Understanding how your people feel and what they are truly thinking, experiencing has never been more important than it is today.
Julie Chakraverty, CEO at Rungway, the workplace advisory platform, and Helen Pitcher, OBE and Chairman at Advanced Boardroom Excellence discuss the issues, the challenges, the opportunities, providing insights and practical advice on how to better engage with your people and really understand how they feel.
Listen to the on-demand webinar here: No Turning Back: Leading Differently in 2021
Julie and Helen discuss some of the many challenges associated with employee wellbeing and how the challenges in personal and professional lives have been so much more impacted by the global pandemic. The pressures of uncertainty for the future, job security, juggling working at home with family, relationships, even many dealing with corporate loneliness and isolation.
Communication has changed and it also needs to change in its style and delivery - understanding personal context, being empathetic, more understanding, thinking differently and seeing a new aspect to your employees and colleagues - it might be the cat walking past the video camera, children interrupting meetings, dogs barking, the door bell and the ubiquitous Amazon delivery.
"As leaders we need to check in, much more personal, more thoughtful, when you interrupt people, although they are working, they are still at home. And as leaders how do we check-in and make sure our people are getting the right balance."
They explore how to better relate to employees, engagement, connectivity with the newly dispersed workforce. How to support not only those people who have been laid off as a result of these unprecedented times, but equally, how those who remain feel.
"Engagement has to be much much deeper now, as has organizational purpose become even more important to understand not only what we are doing but why, and how people fit in during this time of accelerated change."
How communication is so much more important than ever before, and not just broadcasting the message but listening to how people are doing, their challenges, how they are really feeling, and how maybe you can help.
