Wendy Dickinson - "Catalytic Conversation$"
COVID 19 has served a major catalyst for change in 2020. COVID is a macro event - world wide impact in every marketplace and industry.
COVID 19 is also a micro event- you as an individual, the people on your team, and the reality that COVID 19 is just one possible challenge to navigate through. Many people can add the challenges of working from home, other health considerations, natural disasters (hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes), as well as death & injury.
Each of these occurrences offers you, the Executive, the opportunity to create business continuity plans that offer support during times of challenge. With a BCP, you and your team can grab the BCP and edit to fit the current challenge. A BCP allows you the chance to respond, rather than react.

Show Objectives - The Why
There is always the possibility of multiple challenges facing your business simultaneously. COVID 19 was a huge catalyst for change that in many cases, was exacerbated by the fact that businesses were not prepared for a catastrophic event of any kind - not the hurricanes that hit, or the wildfires that started, or the loss of someone important to the organization.
What to do?
Have a BCP for the injury or death of a key person in your organization. This allows the organization to pivot to change the business model - changes to the operations model, logistics and supply chains, talent management plans can be examined and discussed as a team prior to the occurrence. It’s a low risk way to prepare.
In other words, when things go to hell in a handbasket, you and your team will bring out your BCP and begin to adjust it, collect the data needed to make the right adjustments, and begin to execute using the specific tasks done by specific people who have trained to take on the responsibilities while the rest of the world is trying to adjust to the crisis.
