It is that time of year again where we reflect on the past and look forward to the new. The economy is improving, allowing organizations to refocus their attentions on growing their companies and getting back on their feet after several difficult years.
One of the causalities for many businesses during the last few years has been a loss of trust and connection with their teams. Every company had to dig deep and adjust to their circumstances, and that required asking a lot of their people. Downsizing, taking on more responsibilities, and doing more with less were all common themes. Now that things are improving, businesses are turning their attention back to re-building their cultures, re-visiting their values, and finding ways to re-engage their team.
