The housing community faced many challenges in 2020. We are so happy to have Pauline join us to share her thoughts on versatility and how it helped her overcome the many obstacles that both she and her staff faced.  

We talk about overcoming hurdles like new technology, rapidly changing policies and procedures, and home-based work. Perhaps most importantly, we also discuss the impact on everyone’s mental health and how we can better support each other.

So please listen in as we discuss professional adaptability and how to master new ways of doing business.

Some questions we consider:

  • How did we engage with our employees in 2020 during the pandemic? What were some of the biggest obstacles?
  • What did we learn about the different generations we have as employees in regards to engagement?
  • Were the worries different? And how?
  • Tell me how your teams learned technology and stayed adaptable during 2020.
  • What changed YOU in 2020?

What one actionable tips could you share that has served you well as an educator?

People will adapt if that is the only option that is available.
