Making this your best recession ever
Jay Holmes and his MedMan team hosted our fist all-village flash collaboration to share ideas on how to deal with the threats of inflation, increasing interest rates and workforce difficulties. Interesting ideas included-
  • hoard cash and buy talent, real estate and stocks at sale prices
  • pivot to new gaps left by others
  • sell outsourcing when hospitals layoff staff
  • personally visit clients when no one else is
  • get rid of C players
  • grow market share while others are distracted
  • engage employees in finding solutions
  • stay in business so you can enjoy the recovery that always happens eventually
