I have been having many creative thoughts this year. While it has been a year of stress it has also been a year of opportunity. I have talked about the virtual things that I have been doing and will use this post in Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS AZ Top Banana! and Carol Williams contest.
I have mention how doing things via Zoom has allowed me to do things I couldn’t do before. For example, I was able to fulfill all my duties and spend much more time at our house in Florida.
I did my coaching on Zoom, I did classes on Zoom and held meetings on Zoom.
Ok, so now this is old news. What is next? What creative things will take me to the next level? Let’s imagine not just re opening but after this is all over. Great news. Thinks that I thought would be years from now will be a reality.
Fordham University where I have been teaching the HR Certification course is now doing in person classes. The classes have been changed. Every room has a camera and microphone and a monitor that swivels to face the podium or the classroom. I have had people in class and on Zoom simultaneously. No one has missed a class because of commitment. They simply do that Saturday on Zoom and it is being recorded. I stand in the classroom and engage online and in person at the same time. What a great positive this has become.
Think of meetings such as board meetings or company meetings. You don’t have to miss a meeting in many cases. You can log on and “sit” with everyone else at the conference table.
I know that many are Zoomed out now but think of how this ability will help our work life balance in the future. Possibilities abound!
