Ep #23: Flexibility Under Demand


April 8, 2020

Flexibility Under DemandEveryone is adjusting to the crisis in their own way. Some are able to be more productive than usual while others less. Dr. Roni is choosing to be more compassionate and flexible with her students’ online learning, but not all professors, employers, or systems are as accommodating.

Here’s some truth for you today. Systems aren’t designed to be compassionate. They were never intended to see the differences in human responses to crisis, trauma, or stress. So, why are some employers and establishments still expecting the same level of productivity from their people? If you’re in the uncomfortable position of trying to please a system while also maintaining your sanity and well-being, what are you supposed to do?

If you’re a healthcare worker, maybe the demands are requiring you to overlook your own health and well-being. We’re talking about how to restore your power and handle the consequences that may come with it.
