Although some people are used to remote working for many it is something new that we have to get to grips with. Some find that the necessary adjustments come naturally to them, for others the new situation presents challenges. So, how can we, as owners or employees help ourselves and our teams make the most of remote working in ways that suits the organization, and also the individual involved?

There is little doubt that change is upon us in 2020. But before we all rush to get back to a pre-Covid normal maybe it’s time to redesign something better for ourselves, our businesses, and our planet.

As Arthur Ashe, Tennis champion and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient wisely said:

Most people resist change, even when it promises to be for the better. But change will come, and if you acknowledge this simple but indisputable fact of life, and understand that you must adjust to all change, then you will have a head start.

In stressful times with much uncertainty to contend with, it is no surprise that some of us are losing the feeling of excitement and passion for our businesses. However, there is good news even in these difficult times; you can reconnect with the passion that led you into your business, and in the process create a new balance in your life.

Humankind has benefited immensely from technology but as we move towards an ease in the COVID-19 lockdown constraints in some parts of the world we need to ask ourselves: is our modern way of operating what we really want? Will the long-term effect on our way of living be a positive one?

The decisions we make will have a long-lasting effect – particularly on our younger generation and the leaders of tomorrow.

Around the world, countries are still in lockdown. In the UK, the process of reducing restrictions is starting. However, this cannot be regarded as a return to normal. Businesses need to think of the changing situation as moving forward into a new normal. Handling this, with the continuing reality of Covid-19, will require resilience and adaptability from business owners.

When Covid-19 struck there were many things for businesses to think about. For the last few weeks, most have been fire-fighting: making provision for team members working from home; analyzing the various forms of government help and evaluating how best it can be applied in our particular businesses; projecting the immediate and the longer-term financial impacts. Simultaneously, we’ve had to make changes at home: deciding how best to look out for vulnerable relatives and friends; learning what two meters look like; unexpectedly having to take on educating our children and entertaining them — all day long.

The world is different. But not unrecognizably so. The future we thought we were heading for is different too. But it is more likely to be one with fully stocked pasta shelves than Hunger Games. So, when we get back to normal or become accustomed to a close-as-we-can-get-to-normal interim period, you and your business need to be fit-for-purpose. And you will need to make sure your customers know it.

In business, we have to keep managing in the face of the threat posed by Covid-19. As lockdown continues, many of us, both business owners and employees, are feeling much more anxious than usual. It’s easy for this to become a downward cycle of worry, lethargy, and depression. The threat is real, and we can’t make it go away. What we can do is boost our resilience, finding ways to keep our spirits up.

Two principles are particularly useful. First, managing anxiety takes mental strength and energy, if we don’t actively recharge, we will become depleted. Secondly, the state of our morale affects the state of our immune system (At this point I have to say this doesn’t mean that anyone who becomes ill wasn’t positive enough!). So, if we pro-actively attend to our morale, we are also pro-actively attending to our health.

8 Tips for Keeping Up Morale

What was our first reaction to the news of the Covid-19 pandemic?

A wave of disbelief, that disrupted our normal working patterns significantly and maybe irretrievably.

This, unwanted shunt of nature has caused heartbreak and isolation to many. The energy we all feel right now is sadness, anxiety, despair, uncertainty, and lack of control. Lockdown with our families does not replace the energy of our work teams and our colleagues and we can feel as if we have been caged.

So how do we find some uplift or precious sustenance, for our new journey ahead?

These are, indeed, unprecedented times! It’s important, therefore, to know where you stand contractually and what legal implications there may be if you cannot provide services to others or they cannot provide services to you that are contractually bound to be fulfilled. As with all contracts, they have to be legally enforceable agreements.
