Crucible /ˈkroo͞ səb(ə)l/ – It is both an opportunity and a test. It is a defining moment that unleashes abilities, forces crucial choices, and sharpens focus. It teaches a person who he or she is. (Leading for a Lifetime – Bennis & Thomas, 2007)
How are you using this moment to propel yourself forward and strengthen your business?
There is no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our lives. Whether we are deemed essential workers or are able to work from home, our individual circumstances shape our view of this experience. How you choose to find meaning in a crucible type event, such as the pandemic, can significantly impact the likelihood of your success.
