Bounce Forward Today
These are short notes for busy leaders. I keep them less than 300 words so you can read them in 3 minutes or less.

How are you today? I pray that you are safe wherever you are. Three days ago, medical workers urged the government to declare ECQ in Metro Manila and nearby provinces. ECQ will delay the spread of the Coronavirus. Medical workers know that ECQ is not a solution. But it is a necessary step so the…
It’s six in the morning. I told myself to stay positive this day. I will not pay attention to the negative things that happened in the past few days. I did not watch the SONA of the President. I had enough of his late-night conferences. But this is easier said than done. Old habits will…
What stories do you tell yourself? Our life is filled with narratives. We tell stories to ourselves; oftentimes we repeat stories told to us by others. Take the stories of Covid-19 for example. We talk about it during lunchtime. To say that we are disappointed about government complacency is an understatement. We know that politics…
Business is good for Lazada. Their delivery van goes around the neighborhood each day. The delivery man said that he now serves more than a thousand orders every day. That means some household order more than one. We can say the same for other delivery services like Shoppe Philippines. And then, you have enterprising people…
My Covid-19 Plan
My plan for live strategic work sessions, speaking, and consulting is dependent on the recommendation of IATF. Over the coming months, let us monitor the recommendation of authorities so we know when guidelines and policies evolve.
As leaders, we adapt. The pandemic forces us to see what we should have seen and acted upon many years ago.
Come up with a staff development program today. It pays to think ahead and different.
How can we win?
Find and create opportunities amidst the coronavirus.
These past few months have been a trying time for the Philippines and the world.
Marami sa atin ang takot. Hindi natin alam kung mahahawa o makakahawa tayo. We don’t see an end to Coronavirus spread in the Philippines. The reported cases are growing. Many of us are frustrated; the government does not seem to know what to do.
Covid-19 will not defeat us. We can change our ways. And if we are wiser, we will turn this crisis into opportunities.
We will bounce forward.
And that means we will change our ways.
What is new normal for you?
The government said that life after MGCQ is the new normal. But I still have no idea what it is. An area not under quarantine surrounded by areas under quarantine won’t feel like near normal at all.
This version of new normal is very abnormal.
By this time, we should have learned our lessons. We should have come up with strategies so we can bounce forward.
We can stop the virus from spreading. We can secure the health and safety of our citizens. These we know to be true.
But we have to change the way we live. We cannot go back to the old ways. There is nothing to bounce back. We must create new ways of living, working, and learning so we can bounce forward and thrive.
Millions of employees lost jobs. Thousands of companies closed.
Find better ways.
But I know of people who turned this crisis around and multiplied their incomes. I know of organizations that adapted themselves to the situations and grew multiple times.
Choose to thrive in tough times. Help your organization grow.
Before Covid-19 appeared, I was helping companies turn leaders into creators and innovators. I feel that this call is more relevant today. Find and create new opportunities.
So you can get started, I will offer you the tools of design thinking. I will create blog entries and online courses so you can access them anytime you want.
I will also teach you how to create online courses rapidly. I can help you turn your training modules into engaging digital courses.
You can get my leadership courses too. Previously, I offered them as live strategic learning sessions. Today, I have repurposed them into online courses. To help you get the most of this, you will also have access to webinars and online coaching sessions.
These are opportunities visible to all of us but were ignored. The crisis of Covid-19 forced us to consider a better option.
Yes, I know. We will soon have live sessions again. But we must learn from our lessons. Let’s live, lead, and learn better.
