8 Actionable Insights: Pivoting in the Face of Adversity

By Canadian Management Centre

In this RealityChek® Conversation, Kevin and Tania discuss what leaders can do right now to pivot their work to respond to the current economic environment. This includes asking yourself the following 8 critical questions.

To calibrate your mindset, ask yourself…

  1. How proactive are you prepared to be? Will you take no action (and risk failing)? Take little action (and maybe survive)? Or, take the right action and move ahead successfully?
  2. As it relates to your leadership mindset – are you going to be a victim or a champion? It all comes down to what you choose to focus on.
  3. As it relates to your organization – Are you going to tread water or innovate?
  4. As it relates to your team – Are you as a leader going to allow your team to sit in an anxious state or motivate them to succeed?

Further, to pivot your business, ask yourself…

  1. What’s your (product/service) offer? Consider what you are offering customers and whether you can start a new line of business.
  2. Who is your customer? Does your primary customer base need to change?
  3. Is your message still relevant? Most of us are more focused on the immediate, short-term. How is your messaging relating to your customer’s needs?
  4. Finally, your delivery: how are you delivering now and does this need to change?
