CommLab believes that recessions are game-changers. It’s when companies that execute well move ahead of those who don’t.
We have taken lot of initiatives so that we not only survive the ill effects of recession, but also to grow and attract new business.
One of such initiatives is that the top team attended Dr. Stephen R. Covey program on “Overcoming Challenges in Today’s Times.”
In this piece, I would like to share some of the learning from the training program. The essence of Dr. Covey’s teachings is that if you apply an inside-out approach in handling recession, it can become a boom.
Let’s have a look at the “inside” of ourselves…
4 Dimensions of Human Personality
Take a reality check whether you are living a principle-centric life. The principles should be in total harmony with the universal laws, trust, respect and timelessness. Sometimes our values do not match the natural laws. We have to create values that are in harmony with universal laws.
Secondly, create a synergistic culture. The top-down autocratic style is obsolete. Today’s knowledge worker age is a different model. The time has come for us to change from Industrial age to information age.
Leadership is NOT about Control
Let’s see the differences.
Once you align your values to the universal laws and create a synergistic culture, it is time for you to help your people to become leaders by helping them find their voice, trust their teams and instituionalize this change in the organization.
Over Coming Ill Effects of Recession – 3 Demensional Approach
1. Personal Greatness: Find your voice (overlap of body, mind, heart and soul)
2. Leadership Greatness: Trust – clear purpose, aligned systems and unleash talent
3. Organizational Greatness: Institutionalize focus and execution – independent of people.
So start from inside-out and conquer recession.
