5 P’s of GETTING through the PANDEMIC

As I write we are about 5 weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic. Tragic loss of life, physical suffering and an unprecedented interruption to the comings and goings of individuals nationwide. Second only to human suffering are the multitude of profound, and in some cases, irreversible interruption to employment opportunities, growth of businesses and the impact of the loss of tax revenues at the local, state and federal level.

The punitive impact of COVID-19 will run a long course, one well past the full recovery of all medical cases.

But one thing I pray will also run a long course is the manner in which many individuals, communities, NFPs, NGOs, select businesses, and nearly every college, church and school have pivoted to regard themselves less and others more.

In this segment of TRANSFORMATION BEGINS TODAY (TBT), I point out the 5 P’s that I pray carry us to “Back to Better” rather than “Back to Normal”!

Watch TRANSFORMATION BEGINS TODAY (TBT) and comment in the box below about how you and your organization can use the Five P’s now in order to develop an intentional plan to get “BACK to BETTER”.
