Things to think about
- Being stuck at home creates a bubble that’s easy to stay in. Try break out of it and communicate something nice to a colleague to make their day special. Try setting up a regular time in the day to have a 30 minute coffee with a friend.
- When you communicate encouragement, your colleagues feel seen and appreciated. It allows them to feel understood even when they are apart from the team.
- Extend empathy. We often don't know what someone is going through, being able to understand how another is feeling brings us together. Building in 'social time' is important so clear your mind of work and give time to building relationships!
