Now’s the time to prepare your people and your business for a return to a post-COVID work world with updated hours, roles, and disrupted workplace cultures. Depending on your industry, your business will thrive only with mastery of remote, onsite, and hybrid workplace strategies for productivity and engagement.
People resist change. Stress, conflict, crankiness, and lack of productivity have been common in business in the time of Corona. They’ve worn masks, engaged in heightened hygiene rituals, and communicated via virtual technologies. Your team has learned to work remotely from home, and juggle dual roles of work and caring for children and/or vulnerable loved adults. Some have lost loved ones, colleagues, jobs, and job hours. All have lost a sense of certainty and the comfort of what is known.Good leadership requires that you, as a leader, communicate regularly, at least weekly. Email is not enough. Keep in touch through video calls, phone calls, texts, and emails. Team cohesion and company loyalty require communication about:
- ever-changing current status reports
- industry COVID advisory and best practices
- upcoming changes in your business
- plans for a return to some pre-COVID ways
- sharing strategies for innovation and implementation
