About the Discussion

Relationships within teams are integral to successful organizations, and many organizations suffered the loss of relationships during the pandemic, resulting in ineffective communication and lost productivity. It’s time to rebuild and restore these relationships! Sheryl Chacko discussed why we need to reconnect with our colleagues and provided strategies for how to re-establish the genuine human connections that keep a workplace thriving.

We discussed how to effectively cope with job loss and unemployment because of the pandemic and learned more about how the needs of employers and employees have changed during the pandemic and how we need to adjust our behaviors accordingly.
