...with Physical Distancing”
A term created out the current pandemic we hear every day is “Social Distancing”. While I understand the intent and purpose of the term, I believe it can also lead to unintended emotional isolation during these periods of lockdown and quarantine.
A different perspective came to light yesterday during a conversation with my accountability coach. She got me thinking (as she usually does) about what we are really asking people to do is physical distancing while keeping our social contracts intact.
Every day I reach out to my network, especially those who I have not spoken with in some time. Times like this require more than the normal communications cadence to maintain social continuity. Technology enables us to be more connected than we have ever been in our lifetimes. However, we have to have an attitude that supports a belief in the importance of continuity of the social contract to make it work!
Who will you reach out to today to strengthen your social contract?
Lead Well and Stay Social!
