The current global health event has changed the way we go about our daily routines and don’t believe anyone could have foreseen its impact both at home as well as the workplace. Leaders and managers are reacting to the unstable work environment as fast as possible with very little time to plan. Many are used to operating a certain way and this new normal has caused quite a bit of disruption. Are organizations open and ready to adapt for how we do business in this COVID – 19 era?
Teamwork has always been an essential capability for successful enterprises, but with today’s organizations undergoing disruption and digitization in an ‘innovate or die’ economy, it is now more important than ever that employees can collaborate effectively across geographical sites, between business functions and within increasingly fluid job hierarchies.
In a matter of a week, a virus well known as COVID-19 that loomed at the periphery of our consciousness rapidly pushed its way to the center of our daily lives. Businesses were thrust into a maelstrom of uncertainty, forcing them to reevaluate their current strategic plans. Almost immediately, a clear pattern emerged: locked down, retract and protect. Companies went to their economic downturn failsafe: cutting anything they deemed even remotely non-essential, from travel and discretionary spend to you guessed it training.
As the world of work continues to change rapidly, employers know that today’s best employees will be those who can adapt to change and face the never ending wave of challenges, not just be content with mastering technical requirements. In fact, a recent study predicts that by 2030, two in three jobs will require a greater focus on soft skills, not hard skills, as automation and globalization bring about a marked shift in the need for skills.
Managing a team of 20 was taking quite a toll on Nana. She wished there was a way she could make work a little more pleasant. Gazing at the sunset, she felt a sense of calm descending on her. Suddenly, her attention was captured by a flock of ibises flying in a V-formation. She was surprised to see the birds at the tail end and head were periodically rotated. She remembered her science lessons: birds fly in a V to save energy by drafting off each other. She laughed at the simplicity of it all. By sharing the responsibility of leading and picking up the slack, the birds had devised the perfect way to share the burden of flying amongst themselves. Nature held so many fascinations for her, but perhaps it was the lessons that it generously taught her that made it all the more important.
One person who can make or break your motivation to go to work every day is your ‘Boss’. Getting on the right foot with your boss is critical for your career as well as your well-being. During your career, you are likely to encounter different types of bosses who exhibit disparate leadership styles. Actively disengaged workers (those who hate their job, boss, co-workers, or all of these things) are 2X more likely to be diagnosed with depression.

From meeting strict deadlines to budget cuts to acquiring an aspired role to managing its responsibilities; work life often demands the employees to push their physical and emotional limits. Be it for organizational or personal goals, employees often feel the pressure of performing up to certain expectations. A state of such prolonged pressure or stress can lead to ‘burnout’, a phenomena that has become common in the corporate work culture.
The Covid-19 crisis has now reached a new critical phase where public health systems need to act decisively to contain the growth in new epicenters outside China.
