There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 situation has hit the business community hard - but it is all bad news for business?
It depends on the type of business you are in. In times of crisis, the effect of shortages, panic-buying, change of working situations, and financial management can be a weakness for some, but a benefit for others.
Did you know that the severe toilet paper shortages created an unusual demand for bidets, helping a struggling Australian bidet business from closing down this year due to extraordinary demand and unprecedented sales?
The most common human reactions to a crisis are stress and responses can be FREEZE, FLIGHT, or FIGHT.
Unfortunately, for a business owner, the freeze or flight options, and doing nothing will not be the best for the continuity of the business.
If you’re taking the third option - the fight response - and seize the opportunity to use these times for long term good; it’s time to rethink and reorganise your business. It’s time to bunker down and look at what you need to do right now and how you need to reposition your business when the market recovers.
You could look at the current situation as being similar to a raging bushfire; a test to see whether a business is still standing when the flames are extinguished. Maybe it can be a ‘pruning time’ for your business. Time to slow down, to cut back and to reposition the business for growth when the market has made a recovery? It’s time to take control and make plans for the survival of businesses.
It's time to take some positive steps and decide on some actionable strategies for business survival. We’ll help your business to mitigate the impact of the current events and to navigate strategies to tackle these challenging times.
