It is Okay to Feel Nervous (Anxious Even)

“COVID normal” is almost upon us. In Victoria (Australia) we are now allowed to have more people onsite. Businesses can have up to 75% of their workforce in the office. And, just like working from home caused nervousness and anxiety, so too will going back into the office.

Here are some things you could try to help deal with those nerves:

1. Talk about your feelings with colleagues.

2. Discuss transition arrangements (i.e., don’t go back into work 5 days a week).

3. As leaders, don’t expect massive improvements to productivity just because “we’re all onsite now”.
