How incredibly powerful opportunities are emerging in this crisis to help us rethink the DNA of our interactions and collaboration…


How do you approach the world, and life?

You likely tend to consider that things are either ‘half full’ or ‘half empty’. I personally always adopted the half full glass, as a guarantee for an easier life.

So there we have it, the bloody Coronavirus crisis.

Affecting, transforming, crushing, redefining, alienating, crystallising, metabolising our lives and perspectives.

Our social interactions have started to change. The result of social – oops, physical – distancing:

My social stream is full of anecdotes relating to this new social reality. Amidst this novel situation, people are subtly taking notice of some interesting process aspects…

  1. Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for your comment! Ha ha, you helped me realise that the first part of my post might actually sound like a half-empty glass 😉 I didn’t mean it this way, and thank you for shedding useful light on this.
    And for the record: of course there are some fabulous face-to-face meetings. Most gatherings that take facilitation (again, centralised or distributed) seriously tend to be good to awesome. I was rather referring to the flurry of thoughtless, soulless meetings that generate armies of ghouls all coming out jaded about participation and collaboration simply because they didn’t get to experience it really. That reality is there, for sure.
    I miss face-to-face too 😦 and like you I rejoice at this interesting opportunity that presents itself 😀

  2. Always enjoy your musings! While I agree with a lot, I must say I’ve had some fab face to face meetings and will miss those. But in the name of optimism, I am excited to learn lots and adapt!
