Lockdowns; vaccinations; cancelled vacations – not the usual festive themes.

Back to the office for some but not for all – not the normal start to the year.

A new year always holds new opportunities. This one requires more growth, adjustment & learning!

Through this next phase of transition, we need to ask very simple but powerful question of ourselves and our team(s): “what’s possible?”.

  • What’s possible if I trust my team to deliver great results?
  • What’s possible if we collaborate more fully on projects?
  • What’s possible if we focus on output, not hours at the desk?

In mid-2020, Roland Busch CEO of Global Fortune 500 company Seimens, made a statement about their approach to remote work.

“These changes will require a different leadership style, one that focuses on outcomes rather than on time spent at the office.

We trust our employees & empower them to shape their work themselves so that they can achieve the best possible results.

With the new way of working, we’re motivating our employees while improving the company’s performance capabilities & sharpening Siemens’ profile as a flexible and attractive employer.”

This was a key success factor for Seimens, not just during the peak of the pandemic, but to provide a competitive advantage in the long term.

So, what adjustments would give you an advantage? How could you get more done in 2021…without working longer or harder?
