Working from home week counter: 4 weeks
Current Work Context: Coaching an IT Digital Workplace department of 12 people. One team, all team members working remotely from home. The whole company is working from home too.
What brought me to write this post?
The past four weeks have been a great source of inspiration for me. I saw teammates helping each other like never before, leaders working side by side with team members, companies making decisions based on their people first, people showing what before was their private lives with pride to their colleagues, virtual gatherings just for the sake to help one another, gratitude, compassion and empathy everywhere. I have experienced profound change at the personal and the interpersonal level. The world has become something totally different from what it was before this pandemic.
Today, I dedicate this article to us, all of us. Regular people who have become more resilient, human, kind, compassionate, self-aware about our basic needs, confined to exercise, meditate, breath and play with our families, rediscovering love that was hidden behind our daily routines, our constant need to go quicker. Today, I celebrate 4 weeks of life changes, only possible because of our willingness to stop the spread of a mortal virus together.
The past month experiences have made me wonder:
- Isn’t this a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, for all of us?
- How much learning and growing has occurred?
- How much pain, uncertainty and suffering in just a month?
What if …
- I continue growing togetherness at home and everywhere I virtually go?
- I keep learning and growing inside? What could happen within the next month?
- We take a moment to retrospect about what has happened within the past month and learn from it?
- We take a moment to bring our support to those whom have lost someone thanks to Covid-19?
My invitation is to find ways to grow togetherness starting today
I personally thank you for reading this article, I celebrate your courage and resilience.
Now that you know a little more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around you, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:
- What could you do to expand togetherness?
- What have you learned within the past weeks?
- How do you want to remember this pandemic in the future?
- Take a look around you and try to identify those people who might need your support and ask yourself what would I do to be present for that person?
Please stay at home, take a deep breath, keep yourself safe, and remember that:
We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
