Do you have a business partner? Then perhaps this meme resonates. Among the many ‘keep your chin up’ memes floating around the internet as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis is one featuring a quote from Dave Hollis, business coach and author of Get Out of Your Own Way that says:
“In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to.”
It’s good advice. Hopefully, you and your business partners are working together productively to weather this storm. But for some of you, today’s challenging business climate may well be bringing to the fore, differences between you and a partner in management style, philosophy, and perhaps work ethic.
Change is coming to your business and business plan, whether you want it or not. It is worth using this time to ask yourself whether you want to navigate these changes with your current business partners, or whether it makes sense to consider an alternative path.
