As we observe the scene unfold from Boston we see preparedness at its finest. First responders looking after victims, law enforcement securing the crime scene, officials communicating with the public, the coordination of so many different activities … preparedness saved lives and prevented a chaotic situation from getting out of control.
Let’s learn from this.
My leadership tip for you this week is for you to be prepared for the top 3 – disasters that could strike your business.
Scenarios like … losing your biggest customer – or funding gets cut-off – or a key employee leaves to work for a competitor or worse.
Don’t worry about the things you can’t control but there are 3 – important things to do:
1. Take inventory of the potential disaster scenarios that surround you
2. Review the action steps necessary to avoid the disaster – implement
3. Review the action steps to properly handle the situation if it does strike – practice
You’re probably thinking, who has time for this?
I’m thinking, if you don’t have time now … you will likely have less time when disaster strikes
