The show must go on despite empty spaces and abandoned places
We don’t know what the post COVID-19 world will look like and we don’t know how long it will take to get used to the new norm.
I made a random list of places many of us don’t meet at anymore with our co-workers. At least up to now.
Subway, tram, train, bus
Sidewalk to the office
Stairs or escalators
Waiting for the elevator and inside the elevator
Office corridors — while keeping the doors open for others
Kitchenette, coffee machine or kettle queue
Fridge, water dispenser, vending machine
Relaxation room, creative space or other common sitting areas
Small meeting rooms
Large meeting rooms
And medium ones
Near coffee tables and newspapers — commenting on a Dilbert comic strip
Cafè, snack bar, bistro in the same building or next to it
Restrooms, by the mirrors
Backyard, garden or terrace
A storage room, a cellar
By the windows
Your buddy’s desk
Time clock badge corner
Park or plaza across the street
Pub, diner, tea room
Bakery or a shop close to the building
Subway, tram, train, bus…
Of course the list is made with the type of offices I am familiar with.
This list can be completely different depending on the profession.
What places would you include in your list?
Comment to let me know.
I write about organizational patterns, transformational leadership, healthy businesses, high-performing teams…
