Some Good News – Be Proactive – Focus on Post-Covid

While all of us are doing our part to beat this war on the virus, we have an opportunity to move forward and utilize this time to make our businesses/organizations better and more profitable while engaging staff and raising their spirits. All businesses are struggling. Post Covid, the challenge will be to get your business up and running fast and be able to do more with what you have.

Now is the time to prepare! Don’t wait till after the virus is beaten.

Take this opportunity to build your staff’s knowledge on how they can be a major force in your business’ speedy recovery and make it thrive to even higher heights than it did prior to the crisis.

One suggestion - Our Lean Online Yellow Belt Program, developed with industry experts and Dr. Bob Abell, Learning PhD, has been successfully used by hundreds of companies throughout North America and has been found to be an ideal training for staff at all levels. The program has 7 interactive voiced-over modules covering all the major concepts and the methodology of Lean. There are quizzes and final tests on each module to ensure ‘learning’. It is flexible, and easily accessed remotely. The result is staff will have the necessary knowledge critical to driving and supporting your business strategy for success. Additionally, they will have gained an increased sense of respect and pride in your business.

Also, why not add a little FUN into their lives. Some companies are setting up friendly competition between departments and staff for highest scores. It gives them a little distraction from the constant bombardment of bad news and the monotony/stress of isolation. Contact us: [email protected] or (613) 382-158


Prepare for Post Virus New World

These are very difficult times for organizations and their families.  Many businesses will be negatively impacted by this Covid-19 virus and will struggle to survive.  And if they survive this crisis, then they will be challenged with a whole ‘new’ world of higher customer expectations.

So, let’s be proactive and not reactive!  Let’s take this time when staff are working from home to gain the critical knowledge they will need to be prepared, and support your efforts when the crisis is over.

Lean Advisors has a full interactive Online Yellow Belt Lean Program already used effectively by hundreds of companies, big and small, both manufacturing and service type, around North America.  The learning/knowledge from these Online programs has trained staff on how to adapt and apply Lean to become more flexible, and be able to make them more competitive and successful.

This virus will be beat!  It will change the world but you can be ready for the post viral economic demands and expectations of your customers.

Please stay safe!
