For months, the word “pivot” was the most popular word in the virtual halls of every successful company. It spoke to the need to quickly respond to an unexpected crisis. It promised a fast solution to a challenge we all thought would last for weeks, months or at the longest a whole year. But the challenge was not temporary, it stretched beyond our expectations and a new solution was needed to build the new future.
The best companies will look beyond the pivot and will lean into four different investments. They’ll double down on Skills, Character, Relationships and Hustle in intentional ways that bring clarity to chaos. They’ll refocus, rebuild, and relaunch to better serve their customers. They’ll emerge with new tools and a new direction. Why? Because a crisis is a classroom. It’s an invitation to innovation you might not have planned for, but definitely need.
The future is bright, but it must be built.
