"Kristi brings a positive, contagious energy to any room she enters. Her event on effective public speaking really connected, with her purposeful message and relevant examples. The presentation was interactive and engaging; every person left with a tangible takeaway. She made a point to understand her audience, and she challenged each of us to improve our public speaking. We could easily look to Kristi to provide a regular professional development series for our group!"

Re-Entry Package, Part 1 - Planning and Strategy

(posted: April 30th, 2020)

How are you doing?

I hope that you are healthy and that you are finding a new groove to your work.

As we adapt to the current situation and develop new, if uneasy, routines, I've been thinking about what you need from me, and how I can help you take action to prepare and reshape your organization for the new normal.

How can leaders be proactive, rather than just reacting?

One of the things that keeps surfacing in my conversations with clients and colleagues is the coming "re-entry". We don't know what the workplace will look like, but we know that the pandemic will end and there will be some kind of return to work, whether it's back to "business as usual" or is a "new normal" that blends elements from our WFH situation now with elements of the old workplace.

There are still many unknowns, but I always feel better, and calmer, when I have a plan, and when I can actually be doing something to move that plan forward. You can plan for the near future - what will re-entry look like? - while also developing a vision and strategy for further out - a year, two years, even five years. Plus, there are things you can be doing now to keep your employees engaged and ease that re-entry. Let's focus on the light at the end of the tunnel!

To help with all of this I've created a package of free resources especially for you, containing a combination of information, tips, suggestions, best practices, and even exercises. You can expect to see these arrive in your inbox over the next couple of weeks.

Broadly, I'll be covering:

  • Strategy and vision for re-entry and beyond
  • Maintaining morale and engagement
  • Leadership teams - enhancing your ability to communicate and collaborate
  • Operational changes and what comes next
  • Managers and leaders - supporting continued development

The first goodie is an article that really puts the whole idea of planning for the new world of work in perspective. Leaders, Do You Have a Clear Vision for the Post-Crisis Future?"

I hope you'll take the time to read it (it's not long!) and then come back and let me know what stands out for you. How can you adapt these ideas to help you plan for your business' future?

Next week: Engaging for impact!

Please don't hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance. We are all struggling with uncertainty right now, and sometimes it helps to simply talk through everything that's keeping you up at night!

The Re-Entry Package Series:

Stay safe & healthy,
Kristi
