What will the world look like after Covid-19? Will there be more working from home, more focus on looking after our communities, more concern for employee health and fitness, more online learning, more environmental awareness? Whatever the case may be, there will be a unique opportunity for change…if we prepare for it now.
How do we want our world to look when we return to work? What should we Leave Behind? What should we Keep? What New Things should we do? Let’s get ready to step over a ‘line in the sand’ into a new reality.
With people absent from work or working in new ways during self-isolation, the bonds to old habits, old routines, and fixed ways of thinking will be loosened. This presents a golden opportunity to question how things are done now, wipe the slate clean, and engage with work in new ways.
Now is the time to begin a conversation with your team about changing things for the better, so you are ready to transform things for the better on your return.
