Get your business and your team 'match fit' for 2018!
LESS THAN 18 MONTHS TO 'BREXIT DAY'
The UK is set to leave the European Union (EU) on 29 March 2019, and to date it is unclear the impact that it will have on our economy, employment conditions and business operations. As the UK government and EU officials jostle for respective negotiating stances, businesses are attempting to plan for the future.
Currently, the UK economy is relatively strong. However, set against a backdrop of potential interest rate rises, the medium to long term trading environment is as clear as mud!
No business can afford to simply 'wait and see', so kick start your 2018 by preparing your teams to get match fit for BREXIT!
UNCERTAINTY BREEDS DISCORD
At best, uncertainty can breed exacerbated levels of caution; at worst, it can result in blame cultures, people and departments operating in silos, a general air of mistrust and excessively directive management behaviours - in short, people 'closing up' and developing a protectionist attitude. There is another way...
DEVELOPING YOUR 'CRACK SQUAD'
The time is now for proactive strategy planning, harnessing creativity and innovation, and developing your best ever 'crack squad' of senior managers. Nurturing and investing in these people NOW will enable your business to navigate choppy waters ahead.
Over the next 18 months your ' crack squad' should:
- develop a vision for your business through to BREXIT and beyond that inspires all co-workers;
- motivate, engage and develop resilience for teams if times get tough;
- have the agility to change course if required in response to new changes;
- keep the business and its people focused on the end game, and adopt the operational processes and procedures required to get there.
