Showing GRIT in uncertain economic times is a huge challenge but also a time to be creative, take opportunities fast and supporting your team,
creating a secure atmosphere.
Grit translated indicates ‘backbone’, ‘strength of character’, ‘moral fiber’, ‘nerve’, etc.
In today’s business acumen to be in the position to not only find creative ways ongoing to sustain income, not knowing if your business will be non-relevant with a new solution replacing your department or firm tomorrow as new technology, products or solutions are born at the speed of light.
These solutions, technology or products are shared on thousands of platforms and it is impossible to keep up with all that is new.
To contribute to the devastation is an unsteady government, unsteady economy with a huge fall in rand value, more debt, higher prices and a worried people of South Africa of where we as a country and people are headed.
Can we keep up with the negativity or do we choose to focus on our own identity as a corporate entity.
The key is to keep your focus on what you do best and keep your position as well as grow your position in the market. Although it impacts on your business, do not loose any of your emotional energy to government elections, price hikes, Eskom uncertainties and SAA as well as SABC negative influences.
Yes, some of these examples impact directly or indirectly on business but would you not rather spend that valuable time and energy on what is your own and where you can benefit as business?
The teams of businesses also need to understand the concept of
Creative Economy. The uneasiness businesses are experiencing more and more every day, the fact that an employee can be without a job tomorrow. There are no guarantees and the success of any venture/project is up to a full team.
WHAT TO DO FROM HERE ON?
MOST IMPORTANTLY, IN ALL YOU DO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY.
