Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The devastation of hurricanes Katrina and Rita demonstrates the need for businesses large and small to understand how to weather a crisis situation without being sunk.

Plan For Tomorrow, But Take Action For Today

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Forward-thinking business leaders spend considerable time, energy, and financial resources determining which emerging trends and future developments will shape the business landscape. Looking to the future is both wise and necessary to keep a business on track and avoid disaster. As Jeremiah wrote regarding Jerusalem, "She did not consider her future, therefore she has fallen astonishingly" (Lamentations 1:9, NASB). However, the bigger questions for most businesses are how to assess, understand, and respond to changes that have already occurred in the marketplace, and how to take effective action.

Working at home typically reduces office overhead expenses, shortens your commute, and may increase efficiency, but some people are unable to stay focused at home or their house may not be the best place to locate. Carefully weigh the alternatives to determine whether working at home is right for you.

As hurricane after hurricane took aim at Florida last September, the local Salvation Army was forced to mobilize to full crisis-management status. In a nearby state, a fifteen-store grocery chain was sued for alleged health code violations, and the local media grabbed the story, threatening the future of the stores. Because an unexpected crisis can strike your business like a hurricane, you must be prepared as a leader to manage the crisis effectively, or else your company can be threatened. During a crisis, time is not your friend, so you must be ready to move quickly and decisively.
