These days the division of a large multinational decided to create a whatsapp group to talk only about personal issues of employees. There they exchange information and tips on how they are taking the quarantine, share family photos, their pets, celebrate birthdays, support each other. It's just not worth talking about work! This generated a feeling of closeness in the whole team.
Personal relationships became stronger, increasing professional ones. The team feels it has evolved by diminishing the traditional divisions of "being personal" and "being professional." Ideas abound at the moment. As a leader, the more you demonstrate your human side; By being open and empathetic, the more trusting relationships will strengthen.
