The changes that have occurred through the global pandemic have challenged all aspects of our lives. Our normal ways of relating and communicating have been greatly disrupted. For many the normal way of working has changed greatly. These are changes in circumstances that greatly challenge and disrupt our usual ways of doing things. We need to change how we do things and deal with the, often grave, consequences of these changes. The challenges and issues are extreme examples of what many people face in “normal” times. Developing new skills will be useful in responding to these changes and will continue to be useful when circumstances improve.
DBM® provides a range of new skills and skills in managing skills that can greatly help you, your family and friends, your clients, to relate, communicate, and work more effectively through these new challenges and respond successfully to the issues that arise. These skills will be of use now and also for managing more effectively new challenges in the future.
The Main Challenges:
Many of our usual ways of relating are grounded in physical proximity. Not being able to be physically in the same place or having to maintain a distance disrupts how we connect to people. We need to create or learn new ways to connect, bond, relate, and communicate at a distance.
We also depend or a regularity of contact to maintain relationships, especially with family and friends. We need to create or learn new ways to maintain our connections with less frequency of contact.
How we relate and communicate is also challenged. New ways such as through online contact often lacks the depth that we are used to.
The challenges are obvious mainly with how we relate with People. They are not the only ones. How we relate to Activities, Places, Ideas about the world, are also potentially disrupted. Not being able to do what we like doing, changes in how we work, going to places we enjoy, and even disrupting our ideas about how the world is. Many people can suffer from an existential upset; the world is no longer the same as before.
The Main Issues:
As we respond to these challenges a number of issues can emerge. These include:
- Different degrees of Frustration and Anger.
- Different degrees of Disruption.
- Different degrees of Separation.
- Different degrees of Loss.
- Different degrees of Loneliness.
