A Challenge represents an Opportunity:

Developing Your People While They Work Remotely During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The current disruption caused by the threat of COVID is impacting people in the areas of health, inconvenience, and fear.  Companies are forced to have office workers adopt a telecommuting or work-from-home mode of working to avoid large gatherings of people where disease can be more easily spread. As we’re becoming increasingly proficient with remote work, now the anticipation of relaxed social distancing guidelines is creating even more ambiguity and generating new anxieties within the workforce.

While technology makes distance work possible, it doesn’t change the need for people to be led, motivated, and feel connected. Plus, the seemingly endless layering of fears, anxieties and unknowns are driving the workplace, whether virtual or in-person, into a convergence of personal and professional personas.   A manager’s job keeps getting harder and the risk of losing people or people becoming distressed has gotten much higher. If it wasn’t clear before the pandemic, it is now: the manager’s responsibilities have officially extended beyond a transactional relationship into a wholly connected relationship.

Your People Your Solution has for years specialized in delivering coaching and other people-focused solutions to clients around the world by using technology to connect, develop, and transform people.

Based on our experience, we feel that there are three elements to effectively manage through this time when your workforce is geographically distributed and craving emotional structure.

  • Enable leaders to better manage a distributed team
  • Build a sense of team among distributed team members
  • Coach individuals so they grow and flourish during this time. With many of our people working remotely and with more time on their hands, now is the time to invest in coaching and development, at a customized and reasonable cost.

Here are our offerings in each of these realms:

Employee Coaching: “Coaching for Success” – Program of ongoing, individual and/or team virtual coaching sessions for employees and managers.

Vent and Reinvent Coaching Session: Available for any employee who is feeling stressed, anxious, stuck, frustrated, demotivated or isolated. This one-time session when needed and will serve as a source of fresh air while helping reinvent the internal narrative, creating a new one that feels better and is action-oriented.

Remote Manager Class: “Managing a Geographically Distributed Team” – Manager training via webinar.

Manager Expansion: Manager training sessions for managers using techniques and practices to integrate connection and humanity into their teams.

Employee Investment Sessions: “Lunch and Learns for a 21st Century Workforce” – Series of employee webinars on various personal and professional growth topics

“I’m not alone”, group meetings: Imagine the format of a study hall but over zoom and with a coach who is there to keep you motivated. The employees will know times available when they can log in and think and work together while being motivated by a coach who can keep you moving forward and increase productivity.

Professional Development virtual Book Club: We will be starting soon a zoom professional development book club where we all read the same book during two weeks and then have a discussion facilitated by a professional coach on how the book applies to our professional life.

Planning for the future in a world of uncertainty:  Coaching sessions to plan for the future as all the pieces around us are moving. We will tackle and leverage on the few things that we can still control and use the uncertainty in our advantage while we make sure that we keep moving forward.
