Colleagues and Friends,

We stand with our community during this difficult time and are grateful to those risking exposure to the virus in industries deemed essential. We hope that you and your families stay healthy.

This is a time of grave uncertainty for both individuals and organizations alike. On the other side of this health crisis is a new normal that has yet to emerge. Organizations will need new eyes to reevaluate and adjust their processes and needs in the aftermath of COVID-19. Our team at DeYoung Consulting Services is committed to helping guide companies through these difficult times and working together to forge new pathways in an uncertain future. This includes remaining flexible and working with our clients and stakeholders to adapt, as needed, our project deliverables, timelines and mediums of communication. Together, with our communities and clients, we have the resolve and resilience needed for the long run.

In response to an international call for social distancing, our whole team is working from home. We have shifted to a virtual platform and will continue to work with our clients via technology until it is declared safe to resume meeting in person again. To that end, Karen DeYoung, our CEO, was recently interviewed by the Star Tribune to discuss how local small businesses are adapting to recent social distancing guidelines. How do teams stay connected and productive during the transition? You can read the article here to hear our and others’ insight into adapting to this new work climate.

We wish everyone the best, and don’t forget to connect with others. We are in this together! Thank you!

Karen DeYoung|CEO of DeYoung Consulting Services
