‘Telling Tales’, The Musings of a Locked Down CEO

‘Telling Tales’, The Musings of a Locked Down CEO
DAWN STOTT is a Yorkshire author who, when faced with lock down, shared her thoughts and feelings, via regular emails with her work team. The result is a culmination of her musing, along with some impressions, observations and learning that formed the basis for her book.

When the world was side swiped by Covid-19 Dawn was able to deploy her HQ team effectively to work from home but also kept the office open and functioning to ensure the charity’s members, who were working on the front line, were supported.  This hybrid way of working has now become the new normal for many organisations.

At the outset of the pandemic and working disparately she decided the best way to bring everyone together was through one communication.  A morning ‘check in’ if you like.  The purpose was to raise morale, lift spirits and also to pass on important messages to ensure the business continued to function effectively.

Her intention was for the musings to be uplifting, inspiring and to give her colleagues the opportunity to know that it was OK to not be OK.

As a result of responses from her colleagues and family, suggesting she get them published, she decided to follow the positive route rather than listening to those inner voices that challenge us daily when they say such things as:

‘Who would want to read them?’
‘Nobody knows you outside of your work circle, so why would they be of interest?’
‘Who do you think you are?’

Dawn assures you that her musings will remind you of what we were going through as a nation, but also, she hopes, inspire you to look at things differently, be kind and embrace the moment – even during difficult situations.
