It’s Mardi Gras season in New Orleans, and keeping businesses focused on actual business may be the ultimate challenge. Each city has its own distractions. Kentucky Derby. Boston Marathon. Super Bowl.
What can a company do to steward a vigorous work ethic while valuing the culture that makes its city unique? Apply these tenets to your “distraction” and get down to business.
• Acknowledge that there will be diversions
• Be flexible
• Express your expectations
• Communicate with your clients and vendors
• Capitalize on the event
While there is work to be done, enjoy the moment and celebrate – at least for a day.
