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!

It absolutely sucks. Therefore, it is better not to celebrate the failure itself but rather celebrate the lessons learned from it.
How many times have you heard of companies coaching candidates for ‘senior teams’, ‘top talent’ and ‘future leaders? That is, the ‘special ones’ who are worth coaching attention! Sure, there will be talent brewing who, with good coaching, will go from ‘potentially great’ to ‘actually great’. And some brilliant coaches do great work with senior teams. However, does a ‘coaching for senior leaders’ paradigm pass scrutiny, given how organisations are changing? Or is the potential of other staff hamstrung by a short-sighted view of who is worth investing in?
So, we write a monthly column for MT/Sprout, a Dutch media platform. Last month, we wrote about how our agendas are always packed full with meetings. We followed that with this month's column about how replacing all these meetings with e-mail is not a good alternative. Why? Because there is a big chance you will waste even more time and money. Allow me to explain.
