Our team is getting back together!
 

As companies begin to negotiate their paths back to pre-pandemic operations, we're hearing the term "return to work" a lot. The problem with that term: we never left work. We just brought work home and learned to juggle a different work-home balance.


Now that nearly half of the country is fully vaccinated, MoreSteam, like many other companies, is mapping out what office life will be as we emerge from the pandemic. Peg Pennington shares a few insights about MoreSteam's approach and how the plan aligns with the Lean culture.

Data, Data, and More Data

One thing that the COVID pandemic has provided is an abundance of data. Data visualizations on popular sites like the CDC and John Hopkins often appear in the news. Here's an example to ponder: is it informative? or overwhelming?

CLOSING THOUGHT

 

"At the end of the day, I always say, nobody cares about your story unless you win it." -Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns, after 2021 NBA Finals loss to Milwaukee Bucks

You can agree or disagree, but the thing to notice is that this is how a championship loss feels to a 15-year NBA veteran, 11-time All-Star, winner of an NBA Rookie of the Year Award, an NBA All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Award, and two Olympic gold medals.

Basketball

Good thing to keep in mind for any coach. Be it a loss on the court or on a project that hits a dead end, team members sometimes need to be reminded of their contributions in the bigger picture. Sometimes, the long game provides a different perspective than the short game.
