How the Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership can Recession – Proof Your Role

From businesses closing down and mass redundancies, the impact of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has been devastating for many of us.

For the first time in 11 years, the UK is in recession. What does that mean exactly?

In normal times, a country’s economy will continue to grow, meaning the value of goods and services it produces will increase.

However, sometimes the value of goods and services produced will fall and a recession is defined when this happens for two quarters in a row.

If a recession carries on for an extended period of time and gets particularly bad, it is known as a depression.

But never fear, we are not there yet! Figures for July suggest a recovery is well under way.

 

Changing Roles

For lots of businesses, supply and demand has been affected, their processes have been affected and they have furloughed or made staff redundant.

Lots of businesses will need to conduct a thorough analysis of their needs and processes and are likely to change and adapt staff for different roles than were needed before.

For lots of people, this can be a worrying time, and lots of us will wonder if we fit into the company’s future vision.

 

Qualifications

If you’re wondering how a recession could affect you, now is a great time to recession-proof your role.

You can do this by developing your qualifications.

For managers and team leaders, it might be time to commit some energy into increasing and updating your qualifications.

For example, you can improve your practical and theoretical strategic management and leadership skills with the OTHM Level 7 online distance learning course.

A recent addition to our online strategic management courses.

Ideas for life – no more resolutions

Why most of us fail? If you are in the incredible 20% of people who hit their resolutions every year, congratulations! You are a rare breed 🙌🥳👏 For the rest of us, it is mostly a journey downwards into a spiral of failure, guilt, and frustration which circles back to thinking less of ourselves and hardly ever making us feel good or achieve anything meaningful. Most of us fail for three main reasons: Lack of clarity, Unreasonable expectations, and Lack of inspiration or passion.
