Business Lessons From Covid-19

Business / July 30, 2021

The Covid-19 Pandemic began in late 2019. At that time, few would have predicted that we would still be dealing with it approaching two years later. During that time we have learned how adaptable and resilient we can be as entrepreneurs. We have changed how we do business, for good in some ways. We have seen many businesses fall by the wayside, and many thrive and continue to grow. So what lessons have we learned from the pandemic that will continue to help us in the long-term?

Nothing Is Set in Stone

One of the great lessons of the pandemic has been that we should take nothing for granted. A major event like this reminds us that complacency is the antithesis of good business. The deals you have in place; your daily routines; the events you planned; the clients you will never lose. Any of these things can change in an instant, and if you are not ready to adapt you may be set for failure. You can’t plan for an uncertain future, but you can be certain that it is coming.

Traditional Business is Changing

The ways that we do business are bound for change in response to a changing world. Many people have been carrying on business in traditional ways, because it worked. But those people are finding out that those methods worked because they were never challenged. A slow shift towards modern management methods has been happening for a long time. But Covid-19 accelerated that to light speed. Modern business is now a very digital affair, and we can’t afford to ignore that anymore.

Relationships Matter

Business has always been about relationships, but no more so than when we are at a distance. When an event forces us all to disconnect, it forces us to consider the value of connection. In this era of remote work and digital meetings, we all have to reconsider how we maintain relationships.
