How to Create an Opportunity out of Adversity

Adversity brings the best in human beings. We have seen that happening at many organizations. With less manpower, and reduced financial inputs, leaders are delivering, and accomplishing the set goals. It is quite clear that adversity has converted itself into an opportunity for excellence. Not knowing what we do not know has often been the bane of many a leader. and has resulted in precious man hours being wasted in the pursuits with no logical conclusions, depriving the knowledge area of the precious time for task accomplishment.

  1. 1
    Concentrate on the knowledge areas set an example for team members

  2. 2
    Motivate them for higher achievements.

  3. 3
    Make positive changes. Since this is the time when organizations are expecting more output with reduced man power. It is imperative that managers bring about small changes in their attitudes and work pattern.
  4. TIPS

  • Know that you must execute
