Right Lane Review — The Collective Pivot
COVID-19 has dominated our news feeds, our conversations and our headspace. What is unique is that we are experiencing this collectively. How we experience it will differ but this pandemic affects all of us.
It’s important to remind ourselves that regardless of how we got there – we pivoted. We brought our office furniture home, found nooks and cupboards to turn into offices, negotiated table space, bemoaned internet speeds and re-negotiated our calendars. The step you take after you pivot is the first of many towards adapting. In this edition of the Right Lane Review we outline processes, tools and practices that will support you to move towards adapting.
