It’s been a year when pretty much everything has felt completely out of control. In fact, that is probably one of the big lessons we have all learnt, is how little we actually do control.
A contract protects both you as the employer, and the employee. It allows you to be specific about what you expect of your employee and what happens if it all goes wrong. It is a safety net for you both. It’s different to an award which is the minimum; you need to comply whether you want to or not.
The first question after the initial navel gazing is whether an organisation has the appetite for embarking upon such a journey. If there’s a sufficiently compelling “why”. And if not, how much of the impact of the current culture is the organisation prepared to tolerate?
Perhaps it is understanding that employees have a need to be safe and comfortable. By safe I mean that your boss doesn’t try to lure you into bed against your wishes. And by comfortable I mean that you’re able to access the most basic of human biological needs as needed.
If being on repeat sounds like you. Or you feel as though your head is filled with unfinished or unresolved thoughts, coaching may be a process that helps you sort through those thoughts to move forward.
