Stay safe on track in critical times

"You don’t drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there." Edwin Louis Cole

Many projects in businesses fail just as the quote above implies. When certain things are not dealt with they can cause imbalances that go unnoticed and quite often are abandoned. Eyes are closed to any forewarning or indication of a shortcoming. That is why it is extremely important to be directly aware of and be able to solve a crisis.

"The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity“, believed John F. Kennedy. This means we have a chance to seize the freedom to concentrate on an appointed turn. If we analyse and address the root causes of the crisis we can initiate and take immediate measures. But, longer terms require continual measures to stabilise a turnaround situation and lead us directly out of a crisis. 

When we communicate, we speak in a 'one-voice-principle', in other words we communicate unified and coherently outwards avoiding misdeeds and misunderstandings. How do we ensure measures of effective action?

For this purpose, we need a controlling interest in a new stable plan would induce and aid a cultural change. Every successful learning outcome will be recorded and celebrated with emotional and rational assurances. As we want to guarantee sustainable projects, we will also develop a system for early detection of a crisis and subsequent provisions. Once our TurnAround works there is not only a change in the Project but also in the attitude of all concerned. Successful crises affect our perception, awareness, sensitivity and we become more vigilant. We will not be immune from crises but we will be able to face them with courage, a positive attitude in a constructive spirit of mind.
