Shifting to Growth Strategies in a Down Economy

It’s been 12 months since the American investment banking system collapsed, starting a domino-like financial crisis that eventually spread around the world.  The good news is that the worst appears to be over.  The bad news is that the hard work of rebuilding your business still lies ahead.  This shift from immediate survival to planning for next steps is creating a new set of challenges for leaders according to Dr. Dick Ruhe, Senior Consulting Partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies and co-author of the business book Know Can Do!  

“People have spent the last twelve months thinking about, “what if?”  What if they lop off my part of our organization? Or what if they cut out my product line? Or worse case, what if the entire organization goes under?”

Leaders have to deal with that by making the shift from survival to growth.  Now instead of stopping the red ink by reducing expenses, organizations have to shift to getting back in the black by setting new directions.  

That’s the focus of an August 11 webinar where Dr. Ruhe is the featured speaker.  It’s complimentary and it’s just been posted on The Ken Blanchard Companies web site.  To learn more, check out We’re Still Here… Now What?
