The Great Return

Wednesday, May 27, 2020 - Joe Kiedinger

It’s hard to believe this day has come! Now that the Safer at Home rules are being adjusted, there’s a lot of excitement in the air—and also a bit of fear. Many of us are about to re-enter the workplace after being at home for months. I, for one, can’t wait to see my Prophiteers in person. There’s just something to be said for the energy people give off when they’re together. We truly do feed off of one another.

As you head back to work and as things slowly get back to normal, just be aware of the gift of that energy. We human beings are truly communal creatures. We thrive when we’re together and are capable of amazing things when we collaborate. Appreciate it all! Because now that we’ve had a chance to live without personal connection, we can fully appreciate what we have.

Also, remember to be sensitive to those in your workplace who may not feel comfortable returning to the office immediately now that the governor has given the all-clear. Perhaps plan for an extension of working from home for those who are able. The small act of flexibility will create even more trust and goodwill in your organization.
