Teams need a shot in the arm
WFH has replaced WTF as the new banter if not a three letter cuss word." Being 'zonked' than 'zoomed' has become the new whine.
Early lockdown was all about training, skill upgrade, mentoring, and mutal empathy, truly socially distanced on Virtuo-Platforms.
Surprisingly, remote working mavericks could adapt better as they were sensitized to
' on the go ' working, not really bounded by the 9-5 syndrome.
Teams did require cohesive herding, those engrained with an ' in-built- work mode'- switch as opposed to flexible remote working which didn't seem congruent to time, location or geography.
Getting proactive with ideas
So, the big question that faced us. Would clients Stonewall us? Was this the end? Should I transcend into different businesses? Teams? Vendors? Resources?
Network? Et al!
Clearly chaos set in, semantics disturbed, and fortified domains threatened to be castled. Introspection revealed the following 5 commandments that we now submit to and swear by:
Ideas are your eternal succour to illuminate growth
Evolve we must, adaptation is sacrosanct
The platform we stand on is trust of our clients
Technology is not a one night stand
Communication is a two way street
The recourse to all this entrapment was the digital space. Social media was ablaze with creativity, thought sharing, ideas, sarcasm. A mixed bag of buzz and barrage.
Lockdown unleashed talents and virtual became the new real.
The traffic on the Information superhighway was log-jammed with infotainment.
