The Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce and Horizon Point Consulting have partnered to bring the business community opportunities to develop skills critical to surviving our current climate of economic uncertainty and public health emergencies.
These sessions are free and open to the public.

Leading in the Midst of a Crisis
Monday, Sept. 14 / 1 p.m.
Leaders always deal with some level of stress given their roles. During these unprecedented times of COVID-19, leaders are dealing with stress that is beyond normal, both personally and professionally. Uncommon levels of stress can cause unwanted behaviors in us all, but true leaders rise to the occasion through emotional intelligence and empathy. During this session, leaders will learn the four keys to leading in times of crisis and the three things NOT to do during a crisis. Actionable, behavioral-based tactics to implement these characteristics will be given to all participants.

Business Continuity
Tuesday, Sept. 15 / 10 a.m.
Disasters, whether natural or man-made, can have a lasting impact on organizations if they are not prepared. A great way to ensure that your organization is prepared is to create a Business Continuity Plan, which allows your organization to continue operating during a disaster and helps to minimize the impact. During this session, participants will learn how to assess their organization and determine what functions are essential to your operation; determine what resources are needed to maintain those essential functions, or to get those services back up and running as quickly as possible; designate employees or departments responsible for acquiring certain resources in preparation for a disaster or restoring certain services in the aftermath; and practice for the real thing.
