We also had our fourth financial wellbeing session that foused on 'Saving for goals, financial independence and your wellbeing' . You can watch the recording here.

Wellbeing

Emotions are amplified at work at the present time when everyone is so busy, there's less time for just being human & remote working blunts connection. There's great wisdom for leaders in this interview with Liz and Mollie on the power of emotion at work:

#VirtualCollaborate

Our #VirtualCollaborate programme supports the delivery of engaging and interactive #virtual sessions. This week Bev and Lynsey facilitated a session with colleagues from Leicester on the power of JamBoards. Here is a blog that will be of interest too.

Now we're running large sessions virtually on platforms like MS Teams Live, more people make comments/ask questions anonymously. This is not a good thing: critiques become criticism, we blame more & don't take responsibility; we don't learn: The Problem with Anonymous Feedback

As our need to collaborate virtually accelerates through #Covid19, I've created a "taxonomy" of virtual events. As we move from a phase that Steve Glaveski calls "recreating face to face online", to a phase he calls "adapting to the medium", we need to invest in new capabilities.

Change 

One of the models Helen uses most often, particularly in supporting leaders in large scale change, is the Arbinger Institute "outward mindset". On 17th November the Arbinger Institute is offering a free 45 minute webinar on applying this model in the #Covid19 era:

The "iceberg" model: a powerful way to think about systemic change. We tend to focus on events above the waterline but the key levers for change are mental models at deepest level. Here's an "iceberg canvas" to help identify each level:

Our pandemic world means we need to be able to spread change quickly. The most effective way to do this at scale is via online communities.Teams & projects just don't compare in terms of openness, participation, agility, diversity etc says Dion Hinchcliffe

Social Influence 

Most people get information about #Covid19 from social media so it's critical that science-based content is reaching us all. We've met @projecthalo part of the United Nations Verified Initiative. They're recruiting scientists working on covid vaccines to help get the message out.

And finally...
