one observation I have made is that incremental and frequent communication with staff has seemed to work well to bring people along rather than hitting people all at once with changes

We’re seeing physical depletion in the early afternoon.

We have different mindsets in the organization- development and humanitarian. Asking the development folks to now repond quicker has been challenging. Additionally, hiring and onboarding virtually, while seeking funding and dealing with current project shifts has been challenging.

We are seeing a lessening in ability to think,, and totally agree on afternoon energy depletion. I gave our small staff 5 hours of PTO each week, to manage as they need, to address all the demands on them.

Speaking to capacity - we went from a dozen laptops BC to nearly 150 AC. It's been a capacity shock but staff seem energized.

….would making this into a worksheet be helpful?
Randall Kempner
01:02:14
