Bodo  Janssen - A Question of Attitude


Letting go and acting instead of worrying and complaining

Mid-March 2020: The Corona pandemic. Lockdown. The 89 Upstalsbom Hotels must close. Income quickly goes from a hundred per cent to nothing. The very existence of Bodo Janssen's company and its employees is threatened. Janssen then experiences how his corporate style and values prove themselves. His employees take the initiative and decide what needs to be prioritised and how things are to be implemented. New methods are discovered in this process. They include making decisions on the fly, carefully observing changes until the facts are clarified, revising decisions when better solution possibilities become apparent, and creating a transparent information structure.

Bodo Janssen's conclusion is that his company and its employees became more flexible and self-confident during the crisis and emerged stronger from it.

This is a very personal book that presents insights which can be applied to crises of all kinds far beyond the corona situation, from small, everyday problems to existence-threatening ones.

• Connection, solidarity, open communication, and a willingness to help create the foundation of successful decisions

"A very personal book, providing insights useful for crises of all kinds, far beyond Covid – everyday as well as existential ones."
