Building to Last: Mental Health is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

“I think a lot of teams want to jump into ‘let’s just start forecasting.’ And my sense is, the strategy is optionality.

We have no idea how to forecast, every ounce of energy you put into forecasting–don’t forecast. Put it into helping the business. Telling the right story for an economic downturn.

Changing your COGs, your product, whatever you need to do. Put your energy there knowing you’re maintaining optionality.”

In this final episode of our podcast mini-series Building to Last, product led growth expert Blake Bartlett interviews co-founders Robert Wahbe and Oliver Sharp from Highspot.

They discuss the do’s and don’ts of communication during a crisis as well as some mental health tips for leaders during this difficult time. A few takeaways from the episode include:

⏰Don’t waste time forecasting, focus on optionality
💰How to make sure customers get the most value out of your product
🏃‍♂️Mental health is a marathon, not a sprint
