Hello <<First Name>>,

This has been a pretty tricky Sunday newsletter to write. Why? Because we know that everyone who reads this will be in a different situation.

Collectively we are all united in fighting unprecedented challenges, but personally, we all face different circumstances.

Health workers, people living alone, people working, people not working, families separated and parents just trying to keep up with Joe Wicks and home-schooling. All the needs are different, and there is no single thread for a newsletter. 

We're not easily beaten though.  Here at MCH, we like to tackle challenges head-on. And we formed a plan B.

This month the newsletter contains a greater list of resources and reading. It'll feel more jigsaw-like than normal but we know you'll forgive us. Some of it may be helpful to you right now and other bits you may find more useful in a day, or a week's time. Which is fine, use it when you need it. 



How to influence collective resilience within your teams?

Resilience is all about the context
We rely on those around us to form part of our resilience. The groups in which we operate provide us with social support and a context for how our own ability to cope can be measured. Which is why we need to support our teams’ resilience as they transition to remote working.

Last month we were due to run a launch event in Central London. Adapting to the changing situation, we managed to covert our workshop into a virtual space. It was a huge learning curve for all of the collective and our support team and we thought you might get some valuable insights into Psychological Safety from the end recording. 

We would also like to thank everyone who showed up to the live event.
