During a recession a leader must cut costs or risk going out of business.
That usually means retrenchments.
Retrenchments are not fun.
Much easier is to avoid the hard decision and coast along relying on prayer.
That’s the path that ultimately leads to bankruptcy and everyone losing their job.
The right thing is to cut costs early and whether the storm.
Survive the tough times so you can flourish again when the economy turns.
That’s the right thing to do.
Doing the right thing is usually also doing the hard thing.
