The Purpose Of The Office Has Changed

The pandemic has been an extended experiment for most companies who are trying to manage people working from home.

Instead of making it mandatory to attend the office physically like before, many companies have adopted a hybrid model where one could go to the office once a week and work from home the rest of the days.

This new approach changes the purpose of coming to the office.

Stashed ideas

4 IDEAS

Introverts Vs Extroverts

Some questions are fundamental: Fiction or Nonfiction? Cat person or Dog person? And this: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Each of these identities has its pros and cons, but no one can say that a particular one is better. Extroverts have long been celebrated and rewarded due to their natural people skills. Introverts are, strangely enough, proven to be better CEOs, though the confident attitude of an extrovert is better suited for the image of a CEO.

Responding rather than reacting

People with high emotional intelligence are more likely to understand the root cause of the problem and solve it in a calm manner instead of dismissing it as a nuisance.

When we respond rather than react we take the time to pause, perceive, and pursue the action that we think best for the scenario.

Transform Conflict Into A Growth Opportunity

Constructive conflict can lead to positive growth and transformation, along with the capacity for understanding ourselves and the world around us. It is helpful to recognize the reasons why we wish to avoid conflict.

For example:

  • I want to be liked by everyone.
  • It's better not to rock the boat.
  • I might strain the relationship.
  • I don't know what to say or do.
  • I would feel too awkward.
  • Use analytic techniques that don’t require high accuracy.
  • Prepare for multiple outcomes
  • Find and rely on the predictable elements of the situation
  • Focus your evaluation of initiatives on the inputs (the quality of the process that went into its planning and execution) not just the outputs 
  • Remain agile, and strive to respond quickly
  • You have to prepare for failure, success, and everything in between. But as long as others find you trustable, you’ll never be on your own
