How did Covid19 impact your work?
Is COVID-19 changing the way your team works for the better or making it worse? We want to hear your STORIES!
Professor Mike Lee from INSEAD and Koen Veltman from OrganizationBuilders are collecting stories and data on how COVID-19 has prompted positive (or negative) changes in the way you and your team work, whether that's in the way you coordinate, manage, lead, communicate, experiment, and connect with each other.
We'd love to hear from you! It will only take 5-10 minutes. TAKE THE SURVEY HERE: https://lnkd.in/gJYZ7kV
We hope to share the results (and facilitate a virtual gathering to discuss them) in the next couple of weeks so please respond if you're interested and stay tuned!

Social capital and social networks are becoming increasingly important in today’s economy at large, and for individuals within organisations. For my MSc dissertation in Organisational Psychology, I researched how newcomers transition into a self-managing organisation (Lee & Edmondson, 2017), an organisation where authority is decentralised and classic manager-subordinate relationships are absent.
It’s all about your people. Now more than ever. But in knee-jerk reactions to the coronavirus many companies are laying off large numbers. I want to shout out to the shareholder-value managers driven by their spreadsheets: “This is not only inhumane. It is bad for your business!”. Why? It will harm your company. Companies that treat their people best in bad times emerged as winners in the past.
"Nothing reveals character like a crisis." We wrote this recently and, as predicted, during the Corona crisis, companies revealed their true colors. Recently, we highlighted the bad. So let's turn to the good, and highlight organizations that not only talk about putting people first, but also walk their talk. Let's applaud those that put their money where their mouth is in difficult times.
