Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): un levier pour mieux appréhender les changements !

Plus que jamais les entreprises doivent faire face à des changements profonds dans leur organisation et la gestion de leur travail. La crise sanitaire ayant exacerbé et accéléré ce processus, il a fallu repenser les rôles et responsabilités, gérer les émotions et adopter de nouveaux usages professionnels. Et les collaborateurs sont les premiers à être impactés, forcés pour beaucoup à sortir de leur zone de confort. Il faudra bien admettre ici qu’il n’est pas toujours évident de garder la maîtrise de soi et une ligne directrice dans ce genre de situation.

The Potential Value of Secret Santa

During any normal period, it is vitally important to ensure that the team works well together. This does not mean that everyone has to be best buddies. But team spirit needs to be preserved through informal contacts, social interaction and small gestures with a great personal effect such as “Secret Santa”. Let’s go through the way to achieve great things by creating a sense of belonging.

How is Your Team Coping with the Challenge of the Crisis?

“Be prepared” is the well-known motto of the scout movement, in actual fact most of us like to prepare ourselves for what is in store, it is an automatic mechanism to cope with a specific situation. However, when a crisis like Covid-19 strikes it is virtually impossible to prepare oneself, there is no comparable “data” to process, which of course causes a feeling of great uncertainty in addition to the wide range of health issues and economic worries already being experienced. The need to get one’s bearings becomes even greater and so the spiral turns and anxiety increases. There are several potential sources of reassurance ranging from the family, to the work environment, some people even turn to social media or expert advice. No matter the choice of source, it must be able to “deliver”, as otherwise the situation may become even more serious.

No Diversity Without Inclusion!

“Gratitude is an antidote to negative emotions, a neutralizer of envy, hostility, worry, and irritation. It is savoring; it is not taking things for granted; it is present-oriented.” – Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky Although everyone is familiar with the term gratitude, as with every expression there are a multitude of ways of interpreting its meaning, particularly in a professional context. As Dr Lyubomirsky says it can play a major role to counteract and prevent negative emotions, which are generally toxic und rarely beneficial. Gratitude is far more complex than a quick “thank you”, in fact if expressed in a superficial or inappropriate way a thank you can actually have a far more negative impact than most would believe. In order to express gratitude, one must have a clear understanding of what the challenge comprised what its completion really entailed and the employee’s starting position. Did the employee go that famous extra mile to complete the task, go beyond what they would normally have delivered – exceed expectations?
