The Terrain Has Changed -
Back to In-Person
By Samantha Dowse; May 1, 2021
The world is opening back up. The number of people going out to restaurants and seeing relatives is creeping to a small majority, around 53%, and New York City is set to fully re-open July 1. We are re-emerging from a global pandemic that impacted each individual in a unique way. Some are coming back with unexpected loss weighing on them, some with energy and excitement and some with fear. There is impatience to return to pre-COVID times and hesitancy and doubt that those times could still exist. The impact of remote working, lockdown, extreme and enduring stress will continue to have impact on your team members, in seen and unforeseen ways. And everyone is emerging with a different perception and lens, especially if they have been working remotely.
Read some of the perspectives you might be facing at your company and learn about the mental impact of the pandemic, like brain fog and languishing. Remember as we move through these transitionary (and exciting!) months, lead with kindness and empathy.
