In this episode, Dean Newlund and Jen Hope discuss:
- What the pandemic taught us
- Making movement a part of life
- Building internal emotional resources
- Slowing down to listen
- The pandemic taught us that each one of us is human, even leaders. Moving forward right now means seeking new solutions instead of looking for a reference point in the past.
- Normalize movement in the workplace. Make it a part of people’s daily life that everyone doesn’t have to sit still on their chairs for their whole shift but each one is driven to move around from the start of our body.
- Think of self-care as building internal emotional resources. It’s not a luxury, it’s an essential – both for leaders and the people they serve.
- Slow down and pause to listen. We can’t hear our intuition if we’re running in every direction, going from one thing to the next.
“What I really wanna be mindful of when working with my clients is getting folks other skills… Generative versus reactive approach – drive and ambition, these are gifts. However, if we rely on them as the only two tools that we ever pick up, we’re going to hit places where this feels depleting versus generative.” — Jen Hope
