What Has Changed?
How has your organization changed in these last several months, assuming that you are currently employed? What has changed in the way that you are working? You may now be working remotely, with all the technological challenges and social isolation that implies. Working from a screen for long periods can be a huge adjustment in the way you work if you are used to working face to face with your colleagues. The social network that you once enjoyed is no longer available other than through a video call. We have been thrown into a new way of working with little warning, and the change has been extreme.
How do companies adapt to such a radical change in the workplace? Organizations have been scrambling to make necessary safety adjustments for clients. People are working alternative weeks in shared office spaces to accommodate social distancing guidelines. The biggest change of course has been the rapid and massive shift to remote work, with different protocols for a new environment. These changes in business can create unique issues that coaching can address.
How Can a Coach Assist You?
How can a coach assist you now, given the rapidly changing circumstances? Through somatic coaching, you can develop tools to reduce anxiety, maintain a professional demeanor in the face of stress, and effectively manage your new business environment. Through coaching, you can address changing roles to become an effective leader during this transition, while maintaining your professionalism. Coaching is especially helpful for people whose role has changed significantly and unexpectedly in the face of the new business environment.
Somatic coaching can assist you in identifying tension in your body and learning ways to reduce it. Developing relaxation techniques for eye strain, or lower extremity fatigue can be addressed in a coaching session. You may extend your ability to work effectively by learning chair stretching exercises and how to adjust your posture while working in front of a computer. Somatic coaching can help you to discern body language on video calls to reduce barriers in communication.
