Reconnection & Management by Walking Around
By Samantha Schilke; July 1, 2021
This summer is bringing the heat in more ways than one. As we get closer to a post-pandemic world, businesses are shifting quickly to face the opportunity-rich, resource-constrained environment. There is a lot to be excited about and at the same time, stress levels remain high with signs of burnout happening across industries and positions. For many, business is booming and teams are working to reconnect at a deeper level.
Strong relationships are built on unstructured time so consider Management by Walking Around (MBWA). This is a way for leaders and managers to immerse themselves in the day-to-day worlds of their team. Not only does this allow leaders to model behaviors and values, it also lets them stay engaged with the people and processes at the heart of the organization.
