During Covid-19 we lost most of the informal connections in the workplace. Just think of accidental conversations at the coffee machine to iron out the folds, come up with great ideas together in the stairwell, meetings in the parking lot to discuss the last phone call of the day with the customer…. As you can see, connectivity is more important than ever.
To formally install these informal moments, we have to reinvent ourselves.
Ways to be able to co-create again and enjoy the energy that enters the room. We give some tips:
- Schedule daily check-ins, even several times a day.
- Schedule check-ins even without an agenda.
- Give co-creation some space.
- Consider a walk with a nice old-fashioned audio call and leave the video calling aside for a while.
How will you connect in 2021?
