As the pandemic comes under better control, corporate professionals are facing complicated decisions about returning to their former workplaces and routines. Likely shifts to a hybrid work model are evoking strong and diverse emotions. As people consider the implications of potential or probable scenarios, their professional and personal boundaries are becoming even more blurry. A return to the predictable routine and to office-based relationship-building is attractive, but at what cost? These are unprecedented times. Clearly, there is a lot to consider and the stakes are very high.
The “new normal” is unsettling, uncomfortable, and full of uncertainty. Any unfolding scenarios are likely to be fluid since there are not likely to be one-size-fits-all, steadfast solutions. Change — especially on a constant basis — is just plain hard. How can your organization’s leadership be thoughtful and supportive? Executive Coaching is an impactful, smart solution for partnership support.
