“Chaos is the uncertainty sparked by uncharted territory, economic recession, and bubbles of opportunity.” Does this sound like a description of your business over the last 18 months? As I travel the country teaching classes I am continually asked, “How is everyone else doing?” It is almost as if I say that it is terrible everywhere that the questioner feels relieved.(Misery loves company and all that!) Others like to hear that most businesses are rebounding because they feel they are next.
A recent book by Jeremy Gutsche titled Exploiting Chaos has focused on what businesses are doing to come out of this recession stronger than they entered it. In case you would like to know what the book is about before you buy it, I found a great blog that details the 15 key points.
My suggestion is to look at one quote per day then focus on the point until you see how it can help your company.
