EEC 133: Authentic Connections Given the Current Crisis
Amy Lynn Durham is interviewed by Dr. Katrina Burrus, MCC and discusses the following:
- What can leaders do to bring authentic connection and meaning to a “beer after work” team build?
- Given the current COVID-19 situation where everyone is physical distancing, how can we forge authentic connection via virtual meetings and even virtual happy hours?
- With the hundreds of employees that you’ve managed, what have you found has been the most effective way to bring diverse, competitive personalities into a more collaborative space?
- What have you done in the past when you had individuals that didn’t get along, or didn’t necessarily like each other on the team?
- What are some ways to set an intention to transform a team to becoming collaborative and supportive of each other?
- At what point did you discover that utilizing your expense budget on employees for a cocktail or dinner after work wasn’t the most effective way to connect?
