Love Letter from COVID to Team Members! I’m Ba-a-a-ck!

Team Members

Help your Team Members to be healthy.

Dear Business Owner, Thank you and your team members for hosting me these past three years. It has been fun terrorizing everyone throughout the world. Talk about a multicultural experience!

I’ve created a New Work Order to add to the chaos! I’m looking for your key team members.

Here are a few gifts I left behind for you:

  • FEAR, Baby!
  • Long-term recovery times with “fog brain”, neurological symptoms, and baby issues because Mom was pregnant and caught me.
  • Heightened fear and anxiety across the board
  • Children set back at least one grade
  • Jobs left behind
  • Fatigued workers
  • Dumbed-down social skills
  • Students and employees unable to focus
  • Lack of sleep and relaxation
  • No-Plan for the future
  • Please add your own!

These are unintended consequences I couldn’t avoid:

  • Appreciation for medical personnel and hospital staffs
  • Appreciation for essential workers
  • Appreciation for teachers

My cousins are due to arrive this holiday season. I hope you’ll have room to put them up. I hope you are prepared to run your businesses differently and treat your personnel with care. They’ve been through a lot­–I tested them frequently!

If you have not already taken stock of improvements to overcome my intrusion, now’s the time to take inventory. Consider these ideas:

  • Be sure your team keeps their hands washed and clean at all times.
  • Continue to sanitaize work and eating surfaces.
  • Be kind to people who call in sick so they don’t infect others.
  • Find cute masks, preferably ones with see-through sections to show off smiles.
  • Determine how many of your staff are vaccinated to see if you achieve “herd immunity.”
  • Pay your team a hazard bonus to show your appreciation when possible. Payment may be other than cash like time off, a gift certificate, or fun outing.

Until then, I will make an effort to see you again soon.

Love,

COVID

 


Coachcubas

As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
