3 Ways Creative Entrepreneurs Can Innovate in a Post-Pandemic World

Rolling Stone

In a post-pandemic world, it's important to realize innovation is key to staying ahead of the curve. EVERYONE THINKS THERE will be a “new normal.” After all the craziness that has taken place over the past year-plus with the pandemic, many are expecting to wake up one day and gently slide into “normal 2.0,” establishing a new regular routine that is certain, predictable and safe. The problem? It’s not going to happen. There will not be one new “normal 2.0” that you can get cozy and comfortable with like before. There will likely be normal 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 and so on.

Six ways to help guide employees through multiple changes

People Management

Change – even good change – in an organisation is always stressful, and the more change there is the more stress there is. So when multiple changes occur, stress levels among your staff are unusually high. This peak in stress occurs because employees are forced to step out of their comfort zone and embrace, or at least accept, something new. Adapting to change takes time and energy, especially when your employees are expected to remain productive.
