DDS Strategy for Business Continuity During COVID-19 Crisis
Recently we have been strategizing at DDS for business continuity during the COVID-19 crisis and we wanted to share our thoughts on this strategy. At DDS we try to look at the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity for newness and we see technology as the answer to all of our new reality of business continuity. We ask ourselves, how can we solve the challenges we are facing with COVID-19 with technology? We ask ourselves what tools do me and my employees have at our fingertips that we can use to continue our operations from home if possible and when we have to go to the office, how can we keep our distance?
Above all, we take the COVID-19 crisis seriously. We do everything you can do to keep social distance; take turns going into the office if you share one, keep the 6 feet of distance if you have to be in the same room, wear face masks, wash hands regularly, wipe surfaces and more. (more suggestions at our blog on how we care about your wellbeing)
Finally, we stay positive. Here's two quotes I find so pertinent recently during the COVID-19 crisis.
- The first my 9-year-old son reminded me about - “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” This quote is credited to both Abraham Lincoln and Peter Drucker, two people known for their word of wisdom and lessons to live by.
- “Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” A quote from Martin Luther King Jr. I would add, take each next step in faith too, and to quote more children’s themes, as the 'Frozen II' song says, do the “Next Right Thing”. Another movie I rave about which highlights the importance of taking the next right step is 'Harriet'; a must see. Harriet never knew what would happen several steps down the line in her effort to free slaves and she always trusted God for the next step to be revealed to her.
So, at DDS, we try not to be afraid, we go boldly to take the next step, creating the future we want for our business, our families, and our community through our positive thoughts and targeted actions.
Peace and blessings from all of us working through this with you at DDS.
