The change in our work arrangements happened rapidly, seemingly overnight. Immediately, we all had to deal with the stress of sudden changes to our routines. Some of us faced the pressure of being essential service heroes serving on the front line. Others had to learn how to balance working remotely with family life. Moreover, some had to deal with becoming an “employee-in-waiting” as furloughs or layoffs were implemented.

From changes in the way we can travel to new technologies, policies and procedures in the workplace, what is certain that there is no going back to what ‘used to be’. That train has left the station. What can we do to respond to the changes before us and cultivate an outlook which will feed our ability to adapt and thrive to our ‘new normal’.
