Ernest Hemingway said, “We’re stronger in the places that we’ve been broken.”
That’s never felt more relevant to us. The world feels heavy. There’s instability in markets. Change continues to be a constant and organizations are racing to keep up.
As leaders, how are you supporting your teams during constant change?
Play it out for a minute!
Are your team members unable to disconnect because they are minutely focussed on world events that none of us can control?
Maybe they are under stress that relates to their own families and stressful pandemic lives?
How do we as leaders identify these emotions, provide an empathetic environment and the space to process, while also keeping our talent productive and focused?
Here’s a secret that has helped multiple teams that we have worked with at Doodle Breaks:
Kindness boosts productivity and motivation.
Research by the Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service of Canada (APEX) found that teams in a respectful, kind environment possess 26% more energy. These teams are 30% more likely to feel motivated and enthusiastic about acquiring new skills and being exposed to new ideas.
How can you promote kindness in your work environment?
Are there times when uncertainty overshadows your ability to promote kindness?
This is where Doodle Breaks can help.
By experiencing the act of mindful doodling, your team members gain the space to take a healthy break and disconnect which leads them to renew their energy and re-focus on what’s important.
