March Madness is over and America’s Pastime begins. Just as the athletic seasons change, so do the seasons in business. Whether it be economic, regulations, new industries available to serve or sometimes clients that have completely chosen a new direction, a business must remain nimble for the inevitable changes (known and unknown) just around the corner. The biggest key to company nimbleness will be your team members’ commitment and willingness to change along with the business.  

Just as life has its twists and turns both positive and negative, businesses have similar situations needing addressed. All these situations or seasons should be looked upon as opportunities. It is one characteristic of a business truly being a living / breathing entity. I refer back to our Great Grandfather who in the midst of the Great Depression decided to start a business. Just think of the determination. He focused on demolition and scrapping out production facilities which fell victim to the terrible economy. It proves that in every situation how you look at the circumstances and respond will determine your future. There are two paths: taking on the feelings of a victim or realizing an opportunity has presented itself.

In the past, I tended to be more cautious and less willing to quickly change. Additionally, I would look at circumstances more negatively and fall into victim mode. However, becoming a victim to circumstances wastes tons of energy. Energy, if applied toward the thinking of an opportunity can quickly turn into something very positive.

At PSC several years ago, we experienced a huge reduction in sales due to our heavy focus on the automotive sector. As many team members recall, it was not a fun time for many businesses in our industry, however through the foresight of my brother (Randy), we decided to diversify more to serve other industries we felt growth could be generated from and provide stability over time as the various seasons of change affect different industries. Doing so has proven very beneficial to PSC as not only did we embark on new sectors to serve, it created opportunities for ourselves and team members to internally grow.

As we embark on our new strategic plan, not only are we asking our team members to look at all situations as opportunities, we are also asking them to hold us accountable to looking at negative circumstances with a more positive / opportunistic mindset. Not doing so only closes doors and limits us. Doing so, allows all of us to grow and succeed. Which would you want?

Thank you,

James R. Sever
