In the current climate, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed/is changing when and how we work. Many of us are responding to changing work patterns and how we feel about them. Work styles have temporarily or permanently changed for many people and we now see:
- an increase in home working, including home working burnout and homeworking relief
- some people experiencing feelings of isolation and others enjoying solitary working
- some people returning to a workplace with their working relationships in need of being re-defined/re-developed
- a move from more flexible hours to more regular hours, and vice versa
- the possibility of further local physical distancing restrictions
- goggle eyes from virtual meetings, meetings, meetings
Left unchecked, this could lead to:
- Heightened anxiety and poor mental health, leading to an in increase in staff absence and resignations;
- An increase in the number of Complaints and Grievances;
- Decreasing outputs;
- Lowering levels of confidence and growing levels of ‘imposter syndrome’.
Restorative Thinking at Work presents key principles and skills that will help individuals and teams to navigate both the certainty and uncertainty ahead by putting relationships first and providing some techniques for helping to foster/nurture/develop positive working relationships.
