We have learned a lot about COVID-19 in the past few months and we are still learning and adapting. Agility is the “key” to adapting quickly and effectively to the new COVID-19 environment – and to maintaining and refining. Our Leaders, Teams and Organizations must optimize Agility to continue to operate and evolve. According to McKinsey: Agility is the ability of an organization to renew itself, adapt, change quickly, and succeed in a rapidly changing, ambiguous, turbulent environment. How can we develop Agility while we are in the middle of a pandemic? The Agile Model ® Suddenly there are many approaches to Agility in the market … however only a few have been around long enough to test, learn, invest and demonstrate success.
The Agile Model ® was originally developed by Dr. Agility in individual leaders, teams or organizations is driven by five critical capabilities: Anticipating Change, Generating Confidence, Initiating Action, Liberating Thinking, and Evaluating Results. Adapting to the Hybrid Workplace after a Year of Change. Over the past year, teams have had to cope with an enormous amount of change in both their personal and professional lives—so now, with vaccinations rolling out, it’s no surprise that people are hoping to return to some semblance of normalcy.
But we’d argue that rather than going back to the old routine, organizations are about to go through another set of big changes as teams adapt to the hybrid workplace. As noted in our State of Work report, 63% of workers want to continue working remotely, at least part-time. To navigate this transitional period, managers must establish policies and frameworks that allow people to do their best work, regardless of where they are. In particular, leaders should evaluate: Resources. Given everything teams have gone through thus far, the thought of implementing these additional changes can feel overwhelming, and people may display different degrees of reticence—yet it’s essential if the hybrid workplace is going to be a success.

How to reenergize your organization to overcome pandemic fatigue. March 1, 2021Pandemic fatigue is real: Some 75 percent of employees in the U.S. and close to a third in the APAC region report symptoms of burnout.

Encouragingly, companies are waking up to the need for greater compassion to unleash the full potential of their people. There are no easy answers, but these five actions have shown to be effective in reenergizing organizations. Listen deeplyLeaders looking for solutions should start by listening.

And while the future of the traditional "8-to-5 workplace schedule" is uncertain, there are both positives and negatives regarding the new approach to getting work done. One of those negatives is that the workforce is currently down 500,000 more women than men compared with before the pandemic began. Bureau of Labor Statistics' data have consistently shown that the labor force participation rate has shrunk more among U.S. women than men, translating into 2.3 million fewer women and 1.8 million fewer men in the workforce in February than were there a year ago.

Between a global pandemic, economic crisis, social unrest, and political upheaval, the past year has been physically and emotionally draining for just about everyone, and perhaps most for essential workers. Across industries, workers struggling with pandemic fatigue are facing burnout more than ever. For leaders, keeping these employees engaged and motivated is a challenge in itself.

How the pandemic transformed digital manufacturing.
In 2020, industrial digitization faced its biggest test to date.
Confronted with the largest health and economic crisis in recent history, companies across sectors were forced into extraordinary measures to protect their people and maintain operations.

The COVID-19 crisis has reminded business leaders that a more capable workforce creates more resilient companies.
Even before the pandemic struck, organizations faced a dizzying pace of change and the ever-present risk that today’s best-performing companies could be tomorrow’s vanquished ones. Against this backdrop, the virus and its shocks have shown how the capabilities and mindsets of an organization’s workforce provide a foundation for resilience and successful adaptation.
Sadly, though, the traditional approach to corporate training was broken long before the pandemic arrived. How to Do a Virtual Company Holiday Party the Right Way. Normally at this time of the year, companies are hiring caterers, setting up on-site casinos or party games, and inviting employees to cut at least a little bit loose to celebrate. This year doesn't exactly feel like one to celebrate though. It's certainly no time for a large in-person gathering. And doing the easy alternative--setting up yet another all-hands, all-muted Zoom--would feel like the equivalent of hosting a lecture instead of a holiday party. Cassi Hansen, vice president of people operations at the Nerdery, a digital consultancy in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Phoenix, realized a few months into the pandemic that while Zoom was functional for large staff meetings, its novelty had faded for networking or team-building events.

Everyone is doing their best. Survey: Diverse employees are struggling the most during COVID-19—here’s how companies can respond. Almost a year into the COVID-19 crisis, employees are still crying out for more support. Diverse groups—including women, LGBTQ+ employees, people of color, but also working parents—are having the hardest time, both in the workplace and with balancing work and home life. To understand the challenges diverse employees are grappling with in the COVID-19 environment, we recently conducted surveys and interviews and examined data across 11 developed and developing countries (see sidebar, “Our survey methodology”).
We discovered that workers across demographic groups and geographies reported a remarkably similar set of challenges related to mental health, work–life balance, workplace health and safety, a missing sense of connectivity and belonging with colleagues, and concerns about job opportunities. However, there were also differences. The severity and prevalence of these challenges, such as with mental health, were far higher in developing countries than in developed nations.
