Innovate. Now is the time to squeeze more performance out of all your efforts by streamlining and lowering the cost of doing business. Look at areas where you can reduce cost of goods sold, rent, energy, and the efficacy of your policies, procedures and information management.
Keep spirits high and instill confidence in those around you. Show appreciation for the extra hours and extra effort by those around you. Give people a chance to blow off steam. Force yourself to take a break. Nobody works well when they lack motivation, and this is especially true in tough economic times. In a recession, strategy and tactics become more important than ever, but the human element - more important still.
