As we move from this stay safe at home stage to life beginning to open back up how are you feeling?
I expect the answer to this question will fluctuate from moment to moment.
For us at Fairway there is excitement about being able to meet again with family, friends and clients and some apprehension – what will the future look like?
Also relief that we and our loved ones are well, regret for saying farewell to the slower pace of life we have adopted, gratitude for the lessons learnt and so it goes on; and of course we are very rarely aligned in our feelings, both feeling different things at different times.
The past few months have been so unusual that we will all have been transformed in some way, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t think standard change theories really describe the emotions we have been experiencing. These models all seem to lead us to expect an end point rather than the transient nature of society now.
At Fairway HQ we have been working hard to adapt our proposition to best meet the ever-changing needs of our clients. We seek to provide timely, impactful learning in a way to suit you.
As part of this new offering we are excited to introduce the EASE model. Designed to help you manage yourself and others through the coming months as we work together to restart society.
Whilst we will all recognise the 4 stages of EASE we may not experience them in a linear way.
We might recognise moving forward and backwards depending on our circumstance and perspective. This is normal and we are likely to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
So how can EASE help you?
We have developed a range of solutions to support you, your teams and organisations to build resilience, develop techniques and plan to remain effective regardless of which stage you or others are in. You may prefer coaching, action learning, a facilitated group session or a combination of all 3. We can tailor the program to best suit you.
Contact us now to explore how to EASE yourself and your teams through the next few months.
