Going to be different going forward

What was it like the first time you went out “socially”? It was a little unsettling for me, and it will be strange to wait for an elevator, go to the break room for coffee, and be with people who aren’t family. This is going to be different for each of us. We need to be prepared to see a hybrid workforce with people making different choices and as leaders we need to be attuned to people who are at different comfort levels for in-person gatherings and we need to be responsive to new, more flexible, work options. In this video I share ways to support new practices to provide our team mates a healthier work/life balance and realize that these new working models are strategic intents centered on aligning people with purpose while valuing their personal needs to create a productive and happy worker.

You set the tone with your team demonstrating respect, integrity, and connection. As different as every employee is so will the response be to a hybrid work model. You must be comfortable in leading the change knowing there isn’t a standard solution yet being intentional in creating a transparent, open space to work and live from.  It’s going to be different going forward and embracing the hybrid framework will result in improved retention, engagement, and performance. If you would like to talk more about how this framework can be used in your organization let’s Zoom or send me an email and keep the conversation going!  I’d enjoy talking with you about how we can partner to strategically develop your team.

Are you ready for the next remote?

As we begin to return to work the question is what will we do if we have to return to a remote space again. Are you and your organization ready to work in this flexible work model, a new kNOW?  Flexibility is what more than half of the respondents rated #1 in LinkedIn’s latest Workforce Confidence Index, more important than health coverage or pay. The balance, and quality, of life is a topic we are having, and organizations need to be planful to retain, and attract, employees.  In this video I highlight 3 key areas that can create the seamless employee experience leading to improved productivity.  These highlight the need for leaders who can look beyond the walls and can work, plan, and adjust to a flexible, remote, and virtual workforce.

What does “back to work” really mean?

What if returning to the office isn’t an option for you right now?  From family to personal needs what does it mean if you are the leader of a team returning to the office and you can’t join them?  In this video we look at the personal process to consider and the role you can lead with to redefine what work is creating the opportunity to build trust and create a culture that values the work being done more than the chair being sat in.  Going back to work is going to be different for every person and this video highlights how this can be a positive process.

Check out the video and see how we can begin this process by realizing that how and where we work is changing but our shared purpose will keep us aligned and allow us to remain productive independent of time and place.
