We’re working through times of extreme unrest and transition in the world. There’s no playbook for working during times of crisis. Turbulent times will always make us feel anxious and overwhelmed But we can – and have to – work through it. Join us on our journey to figure out how to do just that.
Over seven parts, WORKING THROUGH IT will delve into how people respond over time to drastic and unexpected changes. We’ll aim to take an honest look at why this has been such a difficult time for us all – but also at how better understanding human nature can help us chart a course for ourselves and our teams towards true, positive transformation.
