What can you learn from crisis?
We are now getting back off our knees and as the saying goes, "what doesn't break you makes you stronger", we have learnt vital lessons that might help you if your own business is going though challenges. Some of these include:
1. Simplify, simplify, simplify. If your lowest team member doesn't understand it, don't sell it.
2. Communicate internally. Talk to one another. Sometimes even if there is no high agenda point, talk to one another. Some of the most valuable advice comes when people just talk. Some of your team members will only be comfortable speaking in person. Crisis can be averted through listening.
3. Remember your core competencies. Stick to what you do best and have the courage to turn down what you shouldn't do or cannot do. What did the customers love the most? Stick to that, of course keeping an eye on the business environment for seismic shifts.
4. Toxic members. Are some of your team toxic? They might be good on their own, but do they get along

Send me email on frankotrix@Yahoo.com so that I give you production guide for any crop. Also if you walk into House of seed office you will get experts. Good luck
