Hello <<First Name>>,

Changes within culture happen slowly. Until the past few years, we have had a top-down model of work that has been in place since the industrial revolution. 

Then change happened and we start adopting a new approach to work that works for our adapting culture. And while the change was happening quickly, in terms of organisational speed, it was still a gradual thing. 

If we use the parable of the hare and the tortoise, the change from top-down leadership to a more horizontal approach has been a bit like the tortoise. 

And then coronavirus came along. As you may have guessed, this is the hare. It's sped through changes that we've been carefully building towards. Overnight, every organisation across our country (and even the world) has had to adapt to the fast, sudden change in the way we work. 

It has been seismic. 

But as we know with the story, the hare will eventually run out of steam letting the tortoise plod on as ever towards the finish line. 

This seismic shift in how we work presents us with a new opportunity to build on the rapid changes but at a more manageable speed. And decide what kind of team culture we want to create. 

It's exciting stuff. Have a read of this month's blog to find out more.
