Why is team building so important for the New World of Work?

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many organisations to shift to remote or more flexible working and although we don't yet know what the world of work will look like when the pandemic ends, it is safe to assume that remote and flexible working will become the new norm.

Although remote and flexible working has many benefits, it also puts immense strain on teams, which you and your organisation may have already experienced. Some of the largest challenges teams face in the New World of Work include:

  • Teams that traditionally communicate and collaborate face-to-face must adjust to communicating online
  • Individuals will be expected to be more independent, self-motivated and accountable
  • Onboarding new staff remotely can make it more difficult to develop an effective team

It has never been more important that teams know how to work well together and communicate effectively and team coaching can help you achieve this.


Managing mental health in challenging times webinar with David Beeney

12 May 2020

Our mental health has never been so challenged en masse as we struggle to cope with the coronavirus crisis. Below you'll find a recording of our webinar 'Managing Mental Health in Challenging Times' that took place on the 6th May. We hosted a Q&A with the inspirational David Beeney.

David was recognised in 2018 as one of the top 101 influencers globally on employee engagement, he is also a qualified Mental Health Counsellor affiliated to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Practitioners) and a trustee for Mind.

In the webinar we explored how to improve our own levels of personal resilience, as well as the best ways of keeping staff engaged, with particular emphasis on how to stay emotionally connected with remote workers.

Key themes we explored:

  • We explored ideas of how to create a kinder culture ‘remotely’ where people are caring, supportive and more empathetic of each other’s anxieties.

  • We looked at what is considered best practice for managers to inspire employees to remain engaged during exceptionally challenging times.

  • We looked at the importance of using the right language to encourage honest and open conversation about wellbeing.

  • We looked at how you can improve your own levels of personal resilience during challenging times.

  • We looked at how to inspire employees to be more open by saying ‘it’s okay not to be okay’ and by sharing our own vulnerabilities.
