Ep143: Decision Making & COVID-19

28 minutes

There’s so much to talk about with Covid-19, you can hardly blame us for having a second episode on it. Let’s talk about the behind-the-scenes decision making happening in businesses right now as they navigate these wildly uncharted waters. 

Why is that important for business? 

As businesses navigate the difficult decisions that come with this unprecedented time in our world, we want to remind you that there are often no clean solutions to problems in business (see our episode Stop Ignoring the Solution https://soheresmystory.com/ep132-stop-ignoring-the-solution/). We can’t dismiss solutions simply because they come with new barriers – we don’t have the luxury right now of waiting for the perfect solution. It might not even be possible to let your values guide your decision. This requires a new way of dealing with a problem and it can be paralyzing. We aren’t used to thinking 9 steps out from our own thing. We live in a world that makes assumptions about other people’s availability that are no longer true.  

On top of that, we are faced with the question: what if we’re wrong?

These are difficult decisions, and we don’t have the luxury of navigating by avoiding known regrets. 

Look to other companies not for advice, but for the scaffolding that will help you make your own decision. And after we have made the decision, we have to be ready not to judge it by what others think.
