These Covid times have tested all of us in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and helping each other through the ups and downs has been a focus for the Powerplant team. With the support of Amanda Purnell from Springfox, we took part in a series of high impact, practical learning sessions designed to measure and assess our individual resilience and teach us how to build on areas where we can be better.
Of great value to us was the resilience diagnostic report which gave each team member a point-in-time resilience score along with practical suggestions of ways to try and build resilience. Following three resilience sessions the diagnostic report will be repeated and next steps planned.
The sessions so far have been a great way for us to share our concerns, recognise we are all facing challenges and get some practical support.
Some questions we had were:
How to be focused during working from home and how to know when you should switch off/take a break?
Where does Powerplant team sit based on this assessment comparing to other businesses in the same industry, what are our strengths and weaknesses?
Tips to stop worrying about stuff we cannot control?
Suggestions for how we can create a separation between work and life after hours especially now as we work from home.
Any ideas on getting better night sleep?
