Article by Doula Theodosi, Return to Work Consultant, nb&a group
Published via LinkedIn
Looking back at the article published on Influencing Return to Work (October 2015), we explored asking great questions and the reasons why this is important.
We also acknowledge that, as leaders and managers, we are developing and assisting people to be the best they can be in their practice to achieve return to work outcomes.
Our position is often underpinned by the habits and patterns of behaviour we adopt, where sometimes we associate our success with habits that don’t necessarily work well. We become very comfortable with what we know and do in practice. At times, this prevents us from driving our own continuous improvement and assisting others to do the same, and compromises our potential.
