Coming to the end of the year can bring your team to both types of ‘blues’.
Over many years of supporting teams in ‘troubled waters’, we notice that as teams enter the final quarter of the year and Christmas starts to feature in plans, frustrations that have been minor during the year, when the team had the energy to push on through them, become problematic. Relationships within the team can become strained and erupt into ‘blues’ between team members.
Managers then attempt to resolve quickly and move onto deadlines, but at this time of year, that strategy often fails, only for issues to arise again in a more intractable form.
At the same time, there are many mental health issues, like the ‘blues’ that, rather than improving with the anticipated ‘joys of Christmas’ can become much worse.
Managers assistance is available to assist managers to traverse these difficult waters.
Phone, face to face and online support are available. Simply go to our contacts page to arrange. Our credit card receipts simply indicate “Managers Assistance”.
