I wish I could tell you it gets better, but it doesn’t get better, you get better.
We recruit – and work best with – people who want to grow and live outside the comfort zone. Our team embodies courage every day. Throughout this trying year we have remained committed to our belief that the consulting hustle is a privilege.
Culture is the only truly sustainable competitive advantage and it takes effort to get right, but I am proud that our weekly “team pulse” was consistently higher than 4 out of 5 all year. It says a lot about how Struber survived and thrived.
Early this year, I talked about not wasting a crisis, and I am thrilled so many of our clients took up the opportunity to get better while dealing with the unknown and uncomfortable. You are rockstars! However, do not slip back into the office and the old way of doing things. Figure out what should stay and get even better in 2021.
The task ahead of you is never as great as the power behind you.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Reward and recovery are part of any competitive professional pursuit. For this Christmas and New Year, I hope you get time to recharge, observe, understand, reflect and prepare for the next chapter.
Thank you for the honour of advising, supporting, delivering, guiding and partnering with the best of infrastructure in 2020. We are ready to grind and get results for your customers, employees and communities next year.
Looking forward to the January sprint. Take care and best wishes.
