Another clever video captures the uncertainty of what we can do to fight the virus.I don’t intend to bemoan the “we’re all in this together” message.

To do this, you must affirm what their ideals are and encourage them to go after it.During this time of uncertainty, it is easy to take a tactical approach, toss vision and branding aside, and let the unusual amount of distractions and self-doubt overwhelm you and your team. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img
