On this episode

 In this episode, Rachel is joined by Dr Jamie Wyllie, GP and Red Whale Lead. Manage. Thrive! Course presenter. We chat about lockdown, what’s we’ve hated about it, how it’s affected us but also the things that we’ve learned about ourselves, our families and our work.

Many of us have found we’ve had more time and space as activities have been cancelled, many of us have found that we have no time and space at all (depending on our home circumstances) but it’s fair to say that most of us have struggled with the lack of contact with people. We discuss how this lack of informal interaction can erode relationships with work colleagues as we’ve lost the small check ins which mean we can trust each other more and sort out small issues with minimal fuss. 

We talk through the Stop Start Continue model where we learn lessons from what’s gone on and plan how we’re going to do things differently.

Jamie’s top 3 tips are

1. Take stop start continue seriously and invest time in thinking about it
2. Write it down
3. Collaborate – talk it through with friends and colleagues.
