As businesses and business owners look to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, they will be challenged to adapt to whatever the future holds. As a business owner, I’m right there with you. As a business strategist and leadership developer, I’m right here to help you.

To help solve for the unknown, my firm, The Lattitude Group has introduced ‘fast-track’ business plans. These step-by-step plans start with immediate business needs, such as financial viability, and advance to business stability and then business prosperity.

You might feel like the process of developing a long-term comprehensive strategic plan is pretty much off the table right now. You might be focused on pivoting — perhaps introducing new products, services or ways of doing business and serving clients. You might have had to shut down temporarily. Our business recovery plans can help you and your business get back on track, wherever you are and whatever you know or don’t know about what the future holds.

My firm has offered all of our customers and prospects consultations on where and how to begin the planning process. Randy Lowman, president of The Lattitude Group, and I want companies to come out on the other side of COVID-19 better and stronger than when they entered. There is so much stress for business owners and the world now, so we want to do our part to help businesses.

It’s like John D. Rockefeller once said — “I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.” Now that’s the right attitude, a word you will notice is part of our name. But it’s more than part of our name. Attitude is who we are and how we get to where we want to be.

Our new business recovery plans are completed virtually, within hours, not weeks, and you as the business owner finish the process with a clear roadmap.

The plans cover three key areas:

• Emergence planning, which targets financial stability

• Resurgence planning, which provides a plan for business stability

• Convergence planning, which addresses business prosperity

Finally, we recently launched a COVID-19 Information page on our website. The page provides a comprehensive list of resources for businesses. We really want to be part of the solution for as many business as possible. Good luck and stay safe out there. We will get through this together.
