Is it just me . . . or do you get the feeling that business in general is in a ‘let’s wait and see’ mode?
As an entrepreneur for more than 30 years, I’ve been here before a time or two.
In the beginning of 2022, I thought things were on the upswing, but now I am seeing a general reluctance to move forward. It’s as if there is a new level of uncertainty that has arisen in the last 6 months. I’m struggling to put my finger on it as an eternal optimist – but there are many changes in the business world that are new to us all, that are perhaps changing or shaping our thoughts.
My standing joke is – I tried to get everyone to come back into the office on a regular basis so we could resume our comradery, laughter, and customer service excellence in the workplace. I was met with incredible reluctance as people learned to adjust their lives after so many lockdowns.
I get it.
So many balls in the air . . . kids, commute, multiple directives based on numerous workplaces for each household, alternating school schedules and more. But I have to tell you. This sort of pushback is not one I have experienced and left me wondering: Who is the Boss here?
Definitely not something I have experienced before.
For those of you who have spent countless nights staying awake to think of ways to create jobs and make the workplace a great place to be, today’s business world has a host of new challenges.
My optimism tells me we will get to the other side.
But my impatience says: Let’s get on with it already!
If you are experiencing the same, please let me know. It’s always good to keep your ear to the ground, if you know what I mean.
Wishing you success always and thank you for reading.
