We’re Here For You

It is impossible to overstate how much, and how quickly, the coronavirus crisis has changed the ways in which we work and live. The COVID-19 outbreak has affected every aspect of our lives — our health, families, careers, finances, and more — and while everyone is experiencing this moment in their own way, the global scale of the crisis means the impact is universal.

This much is clear: everyone is affected. And everyone needs support. That is why Thrive Global has opened up our Behavior Change Platform to create a free Thriving In The New Normal resource kit combining the latest science, storytelling, and actionable Microsteps for navigating this new normal.

This collection of resources — available for download below — is designed to help you and your people in the key areas of need we’re hearing from our enterprise partners worldwide:

- Building Mental Resilience and Physical Immunity
- Working from Home and Navigating Family Life
- Leading in the New Normal with a New Leadership Playbook
- Managing Stress and Anxiety in Uncertain Times

We know that this situation is unpredictable, and that the challenges that come with this are real and unfamiliar. It’s our hope that the resource kits below will help you and your people find inspiration and actionable advice to help navigate this challenging time with less stress and greater resilience.

Actionable Microsteps

At a time when employees are feeling powerless, Thrive Microsteps help your people take control of their mindsets and behaviors.

LEADERSHIP
Make a "Do Not Do" list

In your next one-on-one, help your direct report to make a "Do Not Do" list. It’s anything but business-as-usual right now. By creating a list of what isn’t a priority right now, you’ll empower your team to focus their energy on the projects and results that matter most.

LEADERSHIP
Declare and end to the day

Declare an end to the day, even if you haven’t completed your to-do list. In any leadership position, it’s almost impossible to do all you could have done in any one day. Effectively prioritizing means being comfortable with incompletions and taking the time to recharge, so you’ll return to work the next day ready to seize opportunities.

LEADERSHIP
Learn to detect burnout

Check in with each member of your team about their workload. When everyone is working remotely, it’s much harder to detect the signs of burnout. Ask your direct reports to let you know when they’re overloaded — and also to raise a hand when they have bandwidth to help.

LEADERSHIP
Prioritize your team

Reach out to every member of your team once a day. Even a quick hello will let your colleagues know you’re thinking of them, which helps them feel valued.

LEADERSHIP
Schedule virtual events

Schedule a daily virtual touch-base for your team. When working from home, the synchronicity of connection is removed, so it’s important to replace it with planned events — you could even use this time to integrate another positive habit, like a meditation or gratitude exercise.

LEADERSHIP
Celebrate your small wins

At the end of every day, think about what you accomplished. It's more important than ever to celebrate your small wins — and help your team members to do the same.

LEADERSHIP
Take care of yourself

In your next team meeting, tell your direct reports how you’re taking care of yourself. If you step away from your computer each afternoon for a walk or to FaceTime with your family, sharing this will normalize these important breaks, and open conversation for them to share how they’re doing.

LEADERSHIP
Set boundaries with your team

Set a status or send a quick note to your team when stepping away. Giving a heads up on when you’ll be taking lunch or a walk will help them feel connected while giving you space to set boundaries.

Building Mental Resilience and Physical Immunity

Based on the news coverage, you might think that the only preventive measures you can take are to social distance and wear masks. These are essential, but what we also need to do is to proactively build our mental resilience and strengthen our immune systems.

Working From Home

To successfully adapt and thrive in this new normal, we can’t simply react to COVID-19-related workplace issues as they occur. Rather, we need to monitor key patterns and trends to predict challenges and effectively, proactively direct our efforts. Real-time tracking and analysis of the employee experience throughout this uncertain time is one of the most effective ways to understand how to support our colleagues in meaningful ways as they adapt to new ways of working and living.

Leading In The New Normal: A New Leadership Playbook

For those in leadership positions, the coronavirus crisis is an unprecedented challenge. But navigating the new normal isn’t just about looking out; it’s about looking in. What’s missing from our conversation is how leaders need to show up ready to lead from what is best, wisest, most creative and empathetic in them.

Manage Stress and Anxiety in Uncertain Times

The coronavirus pandemic is spurring a mental health crisis for people all over the world. Join Thrive Global and the Stanford Medicine to learn why helping your employees manage stress and build mental resilience has never been more important.
