision for the change you seek to create with your company and business? After all, if you’re only playing for short-term results, then you’re missing out on greater growth: for you, your business results, and for your team’s ability to feel connected to a higher sense of purpose in their work.
Your business isn’t stagnant. Your employees don’t want their work to be stagnant: they want to keep growing. So what are you doing to drive the change?
So many of us felt like we had little control during the toughest months of the pandemic. But it’s time to take back control and take back the reigns. And remember: control what you can’t control, and let go of what you can’t.
But try to create an environment where you are driving the change and playing the infinite game. Don’t feel exhausted by finish lines that don’t exist. Instead: innovate. Create a great experience for your clients and your team members. And in this current hot job market, drive the change about how you want to recruit and retain your best talent.
We don’t know what tomorrow may bring. But I do know that a great way to influence a better future is to start today with being intentional about what you want for your work and your life. Drive the change.
