The virtual office has become very real. The frustration certainly is. 

Water-cooler chats have all but disappeared. We rarely eat lunch together. Opportunities to connect are lost as a result. Information flow, trust and relationships suffer.

Teams find it hard to integrate new hires. The chance to be recognized has shifted to those who are better at being visible in Zoom meetings, online presentations and even chats. This impacts performance, promotions, retention, salary, well-being and happiness. 

Informal events such as online pizza parties or beer tastings may help maintain a sense of community but rarely address key issues or solve personal conflicts, and cannot deepen trust.

We are immersed in a new reality. We seek alternative ways of connecting, working, and solving problems. But leaders still need to lead, projects need to get completed and invoices paid. But how? 
 
EXPLORERS offers effective, energetic and practical development to make this all possible.
