In this new episode, we talked to Michael Seton, solicitor director and accredited specialist at Ryan & Seton Lawyers, on the constantly changing landscape around COVID-19 and vaccines for small business owners. We also dived into the rights and obligations of small business owners, their teams and staff, and their obligations to their customers during the pandemic.
Here are the Key Takeaways from this episode.
1. There’s no one-size-fits-all.
Public health orders and mandates are different for every location, industry and jobs. The thing to keep in mind with all of this is that it is rapidly changing and updating and it is largely untested by the courts – so we do not have clear black-and-white answers, which can be very challenging for small business owners. It is important to have an effort to be aware of the developments to do right by your customers and staff.
2. Keep your eyes on the horizon.
Seeing the big picture is one of Michael’s Get to the Contest points. If you focus on the bigger goal of what you’re doing now, you will not be bogged down with the mundane of the day-to-day.
Exposing yourself to diverse thinking equals to a better background and a better space for decision-making. Seeking out all the possible thoughts can ultimately make a well-rounded decision.
4. Prepare to abandon the past and move on to find a better way ahead.
Experience is a wonderful thing and should not be lost, but that doesn't mean the day-to-day of how you do your role shouldn't evolve and develop. You've got to constantly get your head to adapt and evolve.
5. Backing your people first.
You're working with your team and they need to know that you have their back. It's hard to develop a reliable team, and if you go into bat for your team, they will back you up and see you through in times of challenges.
