From Breakdown to Breakthrough
Now that the work stoppage is over, returning to work poses your biggest challenge.
Not the physical aspect of returning to work. The challenge is in restoring, and even building on what was lost. Trust. Respect. Co-operation. Motivation. The challenge is in dissolving a range of complicated emotions. Feelings of suspicion. Resentment. Disrespect. Loss of control.
Your striking employees have endured long hours on the picket lines in all kinds of weather. Their finances are stretched. Tempers may have run short and relationships are strained. Some may have crossed the picket lines. Some may have had to seek other employment.
Your non-striking employees have been working longer hours, or taking on unfamiliar jobs to ensure that the work continues. Personal stress builds and relationships are strained.
Each ‘side’ sees the other as an adversary. Both sides need to heal.
From BreakDown to BreakThrough supports that healing. The curriculum offers segments on communication, perceptual intelligence, emotional healing and balance. Tools that allow the bridges to be re-built. Stronger than they have ever been!
Day one of the program can be as a stand-alone experience to introduce tools for both sides of your workforce, or it can be incorporated as the first day of a 5 day program designed to support communication, restore relationships, and to regain trust.
