RESTART: Planning Our Return

How to reintegrate and how to refine our strategy. Learning from the crisis and preparing for the future
Half day


When we return to our organisations after many weeks of remote working, organisational cultures will have shifted, people will be used to working in different ways and expectations will have changed.

Some new ways of working may have proved to be better, some of your core priorities may not now seem as relevant or achievable. Some staff will have stepped up to the challenge and developed new skills. Some staff will have been on furlough and may need help to adjust.

This three hour virtual workshop will give you great techniques to plan yet anothertransition as you prepare for a return to a post pandemic world.

How do you build on what you have learnt about yourself and your team and what's important for your organisation as you manage the return to this new way of operating?
