Message from our CEO
Make hay when the sun shines, but remember it doesn’t always shine.
Our society can be myopic; maintain your own independence of thought and carefully choose who you let into your close circle of advisors. Leaders need to be able to block out the noise, focus on what matters, and see the world today in its proper historical context. Prepare appropriately both to shore up defenses and capitalize on opportunities. Rising interest rates, inflation, a stock market correction, energy & other market disruptions after trading with the enemy in critical goods, the resurfacing of conflict and the decimation of crypto values were all inevitable and obvious. With respect to our environment, which will impact all of us, leaders need to understand the road we are on and take action. With respect to our businesses, the primary focus needs to be on building a well-oiled machine: having the best people focused on the business’ critical value drivers and vulnerabilities. Minimize the energy going to tertiary items.
We are lucky to be in North America, despite its shortcomings. Let us be appropriately grateful.
