Uncertainty can wreck havoc in any change situation, because people like to know “where they are at”. The more unanswered questions there are, the more tense the situation becomes. This is when CSR comes into play.

Mindfulness at work is about creating an awareness that helps you to accomplish more within a shorter time. It helps you to become more present and attentive which again helps you engage with your team and work at a deeper level.

Several months ago, when companies were thrust into lockdown at relatively short notice there was just enough time to get equipment sorted. Then the next important challenge to tackle was to ensure that everyone had access to some form of central data base, once these considerations had been taken into account, everyone concentrated on “getting the job done”. As no one knew how long this would continue for, there did not seem to be any need to start (re)defining communication strategies. As a result, many companies experienced the rise of usage of a multitude of communication channels both internally and externally. At internal level, staff resorted to methods they already knew, for example by creating WhatsApp groups, Slack channels or even in some cases Facebook groups. They needed to find a quick, efficient way of keeping in touch with colleagues. At an external level, some companies were sufficiently agile to be able to adapt to virtual methods, quickly setting up webinars to stay in touch with their client base and publishing online newsletters to share expertise and maintain interest in their products and services. Others were not able to follow suit, as their staff or internal structures were quite simply not able to adapt so quickly – and anyway “it would only be temporary…. soon everything will be back to normal”…. Several months later, most of us are still not able to attribute a clear definition to what is “normal”, but we have all come to appreciate that it definitely is not the same as it used to be. There is much talk about the “new normal” and this needs to be taken into account with respect to communication, just as is the case for personnel questions and company strategy.

We have all been in crisis mode for months, is there a risk that too many people are currently concentrating on the immediate effects of the crisis and are losing sight of any potential advantages there may be? To quote André Gide “When a door closes, there is one that opens. Unfortunately, we spend so much time looking at the closed door that we don’t see the one that just opened.” This may be easy to state when so many different companies are facing the ruins of everything they built up over the past years, but without this kind of approach no country would ever have been resurrected after a war or another kind of catastrophe.

The recent crisis saw many workers obliged to change to digital working methods from one day to the next with very little time for preparation – in fact in many cases there was a scramble to even acquire the necessary hardware before shops were closed down for several weeks. Employees were literally thrown into a major change. In many cases, companies had probably previously rejected/postponed such changes on several occasions with the reasoning that the company’s processes and staff were not yet ready for such drastic change! All change specialists know that successful change needs to be well-prepared, so how could it be possible to achieve so much at such short notice? One answer is that under a crisis situation most people function in a sort of overdrive modus and rise to the moment, coping with challenges in the face of which they would normally have paled. Here the word to note is “coped”; they adapted, they fitted in, they showed great flexibility, but that does not necessarily mean that the outcome remains suitable as a long-term organisational structure.
