Lydia Saad, Director of U.S. Social Research at Gallup, and Adam Hickman, Senior Workplace Strategist at Gallup, were our guests on a recent Called to Coach. Just over a year ago, the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States. What do coaches, managers, and organizational leaders need to know about U.S. employee attitudes and workplace practices about remote work during this time, including how they have changed? What opportunities do coaches have to assist those they coach in navigating a work situation that is still fluid? How can managers engage in conversations and direct practices that facilitate employee productivity as many are returning to the office or want to keep working remotely, regardless of the pandemic's status, or seek a hybrid work situation? What challenges exist in the areas of remote-work burnout, and what is the future of remote working?

Gallup Called to Coach Webcast Series -- Season 9, Episode 13.

If you have a coaching conversation with a leader of some sort, or a policymaker, ... ask, "What is the plan?" ... Even better is ... "Can every employee find themselves within this policy or strategy you've come up with?"

Self-awareness is a very important part of the puzzle to being successful in the world going forward. And knowing yourself and knowing how you interact best, and that comes back to knowing your strengths.

Burnout means something completely different for every person that's on your team or that you work with.
