As people and organisations ease out of lockdown there will be a lot of work and challenges to address. People are nervous about their futures and with good reason. Many organisations are already facing tremendous financial pressure. The economic downturn is likely to be deeper and longer than we have experienced before. This is new territory for everyone.
More than ever there is a need to support, care, and listen which is exactly the role that mentors can play.
Now is the time to listen more than talk. Employees want someone to talk to, discuss issues and get help. Mentors need to reach out and offer that support.
Mentoring is an excellent, ‘reflective’ space for employees to retain perspective and focus on aspects of their lives that they can actually do something about.
In this practical, interactive, online workshop, Antoinette will share ideas and approaches you can use that promote positive coping strategies in others.
We will also draw upon the considerable experience of Change Management Institute members, to consider what helps people during times of uncertainty and change; and how we, as mentors, can add most value during these difficult times.
