A weekly round up of blog posts I've been reading
I hope you aren’t too busy in the run-up to the festive break; it has that “quick get everything done now” feel in the air.
Continuing the theme of busyness, this week, I took part in a panel at an internal conference, and a question came up that I see in pretty much every organisation that I see: how do we do the supporting work when everyone is just too busy? No matter how many people there are, there is always more to do and things to deliver, leaving no time for the other things that aren’t “the work”.
This makes it a challenge to work on initiatives that help sustainability, collaboration, creativity, growing capability or general well-being. Those things make work smoother and more effective. Our challenge is telling the stories and showing the value these efforts bring to both people and the organisation.
Enjoy this week’s links, and happy Friday.
