ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN FOCUS
BACK TO BASICS
As the pandemic slowly calms and economics growth resumes, the Canadian C-suite must shift focus from crises management to recovery leadership. Nearly one-quarter of Canadian business owners said they pivoted their business during the crises because of financial pressure related to adapting and survival.
But recovery must address more fundamental questions. What comes next? What are our priorities? What does our business mean to our employees and our customers? Leaders must avoid falling back on old ways of doing business. Recovery and future leadership seeks to strike a balance between returning to normal and re-envisioning the future.
As mid-sized businesses prove their resiliency and focus on new avenues of growth, Zeifmans’expert advisors can help prepare your business for the post pandemic era and beyond. Over the last 60 years, we’ve helped numerous companies change and adapt to new challenges-and seize new opportunities.
