10 | Kendra | Growth and Resistance to Change

 

Summary:

Jess and Kendra are back with another insightful show answering your questions.

 

Let’s look at some of the questions on today’s show. 

 

In the wake of COVID, when everyone is working remotely, how do we maintain our culture and a sense of team?

This is a tough one. While there’s no denying the benefits of remote work, perhaps the biggest challenge is ensuring that our connections and culture remain intact. You’ll learn why being more “intentional about sharing” is the best strategy at this time. You’ll also discover why quality conversations can help us simulate that real-world feel that so many of us are yearning for right now. 

 

I have a small team that is growing very quickly. What should I pay attention to on the people-side of things?

When an organization is growing at a scorching pace, that brings its own unique set of challenges. Project requirements will fast outpace the skill levels of your employees. As a result, they’ll struggle with your ever-increasing expectations.

 

As the organization grows, it becomes impossible for the CEO to know each of their employees on a personal level. This makes building a cohesive team culture increasingly difficult. In this episode, Jess shares her observations, thoughts, and wisdom on how you can avoid the usual pitfalls. 

Enjoy!
