 featured image

Over the past year, there was no getting away from being bombarded with information regarding the future world of work and how the technological advances, disruption and innovation it will bring, will acutely change the world we live in and definitely also the world we work in. As people are all different, some reacted to this with excited anticipation and others with mistrust and fear.

Little did we know, while we were thinking into the future and planning on how we will cope with it when it is finally here, that the whole world will face an epidemic that will disrupt life as we know it. That it will, in fact, shake our existence to the core and bring with it the kind of uncertainty and complexity that can easily lead to anxiety, emotional exhaustion, fear and panic, but also feelings of anger, depression and helplessness.
