Perhaps this coming month with work, you might;

  • Organise a virtual ‘tea break’ with colleagues. Or if you are returning to your workplace, why not have a face-to-face morning tea (social distancing respected). I’ve organised one for tomorrow morning, to welcome a team mate who has not been able to fly down due to lock down until now. I hope they like their surprise.
  • Focus on being kind rather than being right.
  • Check in on someone who may be struggling & offer to help
  • Actively listen to what people say, without judging them
  • Show an active interest by asking questions when talking to others.

Where ever you are around the globe, I hope that the actions from this month’s calendar, will help support yours and others career management plans, selfcare and wellbeing throughout the coming month and beyond.
