Leading Through the Pandemic: Six Practices For Better Engagement
More than a year ago COVID forced us to burrow into our homes. For many, that meant radically novel work environments: Zoom meetings, kitchen table desks, commutes counted in steps rather than miles.
As we emerge from our dens and tip-toe our way back into the office, we will encounter workplaces in the midst of radical evolution. Among many other things, my client’s observation reveals that our muscle memory for simple workplace socialization and collaboration has grown weak, with so many months of toiling remotely and alone.
P.S. — Note Bad COVID Habits
We humans are an especially adaptable species. Some of us adapted to living above the Arctic Circle, for generations. Others spend their lives in jungle villages, or urban downtowns with far more concrete and asphalt than nature. After a year of COVID, many of us have adapted to a new workplace normal, one that merges
Brighter Days Ahead
With so many Americans now finally vaccinated, there is light at the end of this dark tunnel. Unfortunately, we still don’t grasp the tunnel’s length. We will emerge this year into a new world.

Sheldon has a way of quickly getting straight to the heart of a matter and saying exactly what you need to hear to make meaningful change and move forward on the path to improvement.
I recommend a notebook when working with him so you can write down his sage advice as it will continue to reveal truths as you reflect over time. Time with Sheldon pays dividends personally and professionally.
He is truly gifted and he is a gift. I’m very grateful for his guidance.
I met Sheldon over 10 years ago as part of the Authentic Leadership program at Naropa.
I knew right away that he was a person I wanted to learn from and work with.
Sheldon has worked with myself and our core coffee team as a personal coach and facilitator of leadership and culture workshops.
We wake up & kick ass with purpose every day, thanks in part to Sheldon’s wisdom, insight, knowledge and experience.
Thank you Sheldon!
Sheldon was insightful in identifying our biggest issues to fix, while helping us realize that we are doing most things right and to not be so hard on ourselves. Since then, we have continued with various strategy and coaching lessons over the past year. We will continue to work with Sheldon.
He truly listens, and is both insightful and intuitive, and asks the right questions. He is a nice guy, but does not let you off the hook. He reminds you that you would not be doing this if you were not already successful. We are – I am – learning to work “on” the business and not just “in” the business.
