While many of us are practicing “Social Distancing” during the COVID-19 outbreak for important safety reasons, we also need to pay attention to our own and our communities psychological safety. One of my Akimbo Coworking Group coaches, Colin Steele, wrote a short blog post about connecting with three people per day over at his blog – https://colinsteele.work/2020/03/19/three-connections-a-day/ and I think the sort of reaching out and connecting he describes will help people feel connected and safe in a real way.
As Colin writes,
It doesn’t have to be much. Just consider what you might do if you reached 100 people (three per day times 30-plus days) and said, “Hey — I see you. I’m thinking of you. How are you? How can I be of service?”
Be safe, practice social distancing, and reach out!
