The workplace has undergone enormous changes over the last two years. People have been forced to work remotely, there have been cuts in salaries and jobs, job security is non-existent and career planning seems like a distant memory for many.
Diligent, hard work at our jobs, has been our traditional norm. We would progress through the ranks, get regular increases and eventually retire with a sustainable pension after having had a financially and stimulating career.
WOW – What happened????
- COVID, caused economic implosions, recession and desperate greed.
- Loyalty is no longer a safeguard against redundancy, re-structuring and bottom line pressures.
- Corporates have had to become more ruthless to stay afloat.
- Stakeholders don’t care about the personal costs and consequences of the actions required to achieve the goals set.
- Governments have shown their power through lockdowns and the throttling of economic growth and progress.
Please do not mistake the above statement for absence of the need for necessary HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELL-BEING
- Your people are your most valuable asset.
- They are the fuel that powers the engine.
Yet – have we, as managers, stayed in touch with what it is that drives, thrives and even deprives our people.
We MUST get back to some form of extra-ordinary normality.
EMPOWERMENT and CAPACITY BUILDING must take Centre Stage
YOUR BOARDROOM brings a new perspective to simple Business Support in this Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world we face.
VUCA is the new REALITY!!!!!!
