 Business Recovery and Resiliency Coaching


Community Futures Sun Country recognizes the importance of small to medium sized business in our regional economy.  This past year has been a challenge; our Business Recovery and Resiliency Program's purpose is to assist rural businesses and organizations to gain traction and recover post disaster.

Our goal is to provide you with practical tools, resources and strategies to help your business become more resilient and successful.

Despite its rewards, running a business can be hard at the best of times.  Recovering from a disaster introduces additional challenges and complexities that businesses aren't expecting or prepared for.  While the road to recovery is being paved with numerous programs, grants, subsidies, and initiatives, and supportive services, many businesses either don't have the time or expertise to figure it all out and develop their own plan to recovery.

Our Regional Business Liaisons will work one on one with existing businesses to help stabilize and increase, as well as if required, identify and diversify revenues streams.  Their activities will be to advise and coach business owners to determine their specific needs and align their recovery efforts with programming, grants, subsidies and initiatives that are being offered by a myriad of providers from all levels of government and industry.  If assistance is required, to aid in the application process, the RBL can help or be a conduit to individuals who have sector/industry specific knowledge and expertise.

Many businesses are realizing that an objective, independent RBL can provide them with fresh new perspectives, improve their general business effectiveness and expand market reach.  Coaching encourages highly engaged business owners and entrepreneurs to bridge the gap to recovery, and gives leaders the opportunity to strengthen specific business, communication, leadership or managerial skills.  We're with you every step of the way, supporting you in your business' progression to greater success and growth
