It seems we’ll be in varying degrees of lockdown for the foreseeable future, but the impact on working life hasn't all been bad.
I have had the same conversation with 5 Directors in the last month… and it goes like this:
‘Actually, some things have improved in lockdown despite the issues.
Honestly, I feel invigorated by the pace of decisions to make’.
They all describe an increase in the speed of decision-making, a reduction in unhelpful ‘committee’ conversations, improvements in the speed of communications and being trusted to just flippin’ get on with it.
This time has been rejuvenating to many – being able to see a tangible difference to make in the day.
Despite the confusion and personal sacrifices of a pretty awful time, it seems there have been some positive lessons to take away. And we owe it to everyone to learn them.
So, what’s been different?
Call it like it is
So, how do you turn the temporary gains into a permanent shift?
A future to look forward to
So, have a think about the lessons you’ve learned from lockdown so far and how you’re going to make them count.
