Let’s do work differently.
The last 2 years of the COVID pandemic have reshaped much of our world. One of the most dramatically altered is the relationship between employees and businesses.
Consistency and trust have melted away. Remote working and the likelihood that flexible working arrangements will continue has damaged team dynamics and collaboration.
Employees at all levels have had the opportunity to re-organise their priorities. And no surprise that dedication to work and willingness to put in long hours week-after-week has slipped down the list.
Rising individualism and a ‘me over we’ mentality is stressing empathy between colleagues and presenting new challenges to leadership.
Responding to this in ways that re-establish team cohesion, collaboration, innovation and alignment so your business is able to meet challenges and sustain effective performance requires two key realisations:
- Leadership must become more empathetic, emotionally open and connected, registering the shift in employee priorities and ambitions as well as the desire for more agency.
- Organisations must prioritise re-setting workplace culture in a way that balances the flexibility demanded by individuals with the needs of a productive team, in ways that nourish the greater good of the organization. This means designing-in values, rituals, roles and systems that support creativity, diversity and inclusive trust-building.
