Thriving Through Fatigue

The Long Road Ahead: Thriving Through Fatigue

The Pandemic is not a financial recession: it is a fast-paced economic transformation. We’re transforming our companies into low-touch, high-safety businesses and we’re doing it a light speed.

We’re hyper-engaged digitally, yet highly stressed emotionally.

The most stressed part of the workforce is now young families, working mothers, and single employees working at home – and despite the online yoga classes and bread-baking videos, people are just tired.

Fatigue Management is what wins or loses wars.

  • Reduce workload by clarifying goals.
  • Create cadence and recovery cycles in the business.
  • CEO-level focus is needed
  • Take time off to rest, walk, and exercise every day. Stand up and walk around.
  • Turn off the TV and stop watching Twitter.
  • Take it slow. Don’t carry to heavy a load: you’ll get more done if you pace yourself over time.
  • If you’re a manager, help show people what “not to do.” Help people find focus, and don’t waste their time.
  • Turn off your Zoom camera and shorten meetings to 15 minutes if you can. Stop every meeting early.
  • Tell your team to take a week off. And don’t email while they’re gone. Things will be fine when they come back, and work will resume better than ever.
  • Be patient with your colleagues, peers, and yourself. People always want to do the best – right now it may just take a little more time.
  • Have some empathy for leadership. They are tired too. Ask them how they’re doing and let them know you care.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order to prohibit US companies from doing business with Tencent, which owns WeChat and nearly 50% of Epic Games, which makes Fortnite and Unreal Engine. Tik Tok has until September 20th to sell to Microsoft or another American company or it, too, will be banned. Is this because some Kpop fans on Tik Tok spoofed a Trump rally in Tulsa?

how to increase engagement without relying on “cameras on” and asks instructors to be open to different “shapes” of what engagement can look like: “Many teachers have a shape that they think attention and engagement look like, and they work very hard to get students into that shape.” She also has written about forcing students to turn on their cameras from a trauma-informed perspective.
