  • I returned to the office today

    No Comments

    I recognised my need to separate work and home a couple of years ago and had invested in a cabin in the garden.

    When my son returned from university in March, way earlier than expected, he transformed my cabin into an architectural studio, the space became a hub of creativity with models and A1 drawings.

  • The HRsource Coaching Experience: A Client’s Perspective

    No Comments

    These exercises allowed a certain amount of frivolity, but also gave course to introspection. Whilst I was described as ‘Amazing’, ‘Adorable’, ‘Awesome’, ‘Alluring’, ‘Amicable’ (words which will describe any human) and gratifyingly not angry or antagonistic (which at certain times I’m sure I can be with my family), a few of these adjectives got me thinking. Some friends had found words which I hadn’t considered.

    The changes in March to May 2020 are unprecedented – many companies had to organise a 100% remote workforce in days. Whilst the recent government updates suggests a return to the workplace for some, the new normal will be very different, for an elongated period and working from home will remain part of our lives.

    The majority of employees worldwide have adjusted to a new way of working during COVID-19, yet leaders are being faced with supporting employees through a pandemic never seen in our lifetimes.
