Female Company Director at desk thinking

This is a common dilemma we hear from many excellent CEOs. They are stuck in a conflict between caring for their staff and wanting them to deliver. That’s probably why we are often asked ‘What is the sweet spot where people are performing at their best without negative consequences for their wellbeing?’.

The impact of COVID-19 has presented many people with unexpected professional and personal challenges. In just a few weeks, the landscape of work and life has changed in ways that are yet to fully unravel.

While lockdown and furloughing have been an uncertain time, it’s also created the space to reflect on the lives we lead. How will we cope with the return to work pressures but also find the time to pursue possible new directions?

As organisations return to work and take stock of the past few weeks, the conversation is shifting from ‘how to work at home during lockdown’ to ‘what remote working will mean to the future remote based organisation’. It’s a far reaching strategic issue.


Returning to work after the Pandemic

The government has issued a ‘conditional plan’ to ease the lockdown which contains some guidance on returning people to work. People who cannot work from home should return to the workplace from Wednesday but avoid public transport. More detail is to be added but the call to return to work, for some sectors at least, has raised safety concerns.


Returning to work after the Pandemic

It’s been just 6 weeks since most organisations introduced mandatory working from home. It needed to happen almost overnight and, in most instances, it did. At the time we predicted that it would test organisations and their people like never before, which would require leaders to lead like they’ve never done before.


Blowing your own trumpet

A lot of people don’t want to be ‘that person’, the one who is always bragging on about how great they are, how good their work is and the ‘proven track record’ they have. However, in our wish to avoid being seen as arrogant or stepping on peoples’ toes, we can get left behind - along with the profile our great work could have given us.
