2020 is behind us at last. Now is the time to begin the rebuilding process. Many of the tried-and-true concepts we have grown familiar with have forever changed. What is needed is a new plan, one that will allow us to change our thinking, leading to new ways of doing. Post Covid, we must position our organizations for hyper growth coming out of the pandemic.
Top motivational speaker Rocky Romanella can help us do that. It’s what he has always done and it’s what he does best. He recently issued a Call To Action For A Rapid Rebuild in 2021.
“In my view the significant difference in the leaders who will successful lead the rapid rebuild of their businesses is their honesty of purpose,” Romanella stated. “It pertains to your motivation, to the pursuit of your goals and dreams. There is no substitute for hard work for the leader as you embark on this rebuild journey. But it is how you face it and the journey you take that speaks to your character. Your true character is defined by your honesty of purpose. Your purpose is sacred and authentic. Honesty is what is at the core of your moral character. It is being trustworthy, loyal, fair, sincere, and true, even when it is difficult to be. It is not only how you create your values, but also how you add value to the lives of others.”
That call to action also reads in part:
“As we begin 2021 It is so important to the culture and future success of our companies to take time and reflect on the values and principles that guide us. It is how we, as leaders, build a strong, uncompromising, and unique culture for our companies going into 2021 and post pandemic.
“We have had a very difficult past year – more than we could have ever anticipated. Yet, I believe we will emerge from these difficult days a stronger and more competitive company – like a phoenix.
“A phoenix is a beautiful, legendary bird that lived in Arabia and, according to myth, consumed itself by fire every 500 years. A new, young phoenix — just as breathtaking — sprang from its ashes. In ancient Egypt, the phoenix represented the sun, which dies at night and is reborn in the morning. Greek mythology presents the stunning creature in the early morning — at dawn it bathes in water and sings an enchanting song. So beautiful is this song that the sun god Helios would stop his chariot to listen.
“There only exists one phoenix at a time. Upon its impending death, it builds a nest, sets itself on fire, and is consumed by the flames. A new phoenix springs forth from the fire. Early Christian tradition adopted the phoenix as a symbol of both immortality and resurrection. Modern folklore utilizes the magnificent creature as a symbol of renewal, rebirth, and starting anew.
“As leaders we need to begin our journey back and start anew. (In previous newsletters we spoke about the need ). It is important to have clarity around Who We Are, What We Stand for and What We Will Not Compromise.
“Now it is about knowing who we are, where we are going and get there as quickly as we can. We began 2020 as a cohesive team, highly motivated with a strong commitment to growing the business. The same holds true in 2021 , yet our circumstances are quite different. And so, our tactics and approach must be as well . . .”
