As Jennifer Porter, executive coach, explains: “Reflection gives the brain an opportunity to pause amidst the chaos, untangle and sort through observations and experiences, consider multiple possible interpretations, and create meaning.”
Post-COVID, we now face a new set of challenges for our industry. To say there is a more chaotic environment within foodservice is a complete understatement when looking at the supply chain and logistical challenges faced today. Leahy-IFP’s resiliency amidst these challenges has been resounding. Our ability to pivot and improve processes has afforded us the flexibility to support the needs of our customers in very dynamic ways. Challenges within the industry will continue into 2023, yet I am very confident in our team’s ability to overcome any obstacles we will face.
That said, for me, the end of the year has become a time for reflection on and appreciation for what we have achieved as well as a time to contemplate the road ahead for our team. In Q4 of 2022, we finalized some lofty company objectives for the year. We have not only accomplished those objectives, but we have also exceeded expectations while facing challenging foodservice market conditions. I am overwhelmingly impressed with the team culture of our organization and the positive results we see because of it.
