For the hospitality industry, last week was one for the history books. Although not one we care to revisit again soon. We saw so many of our colleagues and close friends on the receiving end of furloughs, unemployment, financial uncertainty and hotels closing their doors.
We all need to be two things during this time: Be Strong and Be Kind.
During times of uncertainty we need to embrace the shift, letting go of what we have known and how we have always done things. Uncertainty + Fear = Anxiety. We must learn to uncouple fear from uncertainty to evolve – to embrace the shift.
What we have done up until now is not what we will do in the future. We will evolve by finding new ways to partner and together we will thrive. If we accept the challenge of today and come together to find new ways of working, on the other side we will be stronger than ever before.
Our wish for you this week is that you focus on taking care of yourself and your family. Focus on your strength (you are stronger than you realize) and move through the week with kindness. On the road ahead, we will be refining our plans to support you and our HPN family along with strategies for our collective future success.
“With a warrior heart, square up your shoulders, keep your chin up and keep swinging.”
Be strong and be kind,
