Most people assume that change is loss, and stop spending, hiring, training etc. These assumptions dictate our personal response in though times and determines certain behavior.

Develop ideas, share ideas, execute ideas and yes be persistent…!
Answer questions, also though questions, be open and very honest no exceptions: Silence leads to doubt, doubt leads to fear, fear leads to panic, panic leads to worst case thinking. Don’t help build the silence spiral.
