Staying Truly Connected: Weeks One and Two
Be the best you can be for each person: Personalising your approach for a wide range of individual responses to working remotely
Welcome to Weeks One and Two!
In these two weeks, we’ll ask you to work on how you can support individual colleagues so that they’re able to contribute not only to the team’s immediate work priorities, but also to important thinking you need to do together about your work in the future.
We suggest you work through the Hours in numerical order, and it’s up to you how you manage your time, whether in daily chunks or in more intensive blocks. Some of the activities are intended for you to work on an electronic device, but for most we encourage you to turn off your screen, and use pen and paper.
The Hours and linked activities are:
|Hour 1||How people show their needs differently||Matching colleagues’ behaviour with your responses|
|Hour 2||Planning for successful change outcomes||Identifying the change outcomes you need to work towards|
|Hour 3||Preparing to go the distance||Keeping your stamina topped up|
|Hour 4||Modelling the working climate for your team||Preparing a story you could tell to help some individuals|
|Hour 5||Meet with your Staying Truly Connected colleagues in Zoom||10-11.15am GMT, Friday 20 November 2020|
What makes leading and managing people in these times particularly complex is that we are all affected differently.
This programme is all about leading change successfully, so it’s time to think in more detail about the kind of change you have in mind.
Hour 3: Preparing to go the distance
Keeping your stamina topped up as you plan for the year ahead.
Your team will become all the stronger when you are prepared to show your own emotions.
Hour 5: Meet virtually at 10am GMT on Zoom
We’ll send you this link via email during Week Two. Please allow up to 1 hr 15 minutes for this final activity.
