30-MINUTE DAILY BRIEFINGS

OUR SINGULAR GOAL:
TO DELIVER ACTIONABLE BEST PRACTICES
TO IMPLEMENT FOR OUR COMPANIES -
FOR BUSINESS UNUSUAL IN THE NEW NORMAL

We call it the New Normal,
but no one knows exactly what it is.

As the global pandemic rages on, business has its own desperate frontlines.
Jobs and entire industries must be saved, kept afloat and restarted as soon as is safe. Then what?

Consider that in our leading circles of business and government, the smart money is that COVID-19 may well carry on in waves, much like the Spanish Influenza of 1918-1919 that persisted in three waves.

It is this longevity that is shaping scenario planning among our best and brightest business leaders.

AHA BIZ! is not about stop-gaps and band-aids. Those are useful too in this time of crisis. But here our investigative team has purposefully decided to track down all the ways in which the New Normal will demand Business Unusual – for good and for keeps.

There’s a war out there and we’re ordered to stay in here. What role can you and I play?

Last time I said these words in front of a camera, we were still allowed to shoot in our studio. Today, only 5 days later, we are completely locked down – no one leaves home.

That last time, I introduced my team’s contribution to this global war. We called it 100HOUR LAUNCHPAD, a free step-by-step toolkit for teams to launch breakthrough solutions in 100 hours or less. We built that tool in 3 days especially to help leaders re-focus and re-organize their teams to respond to debilitating business problems caused by pandemic.

This time, I will share a second project. In fact, the first fruits of 100HOUR LAUNCHPAD, which my team used to launch this second solution – in 18 hours!

This one we call 30DAYS GROWTHPAD.

It’s simple: 30DAYS GROWTHPAD will be a digital space of growth programs and transformation experiences for professionals by professionals – given freely, taken freely, all remote friendly.

In this spirit of solidarity, we are determined to turn these days of global lockdown into some of our finest days of growth, girt, and resilience.

Now 30 days is not meant to be a finish line. Whether it is 30 or 60 or 90 days – who knows how long this will last? The point is we have a chance here, supporting each other, to find new strengths in oursleves – and keep going from there, from strength to strength, for life. We will not stop.

Whatever happens in this great crisis of humanity, we are determined that we will come out of these days much stronger, as professionals, as leaders, as human beings.

30DAYS GROWHTPAD is free for all to use, whether you are an individual or you want your whole team or office to use it – it’s free.

This is our part in this global war. As I said last time, we are not doctors, we are not in government. But we know what we do well and we are grateful for the privilege to serve in this time of need.

We all have our battlefields, we all have our fights in this, humanity’s one big fight.

Let’s each do our part. COVID-19 will not beat us.
