Recovery and Regeneration

Consider a “fire” you are currently experiencing, see looming in the distance, or can reasonably predict might happen as you answer the questions below.

When the blaze is over, you have the following possible growth strategies.

  • Recovery. The damage was significant, and people are hurting. I’ll need to express empathy to those who remain, give them time to heal, and provide the assurance of new growth so they don’t get mired in negative emotions and can get back to where we were.  
  • Regeneration. Despite the initial shock, the fire has consumed many of the things that were holding the team back or keeping us stuck in the status quo. As a leader, my job is to help those remaining to transition as quickly as possible to a vision that can include new ways of thinking, doing, and working together.
