The Team Building 101 series : Lesson 2 now available

How to monitor your team’s wellbeing?

It is the state of your team that interests us this week in the context of the Team Building 101 series. When we define ourselves largely by our work, which a large proportion of us do, we tend to prioritize the mission of our companies to our wellbeing. Working in a culture of speed where being overwhelmed is the new norm can mean being submerged by the amount of initiatives and changes … that until we can’t do it all anymore. 

Then comes the medical leave of absence. A leave that costs the employee dearly in terms of the impacts it has on her or his experience.  A leave that directly impacts the business. These costs go far beyond. The objective of the reflection that we propose is not to breakdown the costs but rather to encourage you to play your role as a leader and to be vigilant, benevolent and in these times of COVID to act as a unifying leader. Enjoy!

We may have been forced to practice physical distancing however that did not mean we would avoid getting together to go inside the organisation. We are speaking metaphorically. Words are important. We were not social distancing. We have been Normandin Beaudry’s partners since 2016 to help with their cultural evolution. Culture is as social as social gets. Too many organisations fear losing their pre-pandemic culture because of remote work.

Here’s the story of an innovative collaboration.

A true pandemic adaptation success!
