Working in isolation: what does good look like?
Day Five: How are you doing?
We’re now a few weeks into the crisis but we know very little about its eventual impact or when it will end. One thing that COVID-19 has brought is time, and it’s a good moment to take stock and consider the effectiveness of your actions so far. What else we can you do to build the resilient organisation and the resilient workforce that will survive the current crisis?
It’s also a very good time to take a much harder look at those less than optimal practices embedded in your organisation and to position yourself to stride ahead in the post COVID-19 world .
Here is how we can help:
- Let’s talk. As a not-for-profit company we’re very willing to listen and to offer any advice we can without charge. We’re also in contact with many companies across Europe and can help to share experiences of how other are coping and surviving. Contact us.
- Take a sounding. Are your employees experiencing workplace practices, such as those outlined above, that will keep them engaged and productive in these difficult times? Our Workplace Innovation Diagnostic® employee survey measures employee experiences of workplace practices strongly associated with high performance and well-being. It’s been especially adapted to help you strengthen your organisation to meet the challenges of COVID-19.
- Empowering yourself. Our ILM-accredited Workplace Innovation Practitioner Programmes provide you with the knowledge, skills and practical resources to lead transformative and sustainable change in your organisation. And this might also be a good time to enhance your emotional intelligence as a leader, developing new ways of inspiring and engaging your people whilst building your own resilience. We can help with emotional intelligence profiling and coaching to help you develop your effectiveness as a leader.
- Stay connected. Look out for the webinar programme on our News & Events Page and join Fresh Thinking Labs, the online forum that connects you to experts and practitioners at the leading edge of workplace innovation.
Above all – please stay in touch. We’ll help in any way we can.
